  • Panthers defeat Raiders, 67-56

    The gym was rocking Thursday night for what felt more like a playoff game than the second game of the season. But that’s to be expected when border rivals Carroll and Trimble collide.

    The Panthers dominated on the inside, out-rebounding the Raiders 33-21 and shooting 43 percent from two-point range, while the Raiders drained 12 threes from the outside. But it was Carroll’s pressure defense that gave them a plus-11 turnover margin and secured a 67-56 win at home.

  • Learning curve: New coaches, system for young Lady Panthers

    The Lady Panthers basketball team is young. But what they lack in varsity experience, they make up for in effort and energy.
    That is what first-year head coach and athletic director Paul Stone, who took the reins from predecessor Randy Mefford, will be counting on for his team to be successful.

    Stone coached the past 11 seasons at Bardstown High School; the Lady Tigers were 11-18 last season.

  • Experience a strength for boys’ team

    The Panthers basketball team has all the pieces in place for this to be a successful year.

    The team boasts five seniors, but has nine players with varsity experience. Four of the five top-scorers and three of the five top-rebounders from last year’s squad return, including senior Dallas Gibson, who averaged a double-double with 15.6 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.

  • Panthers fall in playoffs to Juggernauts, 34-20

    Three first-half turnovers were too much to overcome for the Carroll County football Panthers as they lost 34-20 to Lloyd Memorial in the opening round of the Class 2A playoffs Friday at Lloyd Memorial High School in Erlanger.

    “We played good, but we could have played a lot better,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “I think the turnovers probably was the difference in the game. … We were not coming here for a moral victory; we came here to win. It was a tough loss, but I’m proud of the team and how hard they fought.”
