  • Carroll County defeats Gallatin 3-0 to advance in 31st District championship

    Defeating a team three times in a season is difficult, as Gallatin County found out Oct. 17, in 31st District Tournament. Carroll County snapped a five-game losing streak to sweep Gallatin County, 3-0 (25-22, 25-14, 25-21).

    Carroll started off strong in the first set, opening up a 4-1 lead and hanging on through the match to pull out their first set win since the 3-1 defeat of Henry County on Sept. 27. The Lady Panthers had several long serving runs in the set, which is something they have been unable to sustain in the last several weeks.
