  • Tigers drop Indians in Christmas...

    Speed may kill, but, as the Rockwood Tigers proved on Tuesday night, defense decimates as they took a 52-34 win over the Oneida Indians.

    The Tigers roared to life throughout the first period with a 14-4 swing as Jason Gaus (7 points) led the Tigers early on.

    Rockwood padded that lead to 23-8 at the half with a 9-4 swing through period number two with Isiah Jones (3 points) leading the Tigers in second period scoring.

  • Rockwood offense struggles in...

    Despite keeping it close early, the Rockwood girls fell to Oneida 34-21.

    “I felt like we played hard,” Rockwood head coach Amy Breazeale said. “I feel like we are getting better at what we do, and that’s what this tournament is about.”

    The Lady Tigers held with Oneida in the first quarter, only trailing 11-8, thanks in part to Lexie Hill.

  • Panthers out-shoot Tigers for win

    Both the Rockwood Tigers and Lenoir City Panthers found success from beyond the arch Wednesday night, combining for nineteen 3-pointers, but it was Lenoir City who came away with the 66-60 on New Year’s Eve.

    The Panthers started the game on a 7-0 run before an 11-6 run by Rockwood narrowed the gap to 13-11 late in the first period. However, a 7-1 surge to close out the first stanza gave Lenoir City the early 20-12 lead. Case Miller led the Tigers in opening period scoring with 9 points.

  • Hill to thrill

    The final game of the Harriman Christmas Tournament on New Year’s Eve was a possible region tournament matchup between the Lady Jackets of Coalfield, and the Lady Tigers of Rockwood.

    With the new year just hours away, the two teams battled inside Richard Pickell Gymnasium with the Tigers coming away with a 36-34 victory.

    Both teams came into the contest with one win a piece.

    Coalfield had picked up a victory over Harriman and a loss to Kingston. Rockwood had one win over Jellico and a loss to Oneida.

  • Bad call? School could pay

    Criticism of game officials could hit schools in the pocketbooks.

    The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association Legislative Council approved an addition to the bylaws at the Dec. 10 meeting in Hermitage.

    Section 8 says TSSAA schools are responsible for how coaches conduct themselves.

    “Public criticism of game officials by administrators or coaches will result in a fine of $500 assessed to the school,” the section states.

  • History on the hardwood

    It was a milestone game; Cooper and his teammates wore jerseys to honor the former Campbell High School, a school for African Americans during the days of segregation.

    The regional school was in Rockwood and was noted for both its athletics and academics.
