High School Sports

  • Panthers Prevail

    The stage was set for a big night. Two teams who played each other down to the wire a season ago were set for a re-match under the bright lights of Whitaker Bank Ballpark, home of the Lexington Legends.

    The Franklin County Flyers hosted the Carroll County Panthers last season and sent the visitors home with a 10-9 loss after coming from behind in the bottom of the seventh inning. This season’s match-up proved to be just as thrilling.

    Softball drops home loss to Owen County, 7-6

    The Lady Panthers lost a 7-6 heartbreaker to the Lady Rebels of Owen County at home Thursday night. With a 6-5 lead in the top of the seventh inning with two outs and runners on second and third, a ball was hit to pitcher Kayley Perry at the mound, but an overthrow at first base allowed both runners to score.

  • Carroll 2nd, 4th overall in home meet

    The Carroll County High School track and field team was in action Tuesday at home for its first outdoor meet of the season.  The team competed against local rivals Henry, Trimble, and Owen as well as Northern Kentucky’s Holmes High School. 

  • Softball falls 11-2 in season opener

    The Lady Panthers could feel it. After being down 4-0 in the bottom of the fourth, the girls finally began gaining some momentum. However, errors and miscommunication fouled up their chance at a rally. Ultimately they fell 11-2 at home to Henry County (1-0) Tuesday, March 22 in their season and home opener.

    “We stood up to them pretty well for five innings there,” first-year head coach Ken Blair said, “and then we got young girls. They got a little excited, I guess, lost their focus. But I felt like we played pretty well up until (then).”

  • Home runs from Gross, Wise lift Carroll over Trimble

    The outdoor temperature was almost better suited for a hockey match-up than a baseball game when the Carroll County Panthers came to do battle with the Trimble County Raiders on the baseball diamond Thursday. Spectators who braved the cold either snuggled in blankets on the aluminum bleachers or huddled by their car heaters as the boys of spring held a frost fest on the field.

    Catcher’s mitts, fielders’ and batters’ gloves were no protection for the lads as heavy, gray clouds cast a gloomy pall over the event.

  • Baseball and tennis fundraiser

    Carroll County High School baseball and tennis teams will hold a chili dinner and a dessert auction as a fundraiser on March 27 from 1-3 p.m.

    The cost is $5 for the dinner at the Family Worship Center located across from Kroger on Hwy. 227.

    For more information, contact Family Worship Center at (502) 732-5418.

  • Wise named preseason All-State

    Carroll County High School senior Zach Wise is one of 56 players in the state selected to the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association’s preseason All-State team.

    “Zach Wise is a special player. To my knowledge, the first ever pre-season All-State (from Carroll County),” head coach Jay Jones said.

  • Experience on doubles teams a major factor for Lady Panthers

    After losing four of seven starters from last year’s team that finished 7-4, including the top three singles players and half of the No. 1 doubles team, it is understandable to consider the following season a “rebuilding” year. However Carroll County girls’ tennis head coach Larry Morgan is optimistic about the 2011 season.

    “I think we’ll be very competitive with the local teams, and as the year goes on, we’ll get better and better,” he said.
