  • Hot bats propel Devils to title

    Revenge is usually best served cold, but this time 67 degrees was the right temperature.

    A week to the day that the Harriman Blue Devils lost the 1A District 3 title game to Wartburg, Harriman rebounded by shelling the Bulldogs with big hits to win the Region 2 championship, 19-4, Wednesday evening in Wartburg.

    Harriman struck first.

    “We came into tonight’s game and just hit the ball,” Harriman Coach Andy Adcox said. “Last week was last week, we played a night game and was tired, but that’s no excuse.

    Winning the regular season AA district championship with relative ease was a great way for the Cherokee Yellowjackets to end their season.

    It was icing on the cake to win the district tournament the hard way by having to play four games in one day to come out of the loser’s bracket and defeat North Middle twice to take the first place trophy.

    Cherokee was the number one seed going into the tournament and played Lenoir City on April 25 and defeated the Panthers 14-0.

  • Jets derail Kingston soccer post...

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets’ post-season run ended Tuesday evening with a 2-1 loss to the Cumberland County Jets in the Region 2AA semi-final game in Crossville.

    The Jets scored twice in the first half to put pressure on Kingston early.

    The Jackets were able to get on the board in the second half thanks to a penalty kick from Avery Sinnott, but that was as close as they could get.

    Kingston finishes the season with a 3-3-1 record.

    In what was, for the most part, a defensive game, the Kingston Yellow Jackets fell to the Pigeon Forge Tigers, 4-0, Monday evening in Pigeon Forge in the Region 2 2AA Baseball Semi-finals. The Tigers scored their runs in just two innings, the fourth and fifth.

    As noted this was a defensive game and pitchers’ duel on both sides of the bat.
