  • Season Preview: Lady Panthers set goals high after first year under belts

    With a second year under their belts in head coach Paul Stone’s system and losing no seniors to graduation last season, the Lady Panthers will look to improve upon their 7-20 record last season.

    “That is one positive to not having any seniors is because you have the same players back,” Stone said.

    Having a new coach, a new system and no seniors on the team was difficult for the girls last season, and on him, Stone said. This year’s team will be better because the girls now have varsity experience and understand the system.

  • Season Preview: Panthers look to seniors to lead inexperienced underclassmen

    Carroll County boys basketball head coach Carroll Yager said last season will be one where he will always wonder, “What if.” Five experienced seniors led the team, which was poised for success, but the season was plagued with injuries. Still, the team managed to come together and finish the season with a winning record, 16-12 overall, 9-9 in the 8th Region and 3-6 in the 31st District.

    Yager said he was really proud of the team last year and had a great group of seniors.
