Each year before the King of the Mountain game between Stone Memorial and Cumberland County High Schools, a behind the scenes rivalry takes place. Each school and feeder school in Cumberland County is asked to bring in canned goods for Second Harvest and the total is weighed at half time. Last night at SMHS, the total came to 72,809 pounds of food brought in. Stone Memorial won the contest and earned $500 for their school. SMHS had a clean sweep of the competitions last night, as they also posted a 42-21 win over CCHS in football action.
The Stone Memorial High School Panthers posted a 42-21 home win over the Cumberland County High School Jets Friday night to win county bragging rights. CCHS scored first, but the Panthers answered with 28 straight points and defeated the Jets for the second season in a row. Corey Myers scored three touchdowns; Thomas Janow added two scores and Seth Seiber also scored for the Panthers. Tyler Norris and Dorian Holt had TD runs for the Jets and Jordan Buckner connected with Eric Telles on a touchdown pass for Cumberland County's other score.
Friday, October 12th, SMHS will host Alcoa and CCHS will entertain Coffee County.

Health providers are scrambling to notify patients in nearly two dozen states that the routine steroid injections they received for back pain in recent months may have been contaminated with a deadly fungal meningitis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that so far, 35 people in six states, including Tennessee, have contracted fungal meningitis and 5 of them have died.
Enrollment at Tennessee Board of Regents colleges has dropped an average of 4.4 percent this fall. The figure is averaged over the six universities and 13 colleges under Regents supervision. The state's other public university system, the University of Tennessee, has not yet released enrollment figures. At MTSU, the drop was 4.5 percent among full time students. Officials say steadily rising tuition costs are a factor. TBR Chancellor John Morgan said it isn't yet clear whether the declines will trigger additional cuts in state funding.
