  • LaFollette's Stone Webb

    Austin Stone and Peyton Webb became a ‘Stone Webb’ for the LaFollette Owls on Thursday night.

    Playing against a tough Lakers team, the two put on a show on the defensive side of the ball. However, the Owls simply couldn’t find a rhythm on offense, slipping 26-0 against Lake City.

    “We played a lot better, excluding the first four minutes of the first quarter,” head coach Chris Honeycutt said. “We bowed our backs pretty good. Offense put us in some bad situations, but I think our defense did pretty good.”

  • Makin’ it look easy

    Sherlock Holmes once said, “Elementary, my dear Watson.”

    In other words, it’s pretty simple.

    At least that’s how the Campbell County elementary cross-country teams made it look on Monday evening at Cove Lake.

    “I think what a lot of people forget is that running is a natural thing,” head coach Anne Browning said. “It’s a very natural activity, especially for children. They don’t know at that point in their life that they have limits. They just run like their hair’s on fire.”

  • No rhythm for Cougars

    Oh snap!

    That’s probably what the Campbell County Cougars were thinking on Thursday night against Anderson County, as the Mavericks rolled to a 36-0 victory in the Powell-Clinch Classic.

    Seeing three snaps sail high, resulting in a loss of 36 yards and a safety, was hard enough. Throw in two sacks for 14 yards of loss, another fumble, an interception, and a turnover on fourth-and-inches and the Cougars simply couldn’t find their rhythm.
