  • Ladies advance to district championship with 3-1 win

    The Lady Panthers finally slammed the door shut on the scrappy Lady Cats Monday, winning 3-1 in the 31st District Tournament to advance to the championship game. No. 2 seed Carroll County will take on No. 1 seed Eminence, who defeated No. 4 seed Owen County on Tuesday night. The game is at 6 p.m. Thursday at Eminence High School.

    The Lady Panthers were up 2-0, but let the Lady Cats back in the game in the third set. But even in the wins, Henry County did not go down without a fight.

  • Panthers win back-to-back district championships

    As the horn sounded, Carroll County High School boys soccer coach Ben Crutcher raised his arms in celebration – and was congratulated with a nice water shower courtesy of his players – as the No. 1 seeded Panthers defeated the No. 2 seeded host, Henry County Wildcats, 3-0, Thursday in the 31st District Championship. Carroll County also won the championship last season in the district’s first year of existence.

  • Panthers advance to district championship

    The Panthers soccer team took care of business Monday night, defeating Gallatin County, 7-0, in the first round of the 31st District Tournament at Henry County. The boys will defend their title at 8 p.m. Thursday against Henry County. The Wildcats defeated Owen County, 4-3, Tuesday night in a shootout.

    Win or lose, Carroll and Henry are guaranteed spots in the 8th Region Tournament, beginning Monday, Oct. 21, either as a host team or a traveling team.

  • Lady Panthers put forth their best all season, but fall 2-0

    The Lady Panthers soccer team played its best game of the season Monday night in the 31st District tournament. Unfortunately, it was not enough, as they lost 2-0 to Henry County, ending their season. The girls finish with a record of 2-14.

    “That was probably the most amazing I have ever seen them all play together as a group,” head coach Greg Damron said. “We’ve always had one or two girls really always be that spotlight, but tonight, everybody was involved, everybody was making their plays.”

  • Lady Panthers sweep Henry, 3-0

    Carroll County volleyball earned a big district win Tuesday night, sweeping Henry County by scores of 25-18, 25-12, 25-18.

    It was the team’s fourth straight win, improving its record to 10-11 overall, 8-8 in the region and 6-3 in districts.

    The Lady Panthers did an excellent job of serve-receive, 95.56 percent as a team on the night. They also made 86.36 percent of their serves.

  • Carroll golf teams finish season in Regional Tourney

    The Panthers golf team traveled to Boone Links in Boone County Monday, while the Lady Panthers headed just up the road to Eagle Creek in Gallatin County Tuesday to compete in the Regional Tournament.

    The boys competed against 16 schools on a course that was about 600 yards longer than Fairway Golf Course – about 6,700 yards compared to 6,100 – head coach Josh Mefford said. “They did really well,” he said, noting the boys also played from the pro or championship tees.

  • Turnovers topple Panthers’ hopes, lose on the road to Walton-Verona

    Four first half turnovers doomed Carroll County’s chances Friday against Walton-Verona, as the Bearcats won, 48-21.

    The Panthers fumbled the ball twice, and quarterback John Michael Adams threw two interceptions. “We had a lot of turnovers in the first half that we couldn’t overcome,” head coach Mike Weedman said Tuesday.

  • Carroll earns district No. 1 seed with win over Henry County

    The Carroll County boys soccer team sits atop the 31st District heap heading into the district tournament. The Panthers defeated Henry County, 5-0, on the road Monday to clinch the No. 1 seed. They will take on the No. 4 seed on Monday, Oct. 14, in the tournament.

    Who they will play will be determined Thursday, Oct. 3, when Owen County takes on Henry at home. The winner will become the No. 2 seed, while the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds will be determined by a coin flip.

  • Panthers play tough against Pioneers

    The final score is not a true indicator of what really happened Tuesday night between the Carroll County and Simon Kenton boys soccer teams. The Panthers may have lost 5-3 to the visitors from Northern Kentucky, but the home team played tough the entire night against their much bigger opponent. Not only is Simon Kenton a 6A-size school in football, many of its players are more than a head taller than the Carroll County players.
