  • Lady Panthers roll over Warriors, 54-17

    The Lady Panthers’ defense smothered the Eminence Warriors, forcing 46 turnovers—including 33 steals—as they glided to season-opening 54-17 victory on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

    “We wanted to come out with a lot of intensity and really get after them some and see how good at ball handling they were and see if we could turn them over a lot, and we did,” Carroll head coach Randy Mefford said.

    The Lady Panthers jumped out to a 25-2 advantage after one quarter of play, making a comeback near impossible for the Warriors.

  • Devine stumbles, Lady Panthers fall at Trimble County

    The loss of Carroll County’s Top Gun early in the second quarter contributed to a dismal evening for the Lady Panthers en route to a 53-29 win for Trimble County at Bedford Friday.

    Carroll senior Hannah Devine suffered the injury while driving the free throw lane to the basket. Devine suddenly crumpled with a knee injury and left the game with about six-and-a-half minutes remaining in the first half. Devine attempted to return to the game with 4:10 remaining in the half but the pain was too severe to continue.

  • Panthers ‘never stopped believing’ in heart-stopping win over Trimble

    Trimble County’s Skiler Alexander toed the charity stripe with 19.4 seconds remaining in a frenzied game with border rival Carroll County—a contest where the momentum had swung back and forth like the pendulum on a grandfather clock. Alexander and his Raiders had watched a 14-point, 57-43 lead gradually disappear over the final five minutes of the game.

  • Panthers ready to work, improve in ‘11-’12 season

    The Carroll County High School Panthers basketball team returns two of its top three leading scorers from last season in juniors Dallas Gibson and Trey Boles.

  • College signing
  • Classic contribution
  • Lady Panthers look to build on successes from last season

    After being unceremoniously bounced from the 31st District tournament by Gallatin County, the Carroll County High School girls’ basketball team is ready to get back on track.

    Leading the way is senior Hannah Devine, who averaged 25.3 points per game last season, good enough for third-best in the state. She also connected on 80 3-point baskets, second highest in the state, and was named to the All-District, All-A and All-Conference teams.

    The senior class student athletes were chosen based on their achievements on the course throughout the 2011 season and their coach’s recommendations.

    The Holy Cross (Covington) Indians ended the Carroll County Panthers’ season for the third time in four years with their 68-0 shutout Friday night in the opening round of the Class 2A playoffs at Holmes High School.

    The Panthers entered the game with the top passing defense in 2A, but was shredded for four touchdowns by quarterback Kyle Fuller. “Their front line on both sides of the ball was very good,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “(We) had opportunities early, and they were just pretty darn good.”
