Rhea County

EVENSVILLE, Tenn. — Jake Williams is in the Rhea County record book.

EVENSVILLE, Tenn. -- Aleksander Hatlem filled out a mountain of forms during his foreign-exchange-student process.

The next step is a big one, because the step after that will be a Tennessee state football championship game.

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. — Rhea County jumped way ahead and held off Oak Ridge, 35-21, in a quarterfinal battle of Class 5A unbeatens Friday night.

Notre Dame's Class 3A TSSAA playoff game Friday has been moved off campus and will be played at Finley Stadium.

The last two Marches, Central boys' basketball coach Rick Rogers has taken his players — dressed alike in their warmup suits — to Murfreesboro to watch the TSSAA state tournament. But in March 2015, the Purple Pounders hope to be doing more than just watching.
