Panthers add to number qualifying for state

With the completion of the final 3 Class A Regional Meets last weekend, the Panthers found out that three more of their events qualified for the State Track and Field Meet this Friday May 27 at the University of Louisville. Those qualifying are Evan Mefford in the 300 meter hurdles; the 4x100 meter relay team of Ben Newby, Brody Newby, Ben Schirmer and Tyler Grant; and Destiny Tingle in the girls pole vault. This brings the total number of state qualifiers from Carroll County High School to 11 individuals.

Three students honored for academic achievements

Three Carroll County runners will earn academic honors from the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association for their performance not only on the track but also in the classroom. These include: freshman Taylor Byrd, academic all-state; sophomore Nora Fremin, academic all-state honorable mention; and senior Brody Newby, academic all-state honorable mention. These three athletes have met the requirements of advancing to the state meet and having a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
