McCarty with 10 points.

  • LMS basketball teams top Livesay...

    LaFollette Middle School’s varsity basketball teams opened the New Year with a bang Monday night by sweeping Livesay at Harrogate.

    Guards Kendra King and Chelsey Finkenbine led LaFollette in scoring with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

    Amber Guy, a seventh grade post player, had a great all-around game for the Lady Owls with seven steals, five rebounds, four blocked shots and two points.

  • Lady Eagles improve to 13-0 with...

    Victory was plentiful Tuesday night for Jacksboro Middle School’s varsity basketball teams, which made a varsity sweep of visiting Soldiers Memorial.

    The Lady Eagles stayed unbeaten (13-0) with a 50-10 rout of the SMMS girls. Post player Jamie Mynatt led a balanced attack for

    Jacksboro with 10 points. Whitney Sawyer chipped in nine points — all from downtown — followed by Whitney Williamson with eight, Megan Caudill seven, Olivia Brown six, Michaela Smith five, Krista Williams three, Hannah Owens and Shianna Marlow one each.

  • Middle school baseball tryouts...

    Middle school baseball tryouts will be held at 10 a.m. on Jan. 16 at Campbell County High School. Boys from both LaFollette and Jacksboro middle schools are invited to participate. The original date was Jan. 9, but tryouts have been delayed a week due to extremely cold weather.

    For more information, contact Coach Brad Collette at 562-8308.

  • Campbell County girls avenge...

    Campbell County High School’s girls avenged an earlier loss to district basketball rival Clinton with a 58-34 triumph on Jan. 5 at Clinton.

    Sophomore wing Kristin Chapman led the Lady Cougars (2-4 district, 8-7 overall) with a career-best 25 points, 11 rebounds and a blocked shot. She connected on 9 of 13 attempts from the field and 6 of 9 charity tosses.

    Jessica Moore, a senior guard who is signed to play for NCAA Division 1 Campbell University next season, complimented Chapman’s effort with 20 points, four assists and a steal.

  • Five Jellico football players...

    Five Jellico High School football players have been named to the All-District 4-A/AA Football Team this year following a vote of the league coaches. They include running back/linebacker Freedom Scott, running back/linebacker Ryan Morris, wide receiver/defensive back Nathan Overton, lineman/quarterback Devin Oakes and receiver Michael Douglas.

  • Memories of 2009: Looking back...

    From team championships to outstanding individual performances, Campbell County athletes had another memorable run in 2009.

    The year began with the CCHS boy’s basketball team advancing to play in the district tournament championship game for the first time since 1996 and ended with a returning player on the same team breaking a school scoring record that had stood for nearly 30 years.

    In-between there was lots and lots of action and drama. The following is a monthly review of the top sports happenings in Campbell County over the past year.

  • Lady Cougars play tough in loss

    Campbell County High School’s girls likely won’t face a better opponent this season than the McMinn Central basketball team they played last Wednesday in the championship game of Kessler’s Lady Spartans Classic at Webb School of Knoxville.

    McMinn Central, a state tournament regular, graduated all five starters from a team that won 34 consecutive games last year and made the Class AA state quarterfinals. However, the Chargerettes (12-1 overall) have recharged their batteries and are playing at a high level this season.

  • Blue Devils regain winning form

    After a poor showing at Lynn Camp’s Bowman Invitational and a disappointing district loss to Sunbright, the Jellico High School boy’s basketball team seems to have found its groove again.

    The Blue Devils (9-4 overall) advanced to the finals of the Midway Holiday Tournament this week with lopsided victories over Meigs County and Berean Christian. Class A Jellico was scheduled to face Class AAA Cocke County in the championship game Tuesday night.

  • Double whammy

    One streak stopped and another continued when Sunbright entertained Jellico last Tuesday in a pair of District 4-A high school basketball games.

    The Sunbright Lady Tigers snapped a 63-game district losing streak with a 60-46 win over Jellico, while the Tigers stayed perfect in the district with a 69-53 victory over the Blue Devils in the boy-s game.
