    Trimble beats Carroll 9-4 in NCKC

    Carroll could not pull out the hat trick against Trimble this season, falling 9-4 in the NCKC tournament May 10.

    Raider Jordan Tingle pitched a fantastic game, whiffing 11 Carroll batters. Carroll head coach Josh Mefford said Tingle hit his spots and had his curve ball working well. “It was very deceptive for us.”

    Down 1-0, Trimble scored six runs in the bottom of the third, capped by a grand slam by Dylan Staples.

  • 2012 Student-Athlete of the Year award: Quincy Hogan

    Some may call it a “good walk spoiled.” But to Quincy Hogan, golf is a sport that takes both mental and physical ability, one that is challenging but can also be a way to interact with people from across the state. 

    For as long as she can remember, Hogan has played golf and had an interest in animals. Soon she will be able to pursue both of her loves at the collegiate level as she moves on to Cumberland University with a spot on the women’s golf team and an academic track to being a veterinarian.

  • 2012 Student-Athlete of the Year award: Sergio Pascual

    When Carroll County High School senior Sergio Pascual went down with a fractured tibia against Walton-Verona toward the end of soccer season, doctors told him he would not be able to play tennis this spring; there was no way the leg would be strong enough.

    But Pascual proved everyone wrong.

    He dedicated himself to rehabbing his leg and was back on the court at the start of the season. He was undefeated and dropped just one set the entire regular season.
