    Oliver Springs traveled to Kodak Friday night and left the foothills with a 31-0 drubbing of the Northview Academy Cougars.

    The win made the Bobcats’ second straight shutout against a division 3A school, Kingston being the first victim.

    The defense of Oliver Springs once again dominated the offensive line, only allowing 5 first downs and 54 total yards.

    “Can’t say enough about the defensive side of the ball,” said Bobcat Head Coach Larry Green.

    Midway High School has gone 3-0 to start off the 2018 season.

    It has been a number of years since this has happened and they are certainly starting a ruckus with this record so far.

    Not only have they started off strong but one of the teams they beat was Rockwood, who they have not beaten for 13 years.

    Upon talking to a few team members and Coach Ryen Minton, they have explained what it’s like to have this new record.

    The fans got their money’s worth Tuesday evening as Wartburg traveled to Harriman to take on the Lady Devils in a high school volleyball matchup.

    It took five games to decide the winner as the Lady Dogs took the first two matches (25-18 & 25-21) but Harriman rallied to take the next two (25-19 & 25-19) with game five going down to the wire and Wartburg making a late game comeback to win 19-17, taking three out of five to get the win.

  • Don’t judge Pruitt on just one game

    By Ben Briley

    Not only is it his first game this season, it’s Head Coach Jeremy Pruitt’s first game ever following his first offseason ever. Let’s cut him some slack.

    Tennessee drops the opening game of the season to West Virginia 40-14 in mediocre fashion.

    I personally expected the Vols to shut down Will Grier’s powerful offense after halftime, but I was proven wrong.

    First off, West Virginia is a playoff-caliber team.
