  • Hard work pays off

    By Emily McFee


    Midway High School has gone 3-0 to start off the 2018 season.

    It has been a number of years since this has happened and they are certainly starting a ruckus with this record so far.

    Not only have they started off strong but one of the teams they beat was Rockwood, who they have not beaten for 13 years.

    Upon talking to a few team members and Coach Ryen Minton, they have explained what it’s like to have this new record.

  • Lady Blue Devils’ rally not...

    By Melissa Coley


    The fans got their money’s worth Tuesday evening as Wartburg traveled to Harriman to take on the Lady Devils in a high school volleyball matchup.

    It took five games to decide the winner as the Lady Dogs took the first two matches (25-18 & 25-21) but Harriman rallied to take the next two (25-19 & 25-19) with game five going down to the wire and Wartburg making a late game comeback to win 19-17, taking three out of five to get the win.

  • Midway won’t have to range far

    The Midway Green Wave return home tonight after a 40-7 drubbing of Oakdale last Friday. Midway will host Unaka in a bid to go 4-0 this season.

  • Devils look for rebound with...

    The Harriman Blue Devils will return to the friendly confines of Wallace Black Stadium tonight as they take on the undefeated Oneida Indians. Harriman will be looking to get back on track after its 2-0 season start was stalled last Friday night in a loss to Coalfield.

  • Bobcats stay on road this week

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats continue their Road Warrior impersonation as they travel to Northview Academy tonight. The Bobcats will be looking to go 3-0 this season against a Northview (1-2) team that has faltered in its last two games after losing to Sullivan North and Gatlinburg-Pittman.

  • Don’t judge Pruitt on just one...

    By Ben Briley

    Not only is it his first game this season, it’s Head Coach Jeremy Pruitt’s first game ever following his first offseason ever. Let’s cut him some slack.

    Tennessee drops the opening game of the season to West Virginia 40-14 in mediocre fashion.

    I personally expected the Vols to shut down Will Grier’s powerful offense after halftime, but I was proven wrong.

    First off, West Virginia is a playoff-caliber team.

  • Tigers and Jackets renew rivalry

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets will be looking to get a win this Friday night as they host Roane County rival Rockwood. Rockwood is coming off a 14-6 win against Tellico last week while Kingston is reeling after losing to Austin-East 36-14. Although the game won’t have a bearing on either team’s district standings, it will still be for bragging rights in the county.

  • Amazing, anyway you cut it

    Any way you look at it, a 49-0 win streak is pretty amazing.

    What makes it more remarkable is the fact this streak belongs to young kids playing for the Harriman Cutters (10-11 year-old) youth league football team.

    They’ll be going for 50 wins in a row Saturday afternoon when they play on the road in Spring City.

    This is a streak five years in the making starting in 2013 when the youngsters won the final two games of the season to finish 9-2.
