  • Ward scheduled to run in NAIA...

     Courtney Ward of Jacksboro will be one of 11 University of the Cumberlands track and field athletes competing next week (May 27-29) in the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion.  She will run a leg of the women’s 4x100-meter relay along with Dominique Gainer of Miami, Lauren Martin of Detroit and Diana Unuode of Nigeria.

    Both the men’s and women’s teams from UC will be well represented this year at the national championship meet. The men have six participants, while the women have five qualifiers.

  • Changing Lanes: The story...

    Many of the players that played for Jim Lane’s championship teams the previous three years played on the CCHS Middle School Baseball team this season.

    This significantly reduced the number of players Lane would have on his new 13-14 year old baseball team.

    After much patience and deliberation Lane and long-time sponsor Dave Dunaway moved their team to a newly revised Senior League, which includes teams from LaFollette, Jellico and Harrogate.

  • Summer Youth Track Program...

    Campbell County High School will again be a host site for the Knoxville Track Club’s Summer Youth Track Program.

    The program is open to all girls and boys, ages 5-18, who are interested in track and field, running and athletics. The program exposes kids to the fundamentals of track and field, with an emphasis on fun and fitness.

    There will be four weeks of instruction, beginning June 1.

    Practices will be held each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Campbell County High School track.

  • CCHS high jumper wins Section 1-...

    High jumper Kristin Chapman is going back to the Class AAA state track meet.

    However, this time the Campbell County High School sophomore will have a Section 1 championship on her resume. Chapman out jumped Shelbie Burchfield of Morristown West for first place during Friday’s sectional meet at Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett and nearly qualified for state in the 100-meter hurdles, as well.

  • Cougars remain upbeat after...

    Campbell County High School’s football team would be hard-pressed to find an opponent better than the defending Class 3A state champion Knoxville Catholic team it scrimmaged last spring.

    However, a Bearden team that went two rounds of the Class 6A playoffs and finished 9-3 last season just might be better than that 2009 Catholic squad.

    You’ll get no argument from Campbell County coach Dewayne Wells.

  • Two Jellico players named first-...

    Jellico High School seniors Brittany Hughes and Noel Tiller have played ball many years together.

    Last week, they were their school’s first team selections on the All-District 4-A Softball Team. Lady Blue Devil teammates Zoe Wynkott and Ashley Ouimette were second team picks.

    Most valuable player was Coalfield’s freshman pitcher Lindsey Fadnek. Joining her on the all-district first team were Coalfield teammates Andrea Foster, Hannah Melhorn and Kaylee Watson.

    The other members of the all-district first team were:

  • 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.
