    The Kingston Yellow Jackets started the basketball season with an 84-78 win against the Cumberland County Jets Tuesday night at Roane County High School.

    “I thought we did a really good job offensively tonight,” Yellow Jacket Coach Colt Narramore said. “We’re really working to attack the paint.”

    The Jets struck first when Trevor Parsons sank a shot almost immediately after tipoff.

    On Kingston’s next trip down the court, sophomore Brady Luttrell sank an open three-pointer to give the Jackets the advantage, 3-2.

    The season didn’t get off to a good start for the Kingston Lady Jackets Tuesday night as they lost at home to Cumberland County, 77-50.

    The Lady Jets size and experience came into play early and it was a combo Kingston had trouble dealing with for the entire evening.

    In the early goings, Kingston was able to keep pace at it worked the ball inside to Amadea Pankey in the post.

    The scrappy senior post player floated out to beyond the perimeter to catch Cumberland County’s defense napping to sink a pair of three-point shots.

  • Resilient Tigers to meet Meigs

    Sometimes, stories write themselves.

    The Rockwood Tigers find themselves in a similar situation as compared to last year as they go into tonight’s playoff game with Meigs County.

    Rockwood (7-4) faced the top-ranked Meigs team in week five this year with Meigs emerging with a 46-6 win.

    Much like last year, the game was a turning point for the Tigers as the team used it as a focal point to improve and grow.

    Rockwood’s offense ignited afterwards and joined the already stout defense in more effective outings.
