  • Trimble roasts Carroll in sweat match

    The Trimble County High School gymnasium was much like a sauna on a sultry Thursday evening last week as the Lady Raiders hosted Carroll County in volleyball. Trimble jumped to an early lead and never trailed in either contest en route to wins of 25-17 and 25-14.

    Trimble head coach Ruth Staples noted her team at times had a tendency to coast after building a large lead. In the opening contest Trimble fronted 22-10 before allowing the Lady Panthers a run that brought them within 24-17 before Trimble closed the door.

  • Boys’ soccer defeats rival Gallatin, 2-0

    It was a battle of the keepers through most of the game Thursday between Carroll County’s sophomore Michael Hedges and Gallatin County’s senior Collin Hartke. Both players made save after save, including a one-handed grab by Hartke, to keep the score knotted at zero through the midway point of the second half.

    “That keeper for Gallatin is a great player, a great keeper,” Carroll head coach Ben Crutcher said. “He made some stellar saves and I thought that Michael really stepped it up and made some great saves for us as well.”
