  • Panthers fight back, beat KCD

    Carroll County football overcame a 14-0 first quarter deficit to outscore Kentucky Country Day, 34-7, the rest of the way to win, 34-21, on the road Friday.

    “Really proud of the team, once again, for fighting back,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “It was another close, emotional game, but this time we were able to pull out the win.”

  • Henry hangs district loss on Carroll volleyball, 3-2

    The Carroll County volleyball team suffered a heartbreaking loss, 3-2, to Henry County Tuesday, Sept. 10. 

    “Unfortunately it was a big district loss for us,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said. “Our hitting killed us.”

    The Lady Panthers amassed 27 hitting errors over the five games. 

    A historically slow team at the start this season, the Lady Panthers improved in that area, thanks to a new warm-up routine. Eaglin said the team did not start the game out flat-footed; they were ready to play.

  • Girls fall 3-0 to Henry

    The Lady Panthers soccer team suffered a disappointing loss Saturday at the hands of Henry County, 3-1, at home. “We can play Walton-Verona 3-0, and they’re just a higher quality team,” head coach Greg Damron said after the game, referring to Carroll’s Sept. 5, match with the Lady Bearcats. “I’m not saying Henry County is a bad team, but they’re not as good as we made them look.”

    Damron was somewhat at a loss for words to describe his team’s struggles against the Lady Cats.

  • Ogden header wins the game for Panthers

    The Panthers soccer team may not have played as well as they would have liked, but, in the end, it was the final score that mattered. Carroll County defeated visiting Henry County, 3-2, in overtime Saturday in a double header with the girls varsity teams. It also was Military Appreciation Night, so both teams sported camouflage t-shirts in lieu of the black and gold.

    Tied at the end of regulation, senior Mark Ogburn scored the winning goal with a header into the back of the net off of an assist by fellow senior Cody Cruz.

  • First phase of trails now ready to use
