Clarksville, TN – It was déjà vu all over again, September 15th at Swan Lake Golf Course, with the Rossview High School’s girls golf team and Clarksville High’s boys golf team repeating as the District 10-AAA tournament title winners.
The Lady Hawks would edge the Clarksville High Lady Wildcats by three shots (149-152) to not only win the tournament title, but remain undefeated on the season.
“I was having to be a scorer on another hole, so I wasn’t with my girls and I was really stressing out,” Rossview head coach Phil Burkhart said. “I didn’t exactly know we stood, but I heard it was pretty much even, but we had a stroke or two more lead than I thought.
Clarksville, TN – Rossview High School’s running attack went through, around and over the Stratford High School defense, Friday, September 12th, with the Hawks totaling 505 yards on the ground in a 55-12 blowout victory over the Spartans.
Isaiah Johnson would lead the way for Rossview (2-2), with the senior running back finished the night with 251 yards on 18 carries – including touchdown runs of 43- and 4-yards.
In fact, his 43-yard run for a score — for a 6-0 lead — was the first touchdown of the night for the Hawks, which came on their second drive of the game after the defense had forced a punt by the Spartans from their eight-yard line.
Clarksville, TN – Rossview High School’s outside hitter Jessica Mattson collected 16 kills in just three games, September 11th, as she led the Lady Hawks to a 3-0 victory over Northwest High School, by scores of 25-13, 25-23, 25-16.
Mattson’s 16 kills were more than half of the total kills recorded by Rossview (13-10, 6-2 District 10-AAA) in the match with Northwest’s blocking at the net struggling to contain the Lady Hawks outsides.
“Most of the game is played out of systems anyway in high school volleyball, so you have to put strong hitters on the outside to be able to take most of the swings,” Rossview first-year coach Krystal Weber said. “But we’re also been working on getting that middle (attack) established, so that it will help to open up the hit on the outside for us.
Clarksville, TN – Scoring touchdowns on five of its six first-half possessions, September 5th, Rossview High School not only picked up its first win of the season; but also retained the Warfield Shield with a 48-3 District 10-AAA victory over Clarksville High School.
It wouldn’t take long for the Hawks (1-2, 1-0 District 10-AAA) to start their night’s scoring, as they took their opening possession right down the field, 80 yards on six plays, with Isaiah Johnson going in from five yards out to put Rossview up 6-0 just 1:44 into the game – after the extra-point attempt was no good after hitting the upright.
Clarksville, TN – The opening day of Riverfest was summed up in one word, hot! I was sweating from the moment I arrived at 5:00pm, until I left at 11:00pm. A chance of rain had been forecast but thankfully did not appear, or it would’ve made it even more humid.
Crowds begin trickling in shortly before the 5:00pm opening, and things picked up steadily through the evening. Turnout was lower than expected but that was likely due to people avoiding the heat, and the forecast showers.
Clarksville, TN – Rossview High School’s volleyball team almost saw a 2-0 lead disappear, Thursday, September 4th in its District 10-AAA matchup versus Northeast High School, but the Lady Hawks rallied to score eight of the final nine points in game four to come away with a 3-1 win be scores of 25-16, 25-19, 15-25 and 25-23.
After winning the first two games comfortably, the Lady Hawks (7-5, 4-2 District 10-AAA) saw the Lady Eagles come out quickly in the third game and score the first four points to never trail in the contest that they won by 10 points, 25-15.
With two weeks of play done, parents and fans are beginning to get an idea of their teams strengths and weaknesses. While some are excited by their team’s proficiency so far, others are hoping they have yet to see the best of what their team has to offer.
Clarksville, TN – Clarksville High School’s football team only trailed Ravenwood High School by six points at halftime, August 29th at Hilda J. Richardson Athletic Field, but couldn’t get anything going after intermission in a 41-7 loss to the Raptors.
The Wildcats (1-1) looked like they had the momentum heading into the second half, despite trailing 13-7, after holding Ravenwood to no points from inside its own 10-yard line in the final seconds of the opening half.
But the Raptors (2-0) held the Wildcats to a three-and-out on its first possession of the second half, while taking its first of the third quarter into the end zone to go up two scores and they never looked back.
Nashville, TN – Rossview High School’s football team came out like a ball of fire Friday night, August 22nd, in getting out to a quick 14-0 lead, but turnovers help Hillsboro High School to score 34 straight unanswered points against the Hawks in posting a 41-27 come-from-behind victory.
The Hawks (0-1) scored the first two times they had the ball, needing only 13 yards on their first drive to find the end zone after getting a hand on a punt deep in the Burros end of the field and then recovering a Hillsboro (1-0) fumble near midfield to start their second drive.
