  • Faulkner finishes first

    At the one-mile mark, one boy said, “Man, she’s way ahead.”

    Gracie Faulkner stayed there, too, taking the first place finish in the two mile run at Victor Ashe Park on Tuesday night.

    Faulkner, an eighth grader, finished the middle school cross-country meet with a personal record 13:46. The closest runner to her was 16 seconds back, as Rebecca Story of Christian Academy of Knoxville took second with 14:02.

  • Kitts shoots for Knoxville Open

    For most, they’ll never have the opportunity. To one, it was the best learning opportunity he could have.

    Greg “Pooh” Kitts of Campbell County recently tried his had in qualifying for the Web.com Knoxville Open to begin today. Kitts shot one under at Willow Creek Golf Course on Monday morning.

    “It was just good to be out there and walk with those players,” Kitts said. “That’s all it is: a good learning experience for when I turn pro and do what I want to do after I get out of college.”

  • ‘Payday’s Coming’

    All Campbell County could do was watch as the 47-yard field goal by JJ Jerman sailed through the uprights, putting the game out of reach.

    The only thing more painful was hearing the “Seymour Eagles!” chant as the buzzer sounded.

    Jerman made his presence known in the first game of the season in L. Hope Dossett Stadium. With kicks of 30, 42, and 47, he proved to be the difference maker. He also added two extra points to his credentials, as the Cougars fell 30-20.

    However, for the Cougars, they know their hard work is going to pay off soon.

  • Puttin’ on steam

     Two of General Robert Neyland’s maxims were “Play for and make the breaks, and when one comes your way – Score! If at first the game or the breaks go against you, don’t let up…put on more steam.”

                The Campbell County Cougars could not have put those words into better use than they did Thursday night in the stadium named after Neyland himself.

  • Jellico playing back to basics...

                A perfect step, good hand placement, and a good snap are crucial.

                In football, it’s the little things that can make the difference between a win and a loss. For Jellico, it’s become their focus.

  • Eagles looking to better season
