  • Jellico can’t keep pace with ’...

    For a while Friday night, it looked as though Jellico High School’s football team might be able to give rival Williamsburg, Ky. a run for its money this year.
    The Blue Devils had rallied from a 20-7 deficit with a touchdown and successful point-after kick with a little over 4 1/2 minutes left in the first half.
    But the Yellowjackets got stronger as the game wore on and continued to put points on the scoreboard.
    Williamsburg ended up routing the host Blue Devils, 68-22, scoring 30 more points than it did in last year’s game.

  • Cougars fall 34-0 at Loudon

    Campbell County High School’s season football opener Friday night looked like a rerun of 2009.
    The Cougars fell 34-0 at Loudon after losing 33-0 to the Redskins a year ago.

  • Hiwassee signs former CCHS star

    With a .450 batting average, 41 RBI, 3 home runs and all-district honors last season, Justin Willoughby was one of the better prospects in the Class of 2010.

    But no tangible offers came his way until Hiwassee College offered the recent Campbell County High School graduate a chance to further his education and baseball career.

    Willoughby, who started at first base and also pitched for the Cougars, recently signed with Hiwassee and plans to major in physical therapy.
