  • CCHS track and field host invitational

    The Carroll County High School track and field team hosted its first home meet of the season Friday, April 11. The boys finished in second place out of four teams, while the girls took third place.

    Head coach Christin Stoops said she was very proud of both teams, especially considering the small size of this year’s team. Carroll only fields 11 players — two girls and nine boys — while first place Owen County has 51 players.

  • Panthers win All ‘A’ championship

    The Carroll County High School baseball team (8-5) won three games over two days to become the 8th Region All ‘A’ champions Saturday. The team will play 7th Region All ‘A’ champion Kentucky Country Day at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, at Panther Field to earn a spot in the state tournament in Lexington.

    “It feels great,” head coach Jimmy Ray saidTuesday. “They deserved to win.”

  • Tennis teams win NCKC tournament

    The Carroll County boys and girls tennis teams won the NCKC team championships Saturday at Trimble County. Winners are determined by adding up the number of points the schools earned in each match. The Carroll County boys won their side with this method. However, all three girls teams were tied after counting match points, so individual games won were counted and the Carroll County girls won.

    “The boys killed it,” head coach Juan Fernandez said.

  • Carroll rallies in 6th for comeback win

    Ice cold off the bench (literally), Mackenzi Hawkins hit a sacrifice grounder to second base to score a run in the middle of Carroll County’s sixth-inning rally at home Tuesday against Gallatin County. The junior clipped on her gear and caught an inning behind the dish, before her big moment in the bottom of the seventh inning. With two outs and bases loaded, Hawkins singled to centerfield to score the game-winning run, 5-4.

  • Panthers 0-3 at Thomas Nelson

    The Panthers struck out during this season’s spring break trip, dropping three straight games March 31-April 1. Carroll lost to Edmonson County (6-5), Bullitt Central (10-4) and John Hardin (10-2) in the General Spring Break Bash at Thomas Nelson High School.

    But despite the final scores, head coach Jimmy Ray said the trip was a learning experience for his team and their team goals are still very attainable.

    “The good thing about the whole tournament is we scored a run at the end of every game, so that shows we didn’t give up,” he said.

  • Lady Panthers drop three

    Weather disrupted yet another tournament for the Carroll County softball team. The team traveled to Woodford County for a spring break tournament Saturday, April 5. The tournament was originally scheduled for both Friday and Saturday, but heavy rainfall changed those plans.

    The Lady Panthers played three games Saturday, and, unfortunately, left dropping all three.

    Carroll County started the day off against Boyle County. The girls managed just three hits in the game, falling 8-0, in five innings.

  • Panthers win over Switzerland, 4-3

    The Panthers broke a five-game losing streak with a 4-3 win at Switzerland County Tuesday. Keifer McIntyre pitched 5 1/3 innings, striking out four and walking four, in the win. Justin Ray came in for relief, pitching 1 2/3 innings and striking out three batters and walking two to earn the save.

  • Tennis takes the court: Girls 2-1, Boys 2-0 so far

    Head coach Juan Fernandez said Monday that he is disappointed in the way the girls are playing. They can play much better tennis, but no one can tell that right now on the court, he said.
