    The streak started last week with a 3-1 victory over District 4-AA foe Anderson County and it continued Monday and Tuesday with district victories over Stone Memorial. The Jackets downed the Panthers 19-6 on Monday and 5-0 on Tuesday.

    The past two seasons have seen the Oliver Springs Lady Bobcats accomplish a lot on the softball diamond. The Lady 'Cats have won two district titles and have advanced to the TSSAA's Class A sectionals.

    That all changed Wednesday evening, however, as Oliver Springs cruised to an easy 8-1 victory over the Lady Mavericks.
