  • Trouble at the plate sinks...

    A lackluster first inning and cold bats contributed to the Kingston Yellow Jackets losing 4-1 to the Oak Ridge Wildcats Thursday evening at Fort South West Point.

    Things didn’t go well for Kingston from the beginning.

    Starting pitcher Tyler Thurman didn’t look to have his best stuff and Oak Ridge took advantage.

    “Tyler struggled some, as far as finding the strike zone,” Kingston Coach Bruce Robinette said. “But when he makes a pitch and get a ground ball, you have to make that play.”

  • Lady Jackets keep rolling

    The Kingston Lady Jackets improved to 14-1 on the season after demolishing the Austin-East Lady Roadrunners, 17-0 and 16-1, in a double-header Thursday evening at Fort South West Point.

    In the opening game, Austin-East couldn’t muster a base runner due in part to the pitching from ace Emily Workman.

    With defense locked down, it didn’t take long for the lumber to follow.

    Kingston scored 15 runs in the bottom of the first inning with everyone in the Lady Jacket contributing to the score.

    Sports can be challenging to any student athlete that is trying to balance school work, athletics and a social life but imagine being a girl and doing those things all while playing on a boys baseball team.

    As they move up to coach pitch and player pitch that number often starts to dwindle down as girls typically switch over to fast pitch softball.

    Oliver Springs generated three runs thanks to Faythe Davis, Brooklyn Jones, and Kylie Richardson crossing the plate.

    “The season is a long process,” Oliver Springs Coach Matt Headden said. “We’re just watching things develop and see how things go.
