    By Ben Briley

    As I watched Game 6 of the Preds game Monday night, I had an epiphany of becoming what I’ve always hated: fairweather fans. I want to use this platform to finally admit that I, Ben Briley, am a fairweather Nashville Predators fan. I have not watched one regular season game, kept up with who got traded where, I couldn’t tell you who had the most goals this season, but when my hometown hockey team is in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I haven’t missed a game.

    By Jason Perry


    The Rockwood Tigers continued to roll in the District 3 Class A Baseball Tournament by beating Coalfield, 14-0, Tuesday night at Rockwood’s Brillo Miller Sports Complex.

    With the second game under their belt, the Tigers have run roughshod through their opposition.

    In two games, Rockwood has outscored opponents 36-4.

    Tuesday’s game started with the Tigers scoring 5 in the first two innings.

  • Devils go down swinging

    The Harriman Blue Devils went down swinging, coming back from seven runs down to tie the game in the sixth inning before losing, 14-11, to the Midway Green Wave in the second day of the District 3 Class A Baseball Tournament at Rockwood’s Brillo Miller Sports Complex.

    Down 11-4 in the bottom of the sixth, Harriman’s season was slipping away.

    The Devils had been able to put runs on the board, but hadn’t been able to slow the Green Wave.

    Harriman’s batters had been trying to figure out Midway starter Gabe Moore all game.

    By Jack Sims


    In a district tournament game played at Alcoa High School, the Kingston Lady Jackets grabbed a needed win over the Fulton Lady Falcons, 9-0. The game went into the seventh inning where a strange turn of events gave the Jackets a free out.

    In the latter innings, A Kingston batter got a hit that was dropped by the Fulton infield.

    The Kingston player while running for first powered over the Falcon first baseman knocking her down and subsequently out of the game due to injury.

  • OS goes down in high scoring...

    By Melissa Coley


    Tuesday night’s game between Sunbright and the Lady Bobcats looked more like an all-star homerun derby rather than a win or go home district tournament game as between the two teams there were six over the fence dingers with the Lady Tigers defeating OS by a final score of 13-10.

    Sunbright jumped out to an early lead as Ashlin Trent was the first to go deep as the Lady Tigers took an 8-1 lead. Oliver Springs struggled defensively as Desirae Davis and Kaitlyn Seeber took turns on the mound.

  • Midway runs out of gas

    The Midway Green Wave ran out of gas Wednesday evening, losing to Coalfield 7-5 in the elimination game of the District 3 Baseball Tournament at Rockwood’s Brillo Miller Sports Complex.

    “We ran out of gas,” Midway Coach Brent Johnson said. “We’re tired.

    “But I am proud of every single one of my players.

    “Every one of them played their hearts out and I have no regrets.”

    The early goings was a pitcher’s duel between Midway’s C.J. Huff and the Yellow Jackets’ Lance Byrd.

  • Tigers roar from behind for title

    The Rockwood Tigers had to fight from behind in order to beat Coalfield, 18-7, Wednesday night in the title game of the District 3 baseball tournament at Brillo Miller Sports Complex.

    Coalfield struck first.

    “You have to tip your hat to Coalfield,” Rockwood Coach Jake Witter said. “To be out in 81 degree weather to play hard as they did says something.

    “They could have just laid down, but they came out fighting and swinging the bats.”

    By Jack Sims


    In a do or die situation, the Kingston Lady Jackets traveled…again, to Alcoa to take on the Alcoa Lady Tornados…again, for the District Championship. This time they came home winners, the District Champions!
