Seventh grader Malachi Corbin propelled the Carroll County Middle School boys track and field team to 18 out of 56 with his one-man-effort in Saturday’s KTCCCA Middle School State Meet held at Paul Dunbar High School in Lexington.
Corbin placed 2nd in shot put with a new personal record of 42 feet 10 inches. The only athlete to finish with a better throw had to break a middle school state record to do so, head coach Joe Creager said in an email. Corbin was the only seventh grader to finish in the top 15.
The Carroll County Middle School baseball team is very young and inexperienced, but are improving day by day, said head coach Jimmy Ray. He said the purpose of middle school baseball was to teach the players fundamentals and to prepare them for high school baseball.
This is Ray’s first year as head coach, but he has helped coach both the middle school and high school teams in the past. He also coaches a summer league baseball team.
Fourth-grader Clara Tuttle and third-grader Kennedy Daigle were the top performers in the Carroll County Elementary track team’s first meet on Thursday, April 12, at Henry County High School.
Head coach Joe Creager said elementary track is different from high school track in that athletes are allowed to participate in more than four events per meet, and the events are broken down by age group. The 4x100 meter relay also is both co-ed and across school and team lines.
About 60 people formed six teams and participated in The Support Second Base Susan G. Komen softball tournament Saturday at the county park. The event raised about $950, part of the fundraising effort by Brittany Belcher and her family to participate in the 3-Day for the Cure walk this November in San Diego.
The Carroll County High School football team will hold a youth camp, K-7th grade, March 26-29 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Fliers are being passed around the school. Registration will be held in the high school cafeteria on March 26.
The cost of the camp is $30, $10 for additional family members. Campers will need tennis shoes, shorts and t-shirt. A camp t-shirt is included in the cost. This is a non-contact camp and any questions can be e-mailed to head coach Mike Weedman at Michael.Weedman@carroll.kyschools.us.
The deadline has been extended for elementary students interested in participating on the Carroll County High School track and field teams to March 30. Players will begin practice on the Monday following Spring Break.
Students will need to have a KHSAA physical on file at the high school with Coach Joe Creager before they can practice. Students will also need to have a permission form with parent/guardian contact information and signature before they can participate. Practices will be Mondays at CCHS from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
