    Turkey Shoot

  • LaFollette's Stone Webb

    Austin Stone and Peyton Webb became a ‘Stone Webb’ for the LaFollette Owls on Thursday night.

    Playing against a tough Lakers team, the two put on a show on the defensive side of the ball. However, the Owls simply couldn’t find a rhythm on offense, slipping 26-0 against Lake City.

    “We played a lot better, excluding the first four minutes of the first quarter,” head coach Chris Honeycutt said. “We bowed our backs pretty good. Offense put us in some bad situations, but I think our defense did pretty good.”

  • Makin’ it look easy

    Sherlock Holmes once said, “Elementary, my dear Watson.”

    In other words, it’s pretty simple.

    At least that’s how the Campbell County elementary cross-country teams made it look on Monday evening at Cove Lake.

    “I think what a lot of people forget is that running is a natural thing,” head coach Anne Browning said. “It’s a very natural activity, especially for children. They don’t know at that point in their life that they have limits. They just run like their hair’s on fire.”

  • No rhythm for Cougars

    Oh snap!

    That’s probably what the Campbell County Cougars were thinking on Thursday night against Anderson County, as the Mavericks rolled to a 36-0 victory in the Powell-Clinch Classic.

    Seeing three snaps sail high, resulting in a loss of 36 yards and a safety, was hard enough. Throw in two sacks for 14 yards of loss, another fumble, an interception, and a turnover on fourth-and-inches and the Cougars simply couldn’t find their rhythm.

  • Holding all the cards

    It was pretty much a life long dream for Brandon Card.

    The 26-year old from Caryville made his name on the big stage of the Bassmaster Elite series this season, pulling down the most coveted award for rookie fisherman.

    On Aug. 25, he was named the 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series Rookie of the Year, an award Card says he’ll remember for a while.

  • Faulkner finishes first

    At the one-mile mark, one boy said, “Man, she’s way ahead.”

    Gracie Faulkner stayed there, too, taking the first place finish in the two mile run at Victor Ashe Park on Tuesday night.

    Faulkner, an eighth grader, finished the middle school cross-country meet with a personal record 13:46. The closest runner to her was 16 seconds back, as Rebecca Story of Christian Academy of Knoxville took second with 14:02.

  • Kitts shoots for Knoxville Open

    For most, they’ll never have the opportunity. To one, it was the best learning opportunity he could have.

    Greg “Pooh” Kitts of Campbell County recently tried his had in qualifying for the Web.com Knoxville Open to begin today. Kitts shot one under at Willow Creek Golf Course on Monday morning.

    “It was just good to be out there and walk with those players,” Kitts said. “That’s all it is: a good learning experience for when I turn pro and do what I want to do after I get out of college.”
