  • 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.

  • Girls soccer honors first four-year class, eight seniors total

    The Carroll County High School girls soccer team celebrated a momentous occasion Saturday night against Cooper High School, as eight seniors played in the final home game. Seven of the eight have been with the program since it separated from the boys team, making this the first four-year class of seniors. The seven four-year seniors are Angel Carbajal, Carley Hunter, Sierra Martinez, Alex Skirvin, Nicki States, Kaylin Wallace and Aleshia Winburn. Fellow senior Kayla Anderson is a two-year player.

  • Defending our home court: Volleyball beats Owen, Gallatin

    Carroll County High School volleyball knocked off two district opponents back to back at home last week to improve their record to 5-3 in the district, 9-11 overall.

    The Lady Panthers defeated Owen County, 3-0, Wednesday and Gallatin County, 3-1, Thursday. 

    Carroll County dominated Owen County in games one and two, winning by wide margins, 25-17 and 25-9.
    After falling behind at the start 4-0, the Lady Panthers tied the game at 7 on a kill by Stevie Ogburn and never looked back. The girls served 79 percent and had an 88 percent serve-receive.

  • Boys finish third, girls fourth in NCKC Tournament

    The Carroll County High School golf teams competed in the NCKC tournament Tuesday at Fairway Golf Course.

    Senior Hannah McMahan, junior Clint Burgess and eighth-grader Blake Belcher were named to the All-Tournament Team.

    Competing in the tournament with Carroll County were Trimble, Gallatin, Owen and Henry counties and Walton-Verona and Williamstown. The top four golfers from each team contributed to the team score.

    The Panthers finished in third place with a score of 346. Walton-Verona won with a score of 324.

  • Volleyball rolls over Lady Demons, 3-0

    The Lady Panthers volleyball team dominated with its serving in games one and two and were able to hold on in game three to sweep Williamstown (25-10, 25-11, 25-21) Tuesday at home.

    “I saw a lot of movement, covering,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said, referring to the girls shifting with the ball and moving behind hitters in case of a block. “I saw a lot of communication, too.”

  • 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.”
