  • Panthers soccer ties Holy Cross (Covington)

    The matchup on the pitch between Carroll County and Holy Cross (Covington) was one of those games you wish would have gone into overtime, just to see how it all played out in the end. Unfortunately, it was not a district contest, and the game ended Thursday, Sept. 19, knotted in a 3-3 tie.

    “I thought that was a great game, great effort by us,” head coach Ben Crutcher said. “I was pleased with the tie to be our third game in three nights.”

  • Ladies soccer falls to Gallatin

    The Lady Panthers soccer team is still looking for that spark to help turn their season around and to make the game fun again. The girls lost, 3-1, at home Tuesday to district opponent Gallatin County.

    “I’ve got a group of girls right now that’s beating themselves up,” head coach Greg Damron said. “We came out a little more forceful this time, a little more intense. Intensity still isn’t where I need it to be, but we did come out with a little more intensity tonight.”

  • Football falls to Bellevue

    Friday night’s game at Bellevue (3-2) is probably one the Panthers would rather forget. Carroll County lost 48-6 in the pouring rain.  

    “We got taken to the woodshed, plain and simple,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “We weren’t ourselves. We had inopportune penalties that hurt us, and I think the weather also played a factor.”

  • Hall ties scoring records in shutout

    Carroll County boys soccer senior Michael Hall put on a clinic Tuesday night against district foe Gallatin County, scoring five first-half goals to tie the school record for most goals in a game and tying his own school scoring record for most goals in a season at 21 – and he still has eight regular season games plus tournament play to put it further out of reach.

  • Boys, girls cross country wins home meet

    Carroll County cross country girls and boys teams both won Tuesday night at the only home meet of the season, held at the high school against Trimble County and Gallatin County.

    Head coach Brian Crank said the boys team has been working hard and has improved greatly. Michael Burns finished in second place overall while setting a school record with a time of 17:22. The new record is 12 seconds faster than the previous mark.

  • Panthers fight back, beat KCD

    Carroll County football overcame a 14-0 first quarter deficit to outscore Kentucky Country Day, 34-7, the rest of the way to win, 34-21, on the road Friday.

    “Really proud of the team, once again, for fighting back,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “It was another close, emotional game, but this time we were able to pull out the win.”

  • Henry hangs district loss on Carroll volleyball, 3-2

    The Carroll County volleyball team suffered a heartbreaking loss, 3-2, to Henry County Tuesday, Sept. 10. 

    “Unfortunately it was a big district loss for us,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said. “Our hitting killed us.”

    The Lady Panthers amassed 27 hitting errors over the five games. 

    A historically slow team at the start this season, the Lady Panthers improved in that area, thanks to a new warm-up routine. Eaglin said the team did not start the game out flat-footed; they were ready to play.

  • Girls fall 3-0 to Henry

    The Lady Panthers soccer team suffered a disappointing loss Saturday at the hands of Henry County, 3-1, at home. “We can play Walton-Verona 3-0, and they’re just a higher quality team,” head coach Greg Damron said after the game, referring to Carroll’s Sept. 5, match with the Lady Bearcats. “I’m not saying Henry County is a bad team, but they’re not as good as we made them look.”

    Damron was somewhat at a loss for words to describe his team’s struggles against the Lady Cats.

  • Ogden header wins the game for Panthers

    The Panthers soccer team may not have played as well as they would have liked, but, in the end, it was the final score that mattered. Carroll County defeated visiting Henry County, 3-2, in overtime Saturday in a double header with the girls varsity teams. It also was Military Appreciation Night, so both teams sported camouflage t-shirts in lieu of the black and gold.

    Tied at the end of regulation, senior Mark Ogburn scored the winning goal with a header into the back of the net off of an assist by fellow senior Cody Cruz.

  • Girls golf wins by default over Gallatin

    The Lady Panthers win Sept. 3, over Gallatin County at Fairway due to a default. The Lady Wildcats only had three players.

    The two teams decided to play anyway for fun. Hannah McMahan led all golfers with a 49, followed by Ciara Hamilton with a 60. The rest of the Lady Panthers finished closely with Chasity Taylor shooting a 65; Taylor Napier, 66; Jadyn Bailey, 67; and Natalie Bennett, 70.
