  • Carroll volleyball wins three-straight, falls to Trimble in championship of tourney

    The Carroll County volleyball team finished in second place to rival Trimble County in the Carroll County River Classic, held Saturday at Carroll County High School and Cartmell Elementary.

    “Overall, I am proud of our girl’s tenacity and drive throughout the tournament,” head coach Kristen Hooper said. “It was a long day. The girls played four matches in a row, and they were physically, mentally and emotionally challenged the entire time. Their ability to struggle through the hard times and celebrate the good showed their character as a team.”

  • Carroll serves up a loss for rival Owen

    It is hard to score if you cannot serve the ball over the net.

    “Strong serving, aggressive serving, made the difference tonight,” Carroll head coach Kristen Hooper said. There was an optional serving practice after school before the game; not all of the varsity players came, Hooper said, but you could see the difference in the ones that did.

  • Tigers romp Panthers, 30-8, for first loss of season

    The wheels fell off the Panther Express Friday night as the Bellevue Tigers came to town on homecoming night and delivered Carroll their first loss of the season, 30-8.

    The Panthers offense was stymied for most of the night, and they turned the ball over four times – two fumbles and two interceptions – and also had a punt blocked.

    Their defense forced one turnover, a second-quarter fumble that led to their only scoring drive of the night.
