    NICKAJACK LAKE, CHATTANOOGA - Chris Shouse and Dakota Kirk’s day at the Student Anglers Federation’s Tennessee High School State Tournament didn’t go quite as planned.

    With weather being the biggest threat at the tournament, original ideas changed for many of the anglers in the 70-boat tournament.

    For Shouse and Kirk, the story was no different.

    JACKSBORO – Not even a month out of its final game, Campbell County is already back to the grind on the baseball diamond.

    “If anybody wants to challenge us on offense, I dare ‘em!”

    Campbell County head coach Justin Price put out the challenge last Thursday night, as the Cougars traveled to South Doyle for their spring scrimmage.

    However, it looks like it may not be a big order to meet during the 2013 campaign.

    Kristin Chapman only knows winning.

    For three straight years in high school, that was all she did, becoming Campbell County’s first three-time state champion.

    Following her A-Sun indoor championship earlier in the year, Chapman did the same during the outdoor season, taking first in the high jump for East Tennessee State University.

  • VanEtten named CCHS golf coach

    Campbell County High School has announced Will VanEtten as the new golf coach.

    VanEtten, who is a native of Campbell County, takes over the program after Jeremy Cox resigned his position in late 2012.

    For the new coach, it’s a chance to help the high school golfers grow.

    “I’m really excited about getting started,” VanEtten said. “Our first day of practice is July 8, so I’m definitely counting down the days on it.”

  • Column: Disciplined football in...

    Over the past week, I’ve spent time with the Campbell County High School football team, as they’ve been hard at work practicing.

    One thing I’ve noticed is that the team has a great deal of discipline.

    I really commend the Prices, as well as the other coaches, as they run a tight ship among the football program.

    Hanging from the fence on the far side of the practice field, banners, one of which spells out discipline, show the goals that Campbell County has for itself.

    Body language was a big one on Monday and Tuesday.

  • Column: It takes discipline to...

    "No discipline seems enjoyable at the times, but painful later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it." Hebrews 12:11

    As a baseball coach, something that I stress is having good plate discipline.

    With good plate discipline, you as a hitter can control the at bat - don't give up anything to the pitcher that would otherwise be a ball.
