    The Harriman Lady Blue Devils are off to a great start as David Currier’s squad ran their season mark to 6-0 recently with a 7-1 victory over Westmoreland.

    The game was limited to five innings because Harriman was hosting both Coalfield and Westmoreland, but the amount of time didn’t seem to matter as the Lady Devils were in control from the outset.

    Lady Devil pitcher Kayla Turner had another strong outing as she tossed a one-hitter with two walks to go along with four strikeouts.

    There’s not a lot Richard Pickell hasn’t accomplished on the basketball court.

    As a player, Pickell was a starter on Lenoir City’s 1958 state championship team. He was later enshrined into the Lenoir City Hall of Fame for that accomplishment.

    As a coach, Pickell amassed 561 wins in 30 years as a head coach. Twenty-four of those years came at Harriman where he’s most remembered for leading the 1995 Blue Devils to the TSSAA Class AA State Championship.

    Wartburg outlasted Harriman 5-4 in 10 innings last Tuesday to open up the 2008 high school baseball season.

    In what many consider two of the top teams in Region 2-A, the game lived up to the hype as the Bulldogs (1-0) found a way to pull out the win at home.

    The first two innings were scoreless until the top of the third when Harriman's Cody Pierce gave the Devils a 1-0 lead, but Wartburg responded right back with a three-run outburst in the bottom of the inning.

    Fans attending Monday’s softball game between Kingston and Coalfield were treated to a good old-fashioned pitching duel between a pair of youngsters, Kingston freshman Jessica Korb and Coalfield eighth-grader Lindsey Fadnek.

    The duo combined to strikeout 25 hitters on the night while giving up just seven hits, but in the end it would be the Lady Jackets from Kingston defending their home turf with a 4-1 victory.

    Maybe week two will be better than week one for the Kingston Yellow Jackets.

    Last week, the Jackets opened their season with four straight losses. The first two losses came against district foe Loudon, loss No. 3 was at county rival Rockwood then the Jacket lost their opening round contest of the 2008 Roane County Tournament against McMinn Central by a 12-2 margin.

    Kingston did play well early on against the Chargers and actually held a lead after two innings of play.
