    The Panthers football team dominated the second quarter, outscoring the home team Eminence Warriors 30-6, en route to a 60-26 road win.

    Junior David Marshall tied his own school record for most goals in a single game with six in Carroll County’s 10-0 win over Henry County Sept. 17.

    “The goal wasn’t to get him six goals or anything, it just kind of worked itself out that way,” head coach Ben Crutcher said. “I was pleased with everybody’s effort. Everybody stepped up, especially with missing a starter tonight.”

    The Panthers played without starter Tyler Stewart, who missed two games after drawing a red card against KCD Sept. 15.

  • Defense plays well, but KCD ‘O’ too much to handle

    The Carroll County Panthers gave a valiant effort, but it was not enough to get a win over Kentucky Country Day in the All ‘A’ regional Tuesday, Sept. 15 at Panther Field. KCD, ranked in the top 25 statewide, won 3-0 and will advance to the state tournament.

  • Volleyball falls in five sets to Henry

    Carroll County volleyball’s failure to finish points ended with a 3-2 loss to district rival Henry County, Sept. 8.

    “Positioning killed us tonight,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said. “We had 35 attack errors, which tells me we never got in the right position to hit the ball. The team had more errors than kills on the night.”

    The match was a back and forth affair all night as Henry prevailed in the odd number games (25-21, 24-26, 25-19, 23-25, 15-12).
