  • Moore leads bittersweet CCHS victory over Knox Halls

    Campbell County High School’s girls picked up a bittersweet victory Tuesday night at Knox Halls.

    The Lady Cougars won the game, 57-55, on Jessica Moore’s free throws with 8.2 seconds left.

    However, the triumph was overshadowed by an injury to sophomore point guard Courtney Morris, who was hurt halfway through the second quarter. Morris went down with a possible lower back injury at the 4:28 mark and had to be carted off on a stretcher. Campbell County was leading 14-13 at the time.

  • Cougars bounce AC, 61-59

    Nick Litton may have found himself a new position on the basketball court.

    The 6-foot-3 Campbell County High School sophomore answered the call of duty Monday night when asked to guard Anderson County’s top gun, Tyler Smith.

    Litton held Smith to only four points in the second half of the Cougars’ 61-59 victory, but he did much more than shadow the Mavericks’ star player. Litton finished with 13 points to provide valuable offensive punch for a team that has often struggled to score from the perimeter this season.

  • Ridenour leads Jellico past Oneida, 68-55

    Senior forward Thomas Ridenour scored 17 of his game-high 25 points, including a trio of 3-pointers, in the second half Thursday night to lead the Jellico High School boy’s basketball team to a 68-55 win over visiting District 4-A rival Oneida.

    The victory allowed the Blue Devils (8-3 district, 14-8 overall) to avenge a 61-56 overtime loss at Oneida on Jan. 23.

  • Lady Eagles finish second in Area 2 North

    After splitting a pair of regular season games, Jacksboro and Norris battled for supremacy in the girl’s championship game of the Area 2 North Basketball Tournament last Wednesday (Feb. 3) at Anderson County High School.

    Norris (15-2 overall) captured the title with a 36-30 win. Tournament MVP Savanna Cummings led all scorers with 18 points, 10 of which she scored during the decisive fourth quarter for the Lady Senators.

    Post player Jamie Mynatt scored 17 points to pace the Lady Eagles (18-2 overall).

  • CCHS girls get Morris back for win at AC

    It’s been a very good week for the Campbell County High School girl’s basketball team.

    Aside from a 61-37 loss to District 3-AAA frontrunner Oak Ridge, the Lady Cougars were able to sweep rival Anderson County after getting their point guard back off the disabled list.

    Courtney Morris, a sophomore, suffered a scary lower back injury — the equivalent of a football stinger —  on Feb. 2 during a game at Knox Halls. She was taken to the hospital after her lower extremities went numb.

  • Snow days bring changes to school schedule

    Campbell County students may have been celebrating the recent run of snow days. But the unscheduled days off have come at a price they will likely not be happy to pay.

    Thanks to snow, ice and treacherous road conditions the first week of June will see area pupils heading to the classroom rather than the swimming pool.

    In order for county schools to meet the 180 day instruction requirement set forth by the state, the school year will be forced to be extended by one week, according to Dr. Michael Martin, director of schools.

  • Commission to stay at 15; justice center debate resumes

    With the March 1 deadline looming as to how many commissioners will comprise the commission, the group took one more stab at the issue.

    Citing increased productivity and cost savings as his reasons for proposing action to reduce the number of commissioners from three to two per district at last Monday’s workshop, Commissioner Johnny Joe Dower followed through with a motion to do just that at Tuesday’s commission meeting.
