  • Soul Jumpers showcase skills

    For years, the jump rope has been an essential training tool for sports such as boxing. Now, jumping rope is becoming a sport all unto itself.

    Jacksboro Elementary’s Soul Jumpers showcased their athletic prowess Friday during a demanding tour of three Campbell County schools. The group began their day with an 8:30 a.m. performance at Caryville Elementary. From there, the Soul Jumpers visited Elk Valley Elementary at 10:30 a.m. and Jacksboro Middle at 1 p.m.

  • Cougars blank South-Doyle 13-0...

    If last week’s scrimmage at South-Doyle was any indication, the Campbell County High School football team could be in for a breakthrough season this fall. The Cougars blanked the Cherokees 13-0 with a smothering defense.

    Campbell County’s offense wasn’t half bad, either. Rising sophomore quarterback Ethan Jeffers completed 10 of 14 passes for 161 yards and touchdowns of 20 and five yards to Ethan Simpson.

  • Eagles fare well at Meet of...

    Several Jacksboro Middle School track and field athletes competed in the Meet of Champions on May 8 at the Hardin Valley Academy.

    Representing the Lady Eagle sprinters, Jessica Stanley competed in the 100-meter dash and finished 6th. In distance races, Kelsey Williams ran the 3,200 and finished 6th. Gracie Faulkner ran the 1,600 and 800 and finished 2nd in both races. Regan Lindsay, Bethany McKamey, Lexi Gross and Kelsey Williams finished 6th in the 4x800-meter relay. Zoie Mefford represented the JMS girls in field events with 2nd place in shot put.

  • Morris signs with Alice Lloyd...

    Courtney Morris, a two-time All-District 3-AAA point guard for Campbell County High School, announced Thursday that she will attend Alice Lloyd College in Kentucky this fall.

    Morris averaged 12.7 points, three assists and three steals per game while leading the Lady Cougars to district regular season and tournament championships. An honors student with a 3.4 grade point average, she plans to major in nursing at Alice Lloyd.

    Family, friends and coaches gathered Thursday afternoon in the CCHS library as Morris signed her letter-of-intent.

  • The golden girls

    One of the most successful two-person championship runs in Campbell County High School track and field history picked up more steam Friday during the Section 1-AAA Championships at Johnson City.

    Seniors Kristin Chapman and Shayla Goins combined for three section titles and all 48 points for the Lady Cougars, who finished 5th in a field of 28 teams. Both girls will represent their school at the state meet next week at Murfreesboro. 

  • CCHS athletes shine at Metro 8...

    State champion high jumper Kristin Chapman tuned up for this week’s sectionals by setting a meet record Friday afternoon during the Metro 8 Track and Field Championships at Oak Ridge.

    Chapman shattered the previous record by four inches with a 5-8 jump that matched her personal record. She also won the 300-meter hurdles and met the sectional qualifying standard with a time of 47.45 seconds in her first attempt this season.

    Chapman placed 4th in triple jump and ran the anchor leg of the 4th place and sectional qualifying 4x400-meter relay.

  • OR takes out Lady Cougars, 13-3

    Oak Ridge has now become Campbell County’s biggest stumbling block in the District 3-AAA Softball Tournament.

    For the second consecutive season, the Lady Wildcats eliminated the Lady Cougars in five innings.

    Last year, Campbell County was shut out 10-0. This season was not much different, as eighth-seeded Oak Ridge beat ninth-seeded Campbell County 13-3 Friday afternoon in an elimination game.

    The Lady Wildcats were then eliminated 10-0 by Anderson County.

  • Cougars stumble in district...

    A week after Campbell County’s senior class posted their first ever baseball victory over league rival Clinton, those same seniors had their high school careers ended by the Dragons.

    Clinton defeated the Cougars 16-6 in a District 3-AAA Tournament elimination game Saturday afternoon at Knox Halls.

    Aaron Chapman was tagged with the loss for the Cougars (12-24 overall). Marsh picked up the win for the Dragons (20-13 overall). Campbell County closed out the month of April with a 13-7 victory over Clinton at the Knoxville West Tournament.
