  • Anderson girls hand Campbell...

    Leave it to Anderson County to find a chink in Campbell County’s armor.

    The host Lady Mavericks spoiled a perfect league record for the Lady Cougars’ district championship basketball team with a 57-47 upset victory Friday night.

    Anderson County’s Cayla Oglesby led all scorers with 20 points, including nine of 11 free throw shooting in the fourth quarter. Kaitlyn Cupples and Maggie Smith chipped in 15 and 12 points, respectively, for the Lady Mavericks.

  • Freshmen continue to dominate...

    On Monday night, Feb. 6, the Campbell County High School freshman girls and boys visited Anderson County for a basketball rematch. The Lady Cougars wasted no time taking care of AC, 61-45. In the nightcap, the freshman boys followed suit.

  • JMS boys, LMS girls eliminated...

    Basketball teams from Jacksboro and LaFollette middle schools ended their seasons last week with losses in their respective consolation games at the Area 2 Tournament in Oak Ridge.

    Only the top three finishers in each area tournament qualified for East Tennessee sectional play. That meant that teams that did not play for an area championship or win their area consolation game did not advance to sectionals.

  • Middle school players celebrate...

    In celebration of National Signing Day, members of the Campbell County High School football coaching staff visited Jacksboro and LaFollette middle school athletes last week.

    The purpose of the visit was to reach out to the middle school athletes and let them know that they are vital to the building of the CCHS football program.

    Each middle school player got to participate by having their own “signing day” photo made with the coaches while wearing an authentic CCHS football jersey and cap.

  • Cougars make Wildcats work for...

    With unpleasant memories of a 35-point loss earlier this season at Oak Ridge, players on the Campbell County High School varsity boys’ basketball team were bound and determined not to let it happen again.

    The host Cougars (6-6 district, 14-8 overall) took the Wildcats (11-2 district, 19-3 overall) to the wire Friday night before falling, 56-53.

  • Dixie Youth Baseball League...

    After decades of running their own summer baseball leagues, the city of LaFollette and the town of Caryville are combining forces to build a countywide program.

    Prospective coaches got a chance to meet organizers and board members of the newly formed Campbell County Dixie Youth Baseball League during a Sunday afternoon get-together at the CCHS Baseball Field House.

    “I’d like to make our program a countywide program,” CCHS baseball coach Brad Collette said when addressing the coaches in attendance.
