  • Backcourt pressure defense leads to Carroll turnovers

    The Lady Panthers struggled against the Gallatin County full-court pressure defense, which prevented them from getting into their offensive sets. The team committed 25 turnovers on the night, losing 68-33 Friday night.

    Carroll County (3-10) fell behind early, 9-2. But following a timeout, they went on an 8-2 run on 3-pointers by Kayla Williamson and Miranda Groseclose and a bucket on the block by Lauren Moore, forcing a Gallatin County timeout with 2:26 left in the first quarter. Gallatin (9-5) matched Carroll with an 8-2 run of their own to end the quarter up 19-12.

    With about five minutes to go in the fourth quarter, the Carroll County Panthers held a seven-point lead over district foe Henry County.

  • Missed shots inside, free throws contribute to loss

    Fifteen. That’s the number of shots from one foot away from the basket and the number of free throws the Panthers missed Friday night against Gallatin County. The end result was a 15-point homecoming-night loss in front of a packed house.

  • Lady Panthers take down Lady Cats, 46-34

  • Lawmakers begin work in Frankfort

    The first week or two of a legislative session may seem slow at first glance, but that doesn’t diminish the importance of these opening days.

    On Tuesday, DJ Carroll filed his paperwork to run for magistrate in District 3 on the Republican ticket. He will not be on the May primary ballot, unless someone files to challenge him for that nomination.

    “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” (Matt 25:35)

    Have you ever asked yourself what social justice looks like?  I mean really asked yourself. Around Christmastime each year, we human beings tend to make more attempts than usual to help the less fortunate, but by mid-January this approach has lost its luster.
