  • Oneida snaps Jacksboro's...

    Oneida had more options than the Sears catalog.

    Running a single-wing offense, the Indians found a way to snap the Eagles’ five-game winning streak last Thursday night in the battle of unbeatens.

    Oneida compiled 400 yards across the ground on 56 carries, while using 10 different runners en route to a 34-6 victory.

  • Egg Bowl set for Thursday night

    This one shouldn’t go over easy.

    The 12th annual Egg Bowl is set for tonight (Thursday) as the LaFollette Owls travel to Jacksboro Middle School to take on the Eagles in what some are calling the “biggest game of the year.”

    The battle is set for 7 p.m., and it is already boiling up to be a good one.

    Since the beginning of the season, the Owls have scrambled from an 0-3 record at the start. Winning three straight, LaFollette will come into this game totally even at 3-3.

  • Taylor finishes 35th in state...

    Campbell County High School junior Lindsay Taylor competed in the Class AAA state golf tournament on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 25-26 in Manchester.

    The Willowbrook Golf Course wasn’t kind to Taylor on the first day of competition, as Barren’s Triangle got the best of the first-time state golfer. Taylor finished the day with an 18-over-par 90.

    On Tuesday, however, she bounced back, combining her two-day total for an overall 179 score. That score was good enough for 35th place out of the 56 competitors.

  • Taylor competes in state tourney

    In old days, ships were warned about the dangers of entering The Bermuda Triangle.

    That same warning should go out for golfers entering the Barrens Triangle.

    The seven-hole “natural triangle” at the Willowbrook Golf Course in Manchester became one of the hardest stretches for the high school competitors.

    Campbell County’s Lindsay Taylor was in that mix. Withing that stretch, Taylor found an eight-over-par performance.

  • Thirty-two minutes of dominance

    “Take the fight to the Senators for 32 minutes and leave it there.”

    That’s the last of the maxims for the LaFollette Owls, and it’s one they followed to a tee last Thursday night.

    Fresh off their 44-0 victory over Horace Maynard, the Owls were looking for their second of the season. They found it, as they took the fight to the Senators of Norris, 34-6 at LaFollette Middle School.

  • Student-athletes excited about...

    “And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” ~Luke 23:14

    Although the Oct. 3 Fields of Faith is set to be on the football field, the Campbell County student-athletes are already working to fill the stadium to capacity. With an expectancy of well over 1,000 people, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is already excited.

  • Clinton spoils homecoming hopes

    For the first time since Oct. 1, 2010, the Clinton Dragons were able to line up in the victory formation on a Friday night.

    Clinton snapped their 17-game losing streak, coming to L. Hope Dossett Stadium to put a damper on homecoming festivities.

    “Streaks are made to be broken,” Campbell County head coach Justin Price said. “You never want to be on the end that causes that. My hat’s off to Clinton. It just wasn’t our night, and we weren’t ready to play. I take responsibility for that.”
