  • Kingston rallies to defeat Blue...

    On Jan. 12, The Associated Press announced Harriman High School as the 10th best Class A boys basketball team in the state of Tennessee.

    Fast forward a few days and the Kingston Krazies were chanting “overrated” as the Yellow Jackets defeated the Blue Devils 76-69.

    “This town needs games like that,” Kingston head coach Colt Narramore said. “We need wins against a good team. Our student section is just dying to cheer for us. Our whole community just showed up to watch. That’s about as good of a high school atmosphere as you’re going to get in the state of Tennessee.”

  • Oliver Springs Hall of Fame gets...

    For most coaches and athletes, being bestowed the honor of a hall-of-fame induction is the pinnacle of a career. However, for the three newest members of the Oliver Springs Hall of Fame, that pinnacle was going in with family.

    Tuesday night, immediately following the Lady Cats 55-41 victory over Oneida, Eddie Walls, Ron Hackworth and, his daughter, Jessie Hackworth were all recognized for their contributions to the school.

  • Lady Cats down Oneida

    Through three and half quarters, Oliver Springs couldn’t quite shake the Lady Indians.

    After leading by only three points in the last period of play, the Lady Cats closed out with a 14-3 run en route to a 62-48 victory over Oneida.

    “Big win.” Oliver Springs head coach Michelle Christopher said. “I thought the kids really stepped up tonight and came ready to play and did what they needed to do to get a big win.”

  • ‘Next man up’ helps Bobcats find...

    Oliver Springs head coach Tony Ingram said it took a little while for things to open up for his team Tuesday night against Oneida.

    Once they did, despite the absence of starter Aaron Noe — who served the last of a two-game suspension — the Bobcats defeated the Indians 55-41.

    “They played us in zone a lot, kind of forcing our hand to some outside shots,” Ingram said. “It took us a little while, but we were finally able to knock a couple down, especially late. It was a tight ball game and we opened it up with some shots.”

  • Roane State holds on to defeat...

    After opening up with a 17-6 run, Roane State was able to hold off a late rally from Cleveland State to secure an 80-73 victory on their home court Wednesday night.

  • Raiderettes edge past Vikings

    Not every game is a 101-100 shootout — sometimes it’s the defense that steps up and helps a team win.

    That was the case for the Raiderettes Wednesday night as they grinded out a 58-51 victory over Cleveland State.

    “Definitely just glad to get a conference win,” Roane State head coach Monica Boles said.

  • Lady Wave stay unbeaten, Tigers...

    Monday night, the Tigers of Rockwood took the road to travel to Midway to battle the Green Wave.

    Each team was able to pick up a victory on the evening.

    The Lady Wave grabbed a 47-26 victory while the Tigers took home a 46-15 win.

    Midway was undefeated coming into the game, and were able to leave the gym that way.

    8th grader Karlee Bowling, tossed up 24 of her Lady Tiger’s 26 on the night.

  • Lady Cats defense holds Harriman...

    It wasn’t a high-scoring affair, but that didn’t matter for Oliver Springs Middle School Monday night.

    After getting out to an early 6-0 lead, the Lady Cats defeated Harriman Middle 21-6.

    “We struggled to score, it was a defensive battle,” Oliver Springs head coach Tonya Snyder said. “We like to push tempo and we did a good job of that.

    “That’s been our story this year, we’ve struggled to score, but I like their hustle and their heart and their effort.”
