Carroll competes at Switzerland meet

The Carroll County track and field team competed in the Switzerland County Vevay Newspapers Invitational on April 26. They competed against a field of all-Indiana schools: Switzerland County, Milan, Rising Sun, Jac-Cen-Del, Lawrenceburg, Shawe Memorial and Southwestern.

Carroll was without middle school runners Jenna Richmond, Mallory Bickers and Abby Miracle and thrower Malachi Corbin because of an IHSAA rule banning middle school athletes from competing in high school athletics.

The Panthers had strong showings from seniors Devin Gray and Dylan Jack. Gray led the way with a 2:05.86 and 1st place finish in the 800 meter run. Jack placed 3rd in the 110 meter hurdles and 6th in high jump.

Freshman Taylor Schirmer finished the night out with a 3rd place in the 300 Meter Hurdles. For the Lady Panthers, senior Andie Hardesty finished 3rd in the high jump. 

Carroll County is in action Thursday in the NCKTC Conference Championship Meet at Owen County. This is the last meet for the Panthers before Region, which will be held May 12 at Danville High School.
