High School Sports

  • Boys, girls tennis teams return experience, drive to succeed

    The Carroll County tennis program continues to grow under the tutelage of sixth-year head coach Juan Fernandez. Fernandez began coaching the boys and became the girls coach last season.

  • Baseball returns all starters for first-year coach Ray

    First-year Carroll County High School baseball head coach Jimmy Ray takes the reins of a senior-laden team that returns all nine starters from last season. Last year’s team finished 15-16 and lost a heartbreaker to Owen County in the second round of the 31st District tournament.

    Ray is not new to the Carroll County baseball program.

  • Talented softball team has high hopes for upcoming season

    2013 could be a “banner” year for the Lady Panthers softball team.

    The girls lost just one senior from last year’s squad that finished 17-17 and lost in the first round of the 31st Districts to Owen County.

    The team is loaded with experienced talent, led by six juniors – Michaela Culver, Sarah Hawkins, Kelsey Ogden, Mackenzie Ogden, Kayla Williamston and Brittany Yocum – most of whom have played travel ball.

  • Spring Fever: Track and field excited for outdoor season

    The Carroll County track and field team is strong. Literally.

    Head coach Joe Creager said his team’s strengths this year will lie in the field events: jumping and throwing. The team also boasts a large number of juniors and seniors – four seniors and five juniors for the girls and three seniors and nine juniors for the boys. Unfortunately, not all of them have track and field experience.

  • High school indoor track season ends, looking forward to outdoor meets

    The Carroll County Panther track and field team competed in the 53rd Annual Mason-Dixon Games Saturday, March 2. The Panthers did well as individuals, but the team scores were not where we wanted them to be, head coach Joe Creager said in an e-mail.
    Mason-Dixon is equivalent to Indoor State, and the best competition from Class A was on hand to show what they can do.
    The Panthers were led by junior Taylor Byrd, whose diving finish was good enough for fifth place in the 400-meter run with a time of 57.1 seconds.

  • All-Conference honors for Boles, Gibson

  • Rebels ruin playoff party

    The Lady Panthers’ offensive struggles continued into the playoffs as the team went O-fer from 3-point range for the first time since Jan. 4, falling 56-30 to Owen County in the 31st District playoffs Friday, Feb. 22. The game was originally scheduled for Thursday, but was delayed due to weather concerns.

  • Track competes at Oldham

    The Panthers track and field team competed in the Oldham County Spring Thaw Meet Saturday, Feb. 23. The meet consisted mainly of relays and field events and was the first outdoor meet of the season.

    Creager said this was the first time many of the student-athletes were able to actually perform their field events. The team has been working on form, technique and drills, but due to the weather, they have not been able to land in the sand in long jump or throw the discus.
