  • Jellico nets quality win at Grace

    Thomas Ridenour has led a mostly quiet life the last three years while playing in the shadows of some of his more flamboyant teammates.

    This season, however, the 6-foot-4 senior forward has been making plenty of noise for the Jellico High School boy’s basketball team, which has aspirations of competing for a state championship.

  • Senior forward picking up steam for Campbell County

    More minutes from Sean Chapman could mean more victories for the Campbell County High School varsity boy’s basketball team.

    The Cougars (5-4 district, 9-9 overall) managed to win back-to-back games last weekend with their 6-foot-8 senior forward in foul trouble. Despite his limited playing time, Chapman’s production has gone through the roof, both offensively and defensively, for a team trying to get back to the District 3-AAA championship game.

  • CCHS girls net fourth win in past five games

    So far, the year 2010 has proven to be a good one for the Campbell County High School girl’s basketball team.

    After their 67-39 dismantling of Karns last weekend, the Lady Cougars had won four of their last five games since being beaten by McMinn Central in the championship game of Kessler’s Lady Spartans Holiday Classic.

    An added bonus was that all four victories came against District 3-AAA competition.

  • Malicoat scores 30 points in loss at Powell

    Cody Malicoat looked more like his old self on Tuesday night at Powell.

    The 6-foot-4 Campbell County High School forward posted team-highs in scoring (30 pts.), rebounding (8) and steals (5) during a 73-66 district loss to the Panthers. He even dished out a couple of assists.

    Malicoat, the Cougars’ leading scorer this season, has been trying to get back to full strength since injuring an ankle earlier this year. Judging from his shooting percentage Tuesday night (10 of 21 from the field), it appears that he is almost there.

  • Lady Eagles keep hope alive for championship

    Jacksboro’s girls moved a step closer to their ultimate objective Monday night with a 46-17 victory over Horace Maynard in the quarterfinals of the Tennessee Middle School Area 2 North Basketball Tournament at Anderson County.

    Whitney Williamson scored 12 points to pace the Lady Eagles, who improved their record to 17-1 overall. Jacksboro advanced to Thursday’s semifinal round to face Clinton, a 32-28 quarterfinal winner over LaFollette. Thursday’s game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m.

  • Jellico boys drop District 4-A basketball game to Oliver Springs

    District 4-A boy’s basketball heavyweights Jellico and Oliver Springs went head-to-head Friday night to try and keep pace with Sunbright in the regular season championship race.

    The Blue Devils (10-7) picked up a big road win earlier this season at Oliver Springs but weren’t as fortunate this time around. The Bobcats (11-7 overall) avenged their earlier two-point loss with a 67-58 win on Jellico’s home court. Lucas Tauer paced Oliver Springs with 18 points for Oliver Springs. Wesley Rather chipped in 15 points and Rue Eskridge 13 for the Bobcats.
