  • New year, new coach, new Vols!

    The New Year has begun and it’s probably the best thing that could happen to the University of Tennessee football team.

    I hate to be the one to say it, but Tennessee had their worst season in the history of the program. 2018 could be a lot better for Tennessee, but it also could be another rebuilding year for football.

    I know people are probably thinking that we have had like 12-13 years of rebuilding or whatever but it true to a point. 2017 was 100% not good when it came to the pigskin.

    “I thought our starters came out with a bunch of energy tonight and played really well early,” Kingston Coach Colt Narramore said. “It allowed us to get a bunch of our guys in.

  • Kingston out shoots Oliver...

    The Kingston Lady Jackets got off to a fast start against the visiting Oliver Springs Lady Bobcats and never looked back on the way to a 71-30 win Thursday evening at Roane County High School gym.

    “It was a big win,” Kingston Coach Connie Guinn said. “We’ve had a rough couple of weeks, going 0-4 in the last four games.

    “We practiced on some things this week and I was very pleased most of all with our effort tonight.”

    The Lady Jackets took advantage of aggressive defense to set up their quick strike offense.

  • Volunteers’ signings give hope

    With Christmas in the rear view mirror, things are starting to point towards football season.

    That’s just a joke but not really. To start things off I will touch on a subject that I haven’t in very much detail, Lady Vol basketball.

    For Vols fans, the Lady Vols basketball team is usually third in popularity behind football and the men’s basketball team.

    It’s not secret that things haven’t been perfect for Holly Warlick and her Lady Vols since she took the team over.

  • Lenoir City claws Rockwood

    By Damichael Cole


    On a wet and rainy day outside, the Rockwood Tigers girls and boys basketball teams took the court against the Lenoir City Panthers.

    Rain and darkness are a combination that don’t usually lead to the best of days, and it was hard for the Tigers to weather the storm on Tuesday night.

    In the first game, the girls faced a tenacious Panthers defense that constantly created pressure defensively, making it hard on the Tigers offense.
