  • Midway’s Campbell leaves for...

    Midway is once against looking for a head football coach.

    Now former Green Waves head coach Joe Campbell announced he would be leaving Midway to take over the reins of Loudon High School’s football team.

    “I’m excited,” Campbell said, “but it’s a mixture of emotions. The hardest part was to look at my players (and tell them).”

    During his four-year tenure South of the River, Campbell racked up a 22-24 overall record and reached the playoffs in three seasons.

  • Raiderettes fall to Columbia...

    The Roane State Raiderettes couldn’t find their swing as they lost a doubleheader to Columbia State. Roane State was unable to get the bats going at all in the first game as they lost the contest 9-0 and the game ended early, as the run-rule came in to effect after the fifth.

    The first inning showed some offense for Columbia State, as they were able to pull out three quick runs to jump ahead early. The Raiderettes got two runners into scoring position in the bottom of the first but were unable to pull any runs out of it to end the first.

    “You just never know how a game will go,” said Coalfield head coach Andy Lowe.
