MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — The bottom of the order kept finding a way to get on base, and the top of the order did its job to drive those runners home.

Boyd-Buchanan has Buzz, Baylor has the lucky charm of Eddie Etter and McCallie has its on-the-bus name game.

Signal Mountain goalkeeper Adam Pickett recently signed scholarship papers to continue his soccer career at Tennessee Wesleyan College in Athens.

The Boyd-Buchanan soccer coaches weren't sure if the Buccaneers would be able to shut out East Ridge, their opponent in the Region 3-A/AA semifinals Tuesday. But they knew if they could slow them down, they'd have a solid chance to advance to Thursday's region final.

Baseball for decades at Tyner was an afterthought, even a walkover for district opponents.

If Skyler Anderson pitches a strikeout, OK. If he gets the out another way, that's just as good.

Matti Sue Nafie and Emily Wilt attributed last season's loss in the finals of the Region 3-A/AA individual doubles tournament to nerves. Monday afternoon, a couple of pre-match "selfies" and a calmer demeanor seemed to eliminate any chance of a repeat.
