  • Lady Panthers search for offense

    Carroll County vs. Owen County, a classic district and border-rival battle. In recent years, it also has been a match-up between Carroll’s Hannah Devine and Owen’s Rianna Gayheart. Reigning NCKC Player of the Year, Devine came in a close second behind Gayheart for the 8th Region Player of the Year award. This year was to be the seniors’ last to compete against each other.

  • First quarter woes thwart chance...

    If the first quarter were like the first pancake, the Carroll County Panthers would have been within striking distance of the Owen County Rebels Thursday night, down only 32-29 in the final three quarters of play. Unfortunately, first quarters cannot be thrown out. The Rebels outscored the home team 16-2 in the opening eight minutes, giving them a 48-31 victory.

    “We came out and, for whatever reason, I thought we played a little nervous. We missed a bunch of easy shots,” Carroll head coach Carroll Yager said.

  • Lady Panthers roll over Warriors...

    The Lady Panthers’ defense smothered the Eminence Warriors, forcing 46 turnovers—including 33 steals—as they glided to season-opening 54-17 victory on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

    “We wanted to come out with a lot of intensity and really get after them some and see how good at ball handling they were and see if we could turn them over a lot, and we did,” Carroll head coach Randy Mefford said.

    The Lady Panthers jumped out to a 25-2 advantage after one quarter of play, making a comeback near impossible for the Warriors.

  • Devine stumbles, Lady Panthers...

    The loss of Carroll County’s Top Gun early in the second quarter contributed to a dismal evening for the Lady Panthers en route to a 53-29 win for Trimble County at Bedford Friday.

    Carroll senior Hannah Devine suffered the injury while driving the free throw lane to the basket. Devine suddenly crumpled with a knee injury and left the game with about six-and-a-half minutes remaining in the first half. Devine attempted to return to the game with 4:10 remaining in the half but the pain was too severe to continue.

  • Panthers ‘never stopped...

    Trimble County’s Skiler Alexander toed the charity stripe with 19.4 seconds remaining in a frenzied game with border rival Carroll County—a contest where the momentum had swung back and forth like the pendulum on a grandfather clock. Alexander and his Raiders had watched a 14-point, 57-43 lead gradually disappear over the final five minutes of the game.
