  • Baseball Panthers look to repeat last season’s success

    Losing 10 seniors in one year should be devastating to a program the following year in any sport. That would especially be true for a group that played a large part in the team finishing 20-11 and winning the “triple crown” — All-A tournament, the conference tournament and the district tournament.

    However, talk to Carroll County High School baseball head coach Jay Jones, and you will find that he’s not concerned.

  • Sheriff warns of scam calls

    The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office received several calls last week from citizens who were contacted via telephone regarding credit cards. It appears this activity is a scam, Sheriff Jamie Kinman said in a news release.
    The typical scenario involves a person receiving a telephone call from a number that appears to be local. The number often appears on caller ID boxes with a 732 exchange and sometimes has a name associated with the number. Upon answering the phone, a solicitation is begun regarding a person’s ability to obtain lower credit card interest rates.

  • Track competes in first meet

    The Carroll County Panthers were in action for the first time this season last weekend. The Panthers competed at US Bank Arena in Maysville, Ky. at an indoor meet against 20 teams from across the state. 

    The Panthers had a great showing in their first meet with the girls’ team taking 9th place out of 19 teams behind a strong showing by sophomore Nora Fremin in the 55 meter dash (third place) and 55 meter hurdles (fourth place) and by senior MaryEsther Fremin in the long jump (fifth place), according to head coach Joe Creager.

  • South Oldham too strong for Panthers

    The Eighth Region’s top high school boys’ cage program in the form of the South Oldham Dragons put on a basketball clinic par excellence at Carroll County High School on Tuesday and in the process handed the Panthers a 75-34 defeat.

    Panther head coach Carroll Yager said he hoped the game will help his team, especially the younger players who will make up the Panther teams of tomorrow, learn what it takes to compete at the state level.
