  • Middle school baseball team wins...

    After sweeping Scott Co. in a rain drenched doubleheader on April 26, the Campbell County Middle School baseball team traveled to Whitley County, Ky. for a doubleheader on April 29.

    Whitley County School was like a field of dreams on a campus sprawling over rolling green pastures that included multiple well-groomed fields and courts. It was a beautiful day for baseball.

  • Lady Cougars get first win in...

    In an otherwise disappointing high school softball season, Campbell County found reason to celebrate Monday afternoon.

    Playing their final regular season series, the Lady Cougars swept a doubleheader from visiting Cumberland Gap High School to post their first two wins this year.

    Campbell County won the first game, 6-3, and then pitched a 12-0 shutout in the nightcap. The teams split a pair of games last season.

  • Campbell County track teams...

    Campbell County High School’s track and field teams swept a meet Thursday afternoon at William Blount.

  • Owls claim regional golf titles

    LaFollette Middle School’s golf teams did the same thing at regionals.

    Trevor Huckaby followed up his boy’s district individual title with a third-place regional finish Monday at Rarity Bay. The Owls scored nine strokes better (358) than runner-up Lake City. Huckaby shot 81 to win a playoff for the Owls. Teammate Caleb Baird shot 84; followed by Tyler Chumley, 93; and Weston Sharp, 100.

    Lenoir City’s Tanner Nelson earned medalist honors by shooting a 76. Jacksboro’s Jake Clowers was boy’s individual runner-up with an 80.

  • Cougars drop baseball games to...

    Whether it was on the road or at home, the Campbell County High School varsity baseball team just could not seem to catch a break last week in non-conference games against Fulton and Carter.

    An 8-4 loss Thursday afternoon to visiting Fulton spoiled an otherwise perfect Senior Day for the Cougars.

    Campbell County racked up nine hits but had trouble getting runners home. Justin Willoughby and Andrew Dykes each got a pair of singles, while Joe Goins, Lance Webber, Andy Hickman, Chris Hutson and Ryan Hutson each had a base hit.

  • Medley settles on Sewanee

    When she was a little girl, Clarissa Medley could usually be found mixing it up with the boys on the basketball court during recess time at the Christian Academy of Campbell County.

    She could not know it then, but that childhood experience would prepare her to realize a dream of playing college hoops.

    Medley, who is a senior at the J. Frank White Academy of Lincoln Memorial University, recently committed to play basketball next season at NCAA Division III Sewanee, the University of the South.

  • Braden remains perfect

    Freshman Dylan Braden may not be the best player on the Campbell County High School tennis team, but he is the only unbeaten one.

    Braden improved his singles record to a perfect 7-0 recently with wins against District 3-AAA frontrunner Knox Halls and Powell. He has alternated between the number five and six seeds. Braden’s victory against Powell was the only one of the day for the Cougars.

    He also accounted for one of Campbell County’s two wins during a team loss to Halls on April 13 at West Hills.

  • Cougars slip past Claiborne

    Campbell County High School’s baseball team broke a long dry spell Saturday afternoon with a 9-7 victory over visiting Claiborne County.

    Sophomore Cody Malicoat got his first varsity start for the Cougars, who matched last season’s win total (7). He pitched four innings and scattered seven hits, walked four batters, and struck out one.

    Justin Willoughby pitched in relief during the fifth inning. Rain forced an early end to the game. The Cougars committed two errors in the field.

    Offensively, Campbell County batters collected 10 hits

  • It’s a clean sweep for...

    The Jacksboro Middle School girls ran away with an 81-point victory Friday afternoon during a five-team track and field meet at Campbell County’s L. Hope Dossett Stadium.

    Meanwhile, the JMS boys edged out Lake City and LaFollette for first place at the same meet.

  • Chapman and Evans rank high at...
