  • 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.

  • Volleyball ladies win over Gallatin

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers’ volleyball team roared out of the gates and into the 2011 season Friday, winning 2-0 over district foe Gallatin County.

    “I certainly can’t complain,” head coach Kristen Hooper said. “I think the girls did very well. A couple of first game jitters the first game, but second game, I think we found a bit of a groove.”

    Girls finish in second, Quincy Hogan medals

    The Lady Panthers’ golf team defeated Williamstown, but fell short to Owen Thursday at Fairway. Carroll scored 224, while Owen shot 176 and Williamstown shot 256. 

  • District changes may help Panthers’ chase for title

    The Carroll County Panthers’ football team has a single goal for this season: win a district championship.

    “The margin for error is very small, but we feel that it is time that we take that next step,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “This district is ours for the taking.”

  • 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.

  • Hogan medals in Grant County tournament

    Senior Quincy Hogan shot a 78 in the Grant County Invitational Aug. 2, earning her a fourth place finish and medal honors. This marked her lowest score in a tournament for her school career, according to head coach Jay Jones.

    Jones said Hogan had a great short game and showed a lot of patience in the match.

  • Lady Panthers soccer adds JV team as program grows

    In its second year of existence, the Lady Panthers’ soccer team is growing by leaps and bounds. The varsity squad has swelled to 26 players, although several will be playing JV as well to gain more experience, head coach Greg Damron said. He said a total of 33 girls expressed interest in playing, and he averages 24-28 per practice.

    “It’s been a great practice season so far,” he said. “So far we haven’t had any injuries. This time last year, we had three starters injured.”

  • Lady Panthers golf coach excited by young team’s potential

    The Carroll County Lady Panther golf team may be young, but they are determined to improve and are full of potential.

    The team returns senior Quincy Hogan, sophomores Ashli Childs and Hannah McMahan and eighth grader Elisha Rabago from last year’s squad and has added three more players. While Sixth grader Ciara Hamilton has played golf over the summer, this is the first time she and eighth graders Jaden Bailey and Taylor Hayden have ever played competitive golf.

  • Boys’ soccer wants to build on to last season’s success

    The Carroll County Panthers’ boys’ soccer team took a giant leap forward last season, setting school records for the young program. The 2010 squad set school records for most goals in a season, most wins, fewest goals allowed in a season, largest shutout and most goals in a game.

    “That squad from last year set the bar for what we can potentially bring out for Carroll County soccer,” head coach Ben Crutcher said. This is Crutcher’s ninth year in the program, seventh as varsity head coach.

  • New season, new opportunity for Lady Panther volleyball

    Despite having three talented and experienced seniors, the 2010 campaign was a disappointing year for the Lady Panther volleyball team, which finished 8-14. However, third-year head coach Kristen Arbinger Hooper said she is excited about the talent level of this year’s squad and how well they work together as a team.
