It was another hot day for the Tennessee Valley Athletic Association (TVAA) Saturday. This would make the third hot and humid weekend for the league, including the jamboree on Aug. 16.
Oliver Springs’ game with Midway was moved up an hour to try to beat the heat. More early starts may be used before the heat wave slows down.
The first two weeks of the 2014 football season is off to a great start for the Midway Green Wave, Harriman Blue Devils and Rockwood Tigers, as all three records of 2-0.
Despite a depleted squad with six out of 20 players inactive due to injury, the Harriman Lady Blue Devils held their own against the Oneida Lady Indians before falling by a 5-1 margin on Tuesday.
The Rockwood Lady Tigers picked up their seventh straight win of the young season Tuesday evening with an easy 11-0 victory over Tellico Plains at Mike “Brillo” Miller Sports Complex.
The game was never in doubt as the Lady Tigers scored eight goals in the first 40 minutes of play.
After a day off for Labor Day, the Kingston Lady Yellow Jackets went back to work Tuesday and put together their strongest performance of the season in winning at Cumberland County, 6-0.
The Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission passed an amended proclamation that sets a split statewide waterfowl season for 2014-15.
The action came at the commission’s August meeting which concluded Friday afternoon at the West Tennessee Research and Education Center.
The Rockwood Lady soccer team had a busy three days starting Thursday playing four games during that span at the 2014 Berean Christian Blood:Water Invitational at Victor Ashe Park in Knoxville.
The long weekend proved fruitful for Wes Ford’s squad, as the Lady Tigers went 4-0 to run their season mark to 6-1.
In what was a hard-fought effort by the Kingston Lady Jackets and Stone Memorial Lady Panthers battled to a 1-1 draw Thursday evening at Southwest Point.
The Midway Green Wave ran their record to 2-0 with a good, but strange, 27-6 win over Whitwell Friday night in Whitwell.
The Green Wave were out gained in total yardage 293-271, but still managed to pull off a convincing win over the Tigers.
