  • Owls add state crowns to...

    Perfection came to fruition last week for LaFollette Middle School’s golf teams.

    The Owls and Lady Owls completed a three-tournament sweep by winning Tennessee Middle School Golf Association championships Thursday at The Greens at Deerfield. Seventeen schools from two regions had representatives playing in the 18-hole tournament, either as a member of one of the four competing teams or as individuals.

  • Sectionals begin today for high...

    Fifteen track and field athletes from Campbell County High School have qualified to participate in the 1-AAA Sectional Championships this week.

    For the first time, events will be held at two different sites. Morristown West will host the girl’s and boy’s 3,200-meter races this afternoon (Thurs.). The remainder of the meet will be held on Friday at Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett, with field events scheduled to begin at noon. The top four athletes in each event will qualify for state.

  • Cougars get another win over...

    Campbell County High School’s varsity baseball team had to fight through adversity this season, but the Cougars managed to get one more win than they got last season.

    Three of Campbell County’s eight victories came against longtime Knoxville baseball power Central. The Cougars’ most recent triumph over the Bobcats came last Wednesday in a district play-in game. Campbell County won that game, 12-5.

  • 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.

    The Lady Cougars piled up 240 points in their victory. Host William Blount finished a distant second with 155, followed by McMinn Central with 92, Tellico Plains with 46 and Sequoyah with 45.

  • 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.
