  • Lady Jackets pick up consolation...

    Despite both teams being eliminated from District 4-AA tournament championship contention, Kingston did find its way into both consolation brackets.

    While the Lady Jackets held off Scott for a 54-45 win — earning themselves the third seed — the boys fell to Alcoa, 60-53.

    The Lady Jackets went back-and-forth with Scott early in the first period before Kingston ripped off a 7-0 run to put them ahead, 13-6.

  • Harriman boys, girls secure...

    After a five-day break for being on the court, the Harriman Lady Devils returned to District 3-A action on Thursday against Tellico Plains.

    With third place in the district on the line, the Lady Devils defended their home court to the tune of a 46-39 win.

    “I think Tellico Plains is a very good team,” Harriman head coach Johnny Jones. “… They’re one of the most physical, hardest playing teams on our schedule. To beat them three times, I just don’t know what to think about it.”

  • Winter weather causes district,...

    With the week of wintery weather resulting in district basketball play across the state being rearranged, the Tennessee Secondary School Athletics Association has also made changes to the region tournaments.

  • NFL Scouting Combine: How much...

    Between Snowpocalypse bringing what social media describes as “certain death” to Roane County, “breaking news” about some deflated balls that nobody cares about anymore and a basketball game between those two Carolina teams, the past week has been nothing short of hectic.

    As of writing this at 11:37 a.m. on Thursday morning, I haven’t left my house since Monday and I don’t really anticipate doing so until at least Friday. I wouldn’t count on district games being played by then, anyway.

  • Bobcats rally, fall short...

    A fast start by the high-flying Oakdale Eagles proved too much to overcome for the Oliver Springs Bobcats as Oakdale would punch their ticket to the District 4-A Tournament Finals via a 55-51 win on Saturday night.

    Following a 5-5 start to the first period, the Eagles left the Bobcats seeing red with a 12-5 tilt to close out the opening period with a 17-10 lead.

    Tyler Steinmentz (7 points) led Oakdale in the opening period while Aaron Noe (4 points) guided the Bobcats early on.

  • Lady Jackets advance, just not...

    After overcoming an early deficit, the Kingston Lady Jackets saw their District District 4-AA Tournament championship hopes come crashing down with a 43-38 loss to Christian Academy of Knoxville.

    Missed shots and turnovers cost the Lady Jackets early as the Lady Warriors built up a 16-5 advantage early in the first quarter.

    Despite the significant size advantage of the CAK squad, Kingston found success from Rachel Layne inside the paint.

    Layne — one only two players to score in the quarter — scored 7 points with 6 of the coming the paint.

  • Green Waves shooting can’t match...

    The Midway Green Waves season came to a close last Friday night after a 90-66 loss to the second seed Meigs County Tigers in the first round of the District 3-A Tournament.

    Midway ends the year with a 5-23 record and will say good bye to four seniors.

    Midway head coach Darrell Ruffner decided to go for broke Friday against Meigs County.

    His Green Waves pumped in 11 3-point baskets in the, but to no avail against the hot shooting Tigers.

  • Bobcats hang on to beat Bulldogs

    When Oliver Springs and Wartburg square off in anything you know it’s going to be a show.

    The Bulldogs of Wartburg traveled down the familiar road the square off against the Bobcats in the opening round of the District 4-A tournament, but were sent back home with a 76-58 loss.

    Oliver Springs had big scoring performances from several people, but the combined 38 points from Aaron Noe and Taylor Murray was the spark the Cats needed to pick up the victory.

  • Harriman boys find way to skin...

    There’s an old expression that goes along the lines of there being more than one way to skin a cat.

    Luckily for the Harriman Blue Devils they found a way that worked, punching their ticket to the District 3-A Tournament Semifinals on Friday night with a 59-50 win over Rockwood.

    “It was a competitive, hard-fought game on both sides tonight,” Harriman head coach Wesley Jones said.

  • Kingston falls to CAK in...

    In their second game in as many days, the Kingston Yellow Jackets lost to Knoxville Catholic, 40-21.

    The loss eliminates them from District Tournament Championship contention.

    A winless regular season district record forced the Yellow Jackets into a play-in game Thursday night against Scott. It took going to overtime, but Kingston walked away with the 80-73 victory to earn the chance to play Knoxville Catholic on its home floor.
