  • CCHS runners compete at Nashville

    Although the weather wasn’t hospitable, the runners were persistent Saturday during the 44th annual A.F. Bridges Cross-Country Invitational at Nashville’s Iroquois Steeplechase course.

    Torrential rainstorms forced postponement of the high school race for five hours, and the course was shorted from 3.1miles to 2.2 because of flooding.

    But once the rain stopped, the 17 teams that waited out the weather were rewarded to a very competitive race.

  • Outmanned Cougars dominated by Dragons

    An open date couldn’t have come at a better time for the Campbell County High School varsity football team.

    The Cougars, still missing a few players because of injuries and the flu, were manhandled 40-0 Friday night by an undefeated Clinton team. Campbell County now has a week to heal and regroup before hosting Knoxville Central on Oct. 9 for homecoming.

    “These next couple of games are real important,” said Cougars’ coach Dewayne Wells.

  • County middle school teams fall to top competition

    All three middle school football teams from Campbell County took it on the chin Thursday night while playing against some of the best competition in East Tennessee.

    LaFollette was beaten 48-20 by defending East Tennessee champion Clinton.

    Chris Stone scored all three touchdowns for the Owls on a kickoff return, sweep and long pass play from Ethan Jeffers.

    Josh Henry ran for LaFollette’s two-point conversion.

  • Harriman defeats Jellico in battle of Blue Devils

    After opening the high school football season with four straight games decided by seven points or less, the Harriman Blue Devils finally had a breather Monday night as Travis Tapp’s squad picked up a 33-0 victory over the Jellico Blue Devils at Wallace Black Field.

    Harriman (4-1 overall) was dominant on both sides of the ball Monday, amassing 404 yards of total offense on 61 plays while allowing Jellico (1-4 overall) only 46 total yards. About the only thing that stood between Harriman and a perfect night was three fumbles inside Jellico territory.

  • Medical foundation will continue to oversee sale dollars

    In a court battle that has persisted for 10 years, seen lawyers replaced and had filings entered on the heels of each other, another opinion has been handed down. This one came last week from the state court of appeals.

    For the LaFollette Medical Foundation the decision means it will retain control of the financial proceeds from the sale of the former LaFollette Medical Center. At one time those proceeds were estimated to be around $9 million. Under the rules governing the foundation, the money is to be used for the best interest of the public and its health.
