  • Carroll wins 28-12 on Senior Night

    Carroll junior Tyshawn Embs made his presence known as he returned to the lineup and rushed for 222 yards on 15 carries and two touchdowns to help propel the Panthers over the visiting Dayton Greendevils 28-12 on Senior Night.

    “It was so refreshing to see Tyshawn have the game that he did,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “He needed that game; he needed that game for himself. Our team needed him to have that game because he’s had a rough couple of weeks.”

    It was arguably the biggest game of the season for the Carroll County Panthers. A district road test against undefeated Owen County for a shot at the 2A District 5 title.

    Down just 13-0 at halftime, the Panthers were unable to make the most of their opportunities, losing 33-7.

    “We missed several opportunities early to take the lead early in the game, and we couldn’t capitalize on those opportunities,” head coach Mike Weedman said.

  • Hogan shoots 91 at state

    Carroll County head coach Jay Jones said Hogan “scrambled like crazy on a very tough course with the fastest greens we have ever played.”

    While she is normally very solid off of the tee, Hogan struggled at times keeping her shot straight, Jones said.

  • Seven soccer seniors play final game for black and gold

    Friday was an emotional night at Panther Field for the Carroll County boys’ soccer team. The Panthers bid farewell to their seven seniors—Devin Gray, Erick Lewis, Junior Martinez, Kaleb Nab, Sergio Pascual, Kevin States, Ian White—who would be representing the black and gold for the last time.

    Carroll struck first, but not often enough to pull out a victory, falling 5-3 to the Covington Latin Trojans (7-10).

  • Tie gives Carroll 3rd place in conference

    The Panthers’ soccer team had carried their fate in their hands coming into Tuesday’s match-up against Walton-Verona. Win and they would take the conference title. Lose and they would have to wait until next year to raise the banner.

    Unfortunately for Carroll County (7-10-1), it just wasn’t meant to be as they tied the Bearcats (8-5-3) 1-1 at Panther Field. With the tie, the Panthers finished in third place and Gallatin came out on top for the second straight year.
