    Three, two, one, one and zero. That’s the number of games Carroll County High School’s spring sports teams have been able to play since the season opened March 15. Flooding and torrential rains, snow showers and freezing temperatures–it’s been an unusual spring so far to say the least.

    The Lady Panthers softball team has yet to see live action this season because of the weather.
