  • Cougars fall 34-0 at Loudon

  • Hiwassee signs former CCHS star

    With a .450 batting average, 41 RBI, 3 home runs and all-district honors last season, Justin Willoughby was one of the better prospects in the Class of 2010.

    But no tangible offers came his way until Hiwassee College offered the recent Campbell County High School graduate a chance to further his education and baseball career.

    Willoughby, who started at first base and also pitched for the Cougars, recently signed with Hiwassee and plans to major in physical therapy.

  • Cougars scrimmage Seymour,...

    Dewayne Wells called it the “typical first scrimmage” of fall practice for his football team.

    Wells, who is beginning his 10th season as Campbell County High School’s head varsity football coach, saw good things and bad things during a 3-way scrimmage Friday afternoon at Seymour. The Cougars gave up two touchdowns each to the host Eagles and the Hilltoppers from Science Hill. Sophomore Bo Farris scored Campbell County’s only touchdown.

    “We ran the ball well at times, but dropped passes killed our drives,” said Wells.

    There were more questions than answers Friday night following Campbell County High School’s final football scrimmage of the preseason.

    •Will a youthful secondary be able to defend the pass?

    •Can the Cougars find a way to score on offense when they reach the red zone?

    Those were the same questions going into a 3-way scrimmage Friday with South-Doyle and Cumberland County.

    In the second game of the night, Bell County shut out Whitley County, 12-0, in a battle of Kentucky heavyweights.
