    If you were a Campbell County High School track and field athlete competing in Thursday’s Section 1-AAA championships at Oak Ridge, odds were almost 50/50 that you would advance to the state Class AAA meet next week at Murfreesboro.

    Nearly half of the CCHS athletes who went to sectionals also qualified for state as one of the top four performers in their respective events.

    As has been the case all season long, it was the Young brothers, both seniors, leading the charge for the Cougars.

    Stickels got the White on the scoreboard first. Chris Stone tied it up for the Orange with the first of his three TDs.

  • Scrimmaging the big boys

    Rebuilding is a word that Dewayne Wells would like to eliminate from the Campbell County High School football vocabulary.

    So, instead of scheduling an opponent of equal or lesser ability for a spring scrimmage, the Cougars’ head coach decided to see what his returning players could do against defending Class 3A state champion Knoxville Catholic.

    Campbell County concluded nearly two weeks of spring practice by hosting the Irish on Thursday afternoon at L. Hope Dossett Stadium.
