  • 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.

  • Rebels ruin playoff party

    The Rebels ultimately became 31st District Champions for the second year in a row. They took on Anderson County in the 8th Region Monday, Feb. 25 at Henry County.

    It may not look like it after seeing a final score of 75-41, but Carroll County (15-11) matched South Oldham (19-6) stride for stride in the opening part of the game, Feb. 12.

    Brandon Stewart hit a 3-pointer with 6:07 to go in the second quarter to pull the Panthers within two points, 23-21.

    But then the wheels came off the Panther Express.

  • 31st District champs
  • Corbin’s buzzer-beater sends seniors off with win

    Friday night proved to be a fairy tale ending for the Fab Five seniors.

    Tied up at 66 points apiece, the Panthers took a timeout with 6.1 seconds to go. The visiting Walton-Verona Bearcats had just erased a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit with a 3-pointer by Tanner Moeves off a screen on the right side of the floor.

  • Ladies fall 47-13 to Bearcats

    The Lady Panthers struggled mightily on offense Friday, posting their lowest output of the season with a 47-13 loss to Walton-Verona.

    However, head coach Paul Stone said he was proud of his team’s defense, especially in the third quarter, in which his team outscored the Lady Bearcats 6-3. “I was proud of the way we came out and played in the third quarter,” he said. “They didn’t give up and came out ready to play.”

  • Track team competes at Mason Dixon

    The Carroll County varsity track team competed in the Mason County Indoor Meet Saturday, Feb. 9. Head coach Joe Creager said the team had some good results and was able to compare times with the University of Kentucky meet two weeks ago.

    Senior Brandon Franklin led the team with a 9th place finish in the shot put.

  • Boys beat Bellevue by 12 points Saturday

    The Panthers hit 54 percent from the field, including 42 percent from long range, in their 57-45 win over Bellevue Saturday, Feb. 9.

    Head coach Carroll Yager said he thought the team looked flat in the first half, due in part to playing a late game the night before and being out of routine on the weekend. But the boys pulled together and won the game as a unit, with all members who got playing time contributing.
