  • German potato salad was a Derby party favorite

    As I write this column, it has been the most incredible day and there is more to come tomorrow.

    First, we went to our grandson’s ballgame in Villa Hills, Ky., which is always such fun. Those fellas are so little and cute. Of course, it was cloudy and rainy, but we managed to get through the complete game.

    I also had the pleasure of giving my grandmother’s china to my daughter. Grandmother gave the china, and Mother gave the china to me. Now it was time for me to pass it on.

    The Panthers won the SE Kentucky Invitational last weekend in Bell County, Ky.

    In game one Friday, Ethan Stewart struck out nine batters as Carroll defeated host Bell County, 13-5.

    Head coach Jay Jones said the game was closer than the score made it appear. “Bell hit the ball hard all night, just right at us,” he said. “We made plays, and Ethan dominated the bottom half of their lineup.”

    With a three-run lead, Zach Wise hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth to blow the game wide open.

  • Panthers win 8-5 at home

  • Lady Panthers fall 10-6

    Kelsey Ogden hit the Lady Panthers’ first varsity homerun of the season against the North Oldham Lady Mustangs Thursday. Unfortunately, it did not come in a victory for the home team, as Carroll fell 10-6. Carroll put up 11 hits on the visitors, but also committed eight errors in the game.

    “We’re hitting the ball well enough to win,” head coach Ken Blair said. “We’ve gotta get rid of our Jekyll and Hyde fielding.”
