  • Report offers insight on crashes on highways across Kentucky

    While no one can accurately predict where a traffic accident might occur, information gathered by the Kentucky State Police gives us a pretty good idea of when the odds are certainly in our favor.

    Based on its latest annual report, which was released last week, one of the safest places to be on the highway in 2010 was in a vehicle driven at dawn on a Sunday in March by a woman in her late 60s or early 70s who was making her way between Owensboro and Henderson on the Audubon Parkway.

    The Lady Panthers’ soccer team knotted the game 1-1 at halftime, but ultimately fell 4-1 to visiting Walton-Verona on Saturday night.

    “Not the ending that we wanted, but I still felt like we did a good job with Walton-Verona,” Carroll head coach Greg Damron said. “…We kept the ball on our offensive end the majority of the game. They just had some great breakaways and some really good girls with a good foot and the good touch on the ball.”

    After facing stiff competition the previous weekend in the Franklin-Simpson Invitational, including battling then-third ranked Trinity (Louisville), the Carroll County boys’ soccer team returned to their home field to take on Cooper High School Thursday night.

  • Lady Panthers unable to pull out win over Bellevue on senior night

    Senior night for the Carroll County Lady Panthers started out much like the first time they met Bellevue High School 11 days ago with a tightly contested game before falling 25-22 and 25-10.

    The score in the first game went back and forth with neither team holding more than a two-point edge until midway through the game. Trailing 12-10, Carroll had the first run of the game by ripping off 5 points behind the serving of Erin Spradlin to take a 15-12 lead. Bellevue took a time out and after the time out Carroll had a service error and Bellevue started a 3-point run.
