    The boys’ soccer team opened the 2011 campaign with a commanding 8-0 win Thursday over conference rival Henry County. This was the first opening-season win for the Panthers in its short history.

    “They played really good ball,” head coach Ben Crutcher said. “We did a lot of good things, but we’ve still got a lot to learn.”

  • Trimble defeats Carroll 2-0

    It should have been a long, knockdown, drag out, three-game fight between Carroll County and their border rival Trimble County, a team that beat them four games to one last season. Instead, the Lady Panthers stumbled out of their corner and into the ring against a team who would show no mercy.

  • Seven seniors lead this year’s Carroll cross country squad

    After a three-year drought, this could be the year that the Carroll County cross country team sends a player, or possibly a team, to the state meet.

    Third-year head coach Joe Creager said he has finally convinced senior track and field athlete Devin Gray to run cross country, which he has not done since he was in middle school. However, Creager believes Gray has the potential to advance to the state meet. The last Panther to do so was D’Anthony Collins in 2007.
