  • Playoff Champs!
  • High school indoor track season ends, looking forward to outdoor meets

    The Carroll County Panther track and field team competed in the 53rd Annual Mason-Dixon Games Saturday, March 2. The Panthers did well as individuals, but the team scores were not where we wanted them to be, head coach Joe Creager said in an e-mail.
    Mason-Dixon is equivalent to Indoor State, and the best competition from Class A was on hand to show what they can do.
    The Panthers were led by junior Taylor Byrd, whose diving finish was good enough for fifth place in the 400-meter run with a time of 57.1 seconds.

They certainly enjoy their mentoring relationships and all the activities that go with the program, but they are not the most enthusiastic voice for the magic of these friendships. It is the adult mentor, the “Big” in our vernacular, who best conveys the excitement and meaning in these relationships.
