  • BOW workshop coming to...

    The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) will host the 2013 Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop June 7-9 in Crossville at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center. 

  • ‘Dogs nip ‘Cats, 5-3

    In a night of close district baseball games, the Oliver Springs Bobcats had the Wartburg Central Bulldogs on the ropes until the 'Dogs regained their bite and took the 5-3 win. 

    Wartburg got on the board first with a 1-0 top of the first and doubled the lead in the top of the second to 2-0. 

  • Tigers wallop Oakdale, 18-4

    The Rockwood Tigers had just eight hits Friday evening against Oakdale, but Jake Witter’s squad took advantage of 12 walks and four hit batters in rolling to an 18-4 victory over the Eagles at the Mike “Brillo” Miller Sports Complex.

  • Lady ‘Cats blast Wartburg in 4-A...

    Like a Ryan Seacrest Top 40 countdown, the hits just kept on coming for the Oliver Springs Lady Bobcats as they thumped the Wartburg Central Lady Bulldogs 15-0 Monday afternoon in a District 4-A contest. 

    Courtney Jones started off the game for the Lady 'Cats in splendid fashion fanning three straight batters. 

  • Lady Waves roll past Rockwood,...

    With their District 3-A showdown against Grace Christian Academy only 24 hours away, the Midway Lady Waves could have been caught looking ahead instead of on Monday’s task at hand against Rockwood. That wasn’t the case, however, as Megan Arndts’ squad needed only five innings to dispose of the Lady Tigers, 15-3.

  • Blue Devils hold off Oneida, 7-6


    Roane Newspapers

    It was a great night for baseball Thursday evening as Harriman picked up a 7-6 non-district win over the Indians from Oneida. 

  • Lady Waves bomb McMinn Central...

    The Midway Lady Green Waves have quietly put together an eight-game winning streak after a 13-1 non-district victory over McMinn Central Thursday at Midway.
    The win raises Midway’s record to 18-7-1 overall, but they are only 5-0 in the district.
    The Lady Waves will have to play five district games in the next two weeks. They will visit Rockwood, Greenback and Grace Christian. Two home games to be played are Tellico Plains and Grace Christian.
    Midway is scheduled to visit Grace Tuesday and host Tellico Plains Thursday.

  • Jackets split with Loudon

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets and Lady Jackets split their tennis matches with Loudon at Roane State on Thursday.
    Both squads entered the day with 2-2 records. Kingston’s boys ran their mark to 3-2 with a 9-0 victory over Loudon, but the Lady Jackets fell to 2-3 after dropping a narrow 5-4 decision.
    Thursday’s results are a little misleading as Loudon has only two players and that led to just three matches being played.
    Kingston won those matches as Brandon Griffis and Quint Gasque teamed up for an 8-2 victory over Dylan Shanks and Steven Davis in doubles.

  • Loudon rolls past OS in soccer,...

    Dominant is the only word to describe the Loudon Redskins performance Thursday afternoon against the Oliver Springs Bobcats with a 5-1 win.
    The Redskins managed to score three quick goals to take a 3-0 lead to the half, having 14 shots on goal and preventing the 'Cats from a single solitary shot.
    One bright spot for the 'Cats in the second half was Shawn Childress scoring a goal on a Jacob Pope assist to narrow the gap to 3-1.
    However, euphoria quickly turned to anguish when the 'Skins scored back-to-back corner kicks to pull out to the 5-1 win.
