High School Sports

  • Alumni, friends of program return to take on varsity soccer teams

    The Carroll County High School soccer teams hosted alumni games Saturday, Aug. 3. It was the first ever alumni game for the girls program and the sixth annual for the boys. 

    In the girls match, the alumni won, 8-0. While the score may have appeared one-sided, head coach Greg Damron was pleased with the way his team hung with the alumni, which included five college players.

    Former Lady Panthers assistant coach Lillian Scott scored two goals, while Victoria Paytner and Bre Smith also scored two goals. Lidia Jimenez and Nikki Hill each scored.

  • Preparing for battle

    Carroll County High School football held their annual training camp July 29-31, at Happy Hills Christian Service Camp in Carroll County.

    “Best training camp we’ve ever had, by far, and we’ve still got another day,” head coach Mike Weedman said Tuesday, July 30. The players have had a great attitude, good work ethic and have not complained once, he said.

    “They’re tired, beat up and sore and they’re not complaining,” Weedman said. “I’m so proud of this bunch.”

  • Panthers poised to defend titles

    The Panthers soccer team looks to defend its 31st District and NCKC Conference titles this season. The team boasts a good balance of both experience – five seniors anchor the team – and youthful talent, however the bench will be shallow. 

    “The upside on low numbers is we have more quality players than quantity,” head coach Ben Crutcher said. The team has about 25 players. While there are few middle school players, some have never played soccer before.

  • Ladies change things up in fourth year

    The Lady Panthers soccer team will be changing up its style of play this season after three years of relying heavily on its defensive line.

    Over the past three years, the team has depended on the defensive line to be the backbone and feed the ball forward, he said. This year, the team still has a great defensive line, but head coach Greg Damron said he wants to give the midfield more responsibility. The team also will switch to a stopper/sweeper formation. The goal is to control the ball more and translate that into wins.

  • Lady Panthers golf team ready to compete in 2013 season

    The Carroll County High School golf teams have a new home this season: Fairway Golf Course in Wheatly, Ky. and Perry Park Country Club in Perry Park, Ky.

    Athletic Director Paul Stone said Tuesday that the matches moved from General Butler State Resort Park because Fairway and Perry Park offer more holes – 18 at Fairway and 27 at Perry Park – as well as a driving range, both of which are beneficial to the players. It also was easier to schedule matches there.

  • Cross Country Meeting | July 17, 2013

  • High school tennis courts now under construction

    If you have driven down Hwy. 227 past the Carroll County High School in the past week, you may have noticed something is missing.

    Construction began last week on the installation of the new tennis courts at the high school, meaning the old ones had to be removed. Tennis Technology Inc. of Louisville won the bid for the project at a cost of $103,222. The bid included three new courts, net posts and a vinyl coated fence with two gates. The company also will fix the drainage issues by installing a perimeter drainage system.
