  • Boys outscored 10-2 in third, lose 48-36 to Gallatin

    Carroll County struggled against Gallatin County’s pressure defense, committing 27 turnovers en route to a 48-36 loss at home.

    “That’s the difference in the game,” Panthers head coach Carroll Yager said. “We missed some easy shots around the basket, probably four or five at least, right there at the basket … that could have been a difference too. Big thing is we have to handle the ball a bit better. We’re going to keep working on things to do that.”

  • Lady Panthers pull out win over Henry

    Down 20-10 heading into the fourth quarter, things looked bleak for the Carroll County Lady Panthers.

    But just when it seemed like the Lady Wildcats (3-10) had the game in hand, the Lady Panthers (4-10) started hitting shots. Carroll went on a 17-2 run in the fourth to pull out a 27-22 come-from-behind win on Tuesday, Jan. 3.
