    Monday night brought together rivals that have had very many heated  match-ups since the Grace Christian Academy joined the Harriman High School Blue Devils in district 3-A in 2009.
    When the Rams made the trip down to Harriman on Monday night to meet off on the baseball diamond, both teams brought all they had to pick up the district victory, but the Rams snuck away Papermaker Field with a 4-3 victory.

  • Moore leads Green Wave past...

    Midway senior Christian Moore tossed a complete-game two-hitter with eight strikeouts Monday evening in leading the Green Wave to a 7-0 victory over Tellico Plains.
    The victory was a big one for the Green Wave as they improved to 6-5 overall and 1-2 in District 3-A.
    Moore allowed only four base runners on the day. Besides the two hits, two other Bears reached safely on the evening thanks to a walk and hit batter. Tellico Plains, however, only got one of those runners past first base as Moore and the Green Wave defense were solid throughout.

  • Hornets sting soccer ’Cats, 4-0

    A three-goal barrage in the first eight minutes proved to spell doom for the Oliver Springs Bobcats Monday evening in a 4-0 loss to the Carter Hornets in soccer action at D.J. Brittan Field.
    “We came out a bit slow and Carter managed to capitalize and that hurt us,” Bobcat head coach Josh Pryor said after the game. “When you give up three goals in the first eight minutes, that will happen. After we got our feet under us, we kept improving and we have a lot of players getting their first bit of experience.”
