  • Jellico’s Tiller to play softball for Union College

    Jellico High School senior Noel Tiller has decided to continue her softball career and education at Union College, Ky.

    Tiller made the announcement last week during a signing ceremony at JHS. She plans to pursue a degree in physical therapy.

    “I’m really excited about college,” said Tiller, who hit .385 this year and was one of the top pitchers in District 4-A.

    Earlier, Tiller was leaning toward the University of the Cumberlands. However, after a campus visit and tryout, she was offered a spot on Union’s team.

  • Changing Lanes: The story continues

    Many of the players that played for Jim Lane’s championship teams the previous three years played on the CCHS Middle School Baseball team this season.

    This significantly reduced the number of players Lane would have on his new 13-14 year old baseball team.

    After much patience and deliberation Lane and long-time sponsor Dave Dunaway moved their team to a newly revised Senior League, which includes teams from LaFollette, Jellico and Harrogate.
