  • Carroll defeats KCD 16-14 away

    The Carroll County football team traveled down to Louisville Friday night and returned with a satisfying 16-14 win over Kentucky Country Day, retribution for the 27-7 home loss suffered last season.

    On the opening possession, the Panther (4-0) defense held the Bearcats (3-1) to a three-and-out, forcing a punt. On Carroll’s first play from scrimmage, senior Carson Butcher broke away for a 60-yard touchdown run. The point after kick by senior Ben Newby gave the visitors a 7-0 lead and the momentum.

  • Cross Country meet at Grant County

    The Panther cross country team competed in the 38th annual Grant County Invite Saturday held at Sherman Elementary. Head coach Joe Creager said the course was very fast and several records were broken, including the varsity boys and girls 5K course and the elementary girls 1 mile course.

  • Panthers win Two Rivers Invitational for third straight year, Stewart MVP

    The Carroll County Panthers faced the Louisville Evangel Christian School on the soccer field Saturday afternoon and rolled right over the Screaming Eagles, 8-0.

  • Girls’ soccer beats Owen to capture their first win in program history

    Sept. 12, 2011 was a historic day for Carroll County sports. On that date, the girls’ soccer program won the first game in their program’s history. The win came at the expense of the Owen County Lady Rebels, as the Lady Panthers rolled 5-1 at home.

    “It was like we won the FIFA World Cup,” head coach Greg Damron said of his team’s reaction when the final whistle blew.

  • Trimble roasts Carroll in sweat match

    The Trimble County High School gymnasium was much like a sauna on a sultry Thursday evening last week as the Lady Raiders hosted Carroll County in volleyball. Trimble jumped to an early lead and never trailed in either contest en route to wins of 25-17 and 25-14.

    Trimble head coach Ruth Staples noted her team at times had a tendency to coast after building a large lead. In the opening contest Trimble fronted 22-10 before allowing the Lady Panthers a run that brought them within 24-17 before Trimble closed the door.

  • Panthers dominate second half, win 27-18 over Ludlow at home

    The Carroll County Panthers outscored the visiting Ludlow Panthers 21-0 in the third quarter to pull out a 27-18 victory.

  • Boys’ soccer defeats rival Gallatin, 2-0

    It was a battle of the keepers through most of the game Thursday between Carroll County’s sophomore Michael Hedges and Gallatin County’s senior Collin Hartke. Both players made save after save, including a one-handed grab by Hartke, to keep the score knotted at zero through the midway point of the second half.

    “That keeper for Gallatin is a great player, a great keeper,” Carroll head coach Ben Crutcher said. “He made some stellar saves and I thought that Michael really stepped it up and made some great saves for us as well.”

  • Panthers hold on for 13-8 win in home opener

    As the old adage goes, ‘Defense wins championships.’ For Carroll County to achieve their season goal of winning the 2A District 5 title, the defense will need to step up and deliver like they did Friday night against the visiting Lewis County Lions.

    After putting up 237 rushing yards and 152 passing yards in their season-opening win over Nicholas County, Lewis was limited to just 33 yards on the ground and 50 yards through the air. The Carroll defense also forced two fumbles on the night, helping their team to a 13-8 victory.
