  • Carroll opens tournament with 9-0 loss to Ryle High

    Carroll County experienced a rough start in their home tournament Friday night, losing 9-0 in six innings to Ryle in The News-Democrat Carroll County Classic.

    “I don’t necessarily think we had the energy we should have had,” head coach Chelsie Roy said. “Andrea [Searcy] had five walks, our at bats, we had a base running mistake, just all that put together. We just did not come to play that game at all.”

    Carroll County was able to overcome two first inning errors and carried a 3-2 lead into the top of the seventh inning.

The Lady Panthers made a little noise in the bottom of the seventh, but Boone held on for a 9-5 victory March 23.

    The first two Boone County batters reached on errors, but Carroll’s defense stiffened behind pitcher Andrea Searcy and only allowed one run.
