  • After losing a brother, freshman WR Metrius Fleming gains a family at Tech
    August 23, 2019
    Family is important. Sometimes it gets taken for granted. Sometimes things can get heated. But at the end of the day, family is always there to care and support. But family doesn’t necessarily have to be imprinted in the DNA, born of the same flesh and blood. Family can be gained through shared experiences, through a common bond, through fighting through the trenches of the field with their fellow teammates. It’s not uncommon for sports to lend itself to creating a family atmosphere. And, in the case of Tennessee Tech freshman wide receiver Metrius Fleming, a new set of family members to replace the one he lost.

  • DePolo named head coach of Tech softball program
    August 19, 2019
    COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Michelle DePolo has found ways to excel. At Army West Point for nine seasons as head coach and two before that as an assistant, she wasn’t dealing with the typical Division I program in the recruiting spectrum as her focus was on student-athletes that were coming through the United States Military Academy. But the Black Knights found ways to win. In her first season as the head coach at Army in 2010, the team went from a projected next-to-last finish to a Patriot League regular-season championship, the program’s first in nearly 20 years. Now DePolo is getting a new opportunity as she was selected on Tuesday, becoming Tennessee Tech softball’s fifth head coach as the program enters its 35th year, following Robert Swindell (1986-1987), Bobby Holloway (1988-1998), Tory Acheson (1999-2012) and Bonnie Graham (2013-2019).

    COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – As Tennessee Tech football wrapped up the annual Gathering of Eagles event, the last official scrimmage of fall camp, the countdown to August 31 is now officially on. Saturday wasn't the greatest showcase of the Golden Eagles' ability as the fatigue of camp, the sweltering summer heat and a busy day of events played their roles, but it wasn't the worst effort either as there were plenty of highlights. That said, there were several procedural penalties that cropped up and stalled drives as the Tech offense was handcuffed a few times from putting more points on the board. The Golden Eagle defense also played its part, creating a goal-line stop and forcing a couple of big turnovers to keep the offense at bay.

It did take a full offensive rotation for the Golden Eagle attackers to put points on the unofficial scoreboard, but when quarterback Bailey Fisher and the first-team offense got going, the unit looked solid. The first score came as David Gist III was able to evade the top-line defense and break loose for a 72-yard touchdown run, the longest offensive play of the night.
