    The Rockwood boys tennis team remained undefeated on the season recently by picking up a 6-3 victory over Carter.

    The victory marks the fourth time this season that the Tigers have been able to win despite forfeiting two matches. Rockwood has just five players and cannot field a team in the singles No. 6 match nor the doubles No. 3 match.

    Rockwood did, however, win six of the seven matches that they competed in. The Tigers went 4-1 in singles and 2-0 in doubles.

    In the two games, Coalfield pounded out 32 hits, including 14 extra base hits in staying perfect in the district.

    Jenifer Laurendine’s Coalfield softball team remained perfect in the district with a pair of wins against Oneida last Monday and Tuesday.

    With former Rockwood head coach David Lane now an assistant at Roane State and four Tiger players having already signed scholarships to play for the Raiders this fall, it’s no wonder that the Tigers felt at home Thursday in their 16-7 victory over Midway in a game played at Roane State.

    The streak started last week with a 3-1 victory over District 4-AA foe Anderson County and it continued Monday and Tuesday with district victories over Stone Memorial. The Jackets downed the Panthers 19-6 on Monday and 5-0 on Tuesday.
