  • Volleyball falls to Walton-Verona

    The Lady Panthers volleyball team showed some fight in game two, but otherwise had a poor performance Monday against a tough Walton-Verona squad, falling 2-0 (25-8, 25-16).

    “We definitely played the second game better than the first game,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said. “[The girls] came out timid. Walton’s got some really good outside and attack hitters, and we couldn’t capitalize on the blocks.”

    Carroll kept the game within reach early, highlighted by an Abby Evans kill, but two serving streaks put the game out of reach.

  • Red Cross urges blood, platelet donations during National Preparedness Month

    The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give blood and platelets this fall to help restock the shelves following a significant summer shortage to ensure an adequate blood supply for patients in need.

    Through the first two weeks of September, the Red Cross is down more than 10,000 donations from what is needed to replenish the blood supply and be prepared for emergencies large and small. Declines in donations can lead to blood shortages and make it difficult to meet patient needs should a disaster or emergency occur.
