  • After hard-fought battle,...

    It was a night of tension and excitement Monday as border rivals, the Carroll County Lady Panthers and the Trimble County Lady Raiders, battled in high school volleyball for the third time this season. While the earlier games had been close, Monday’s match was a nail-biter as Carroll threatened to end Trimble’s lengthy win streak over North Central Kentucky Conference foes—a streak that dates back to 2010. In the end, the Lady Raiders rallied from behind to win the match 2 games to 1 (25-21, 15-25, 26-24).

    It was the team’s fourth straight win, improving its record to 10-11 overall, 8-8 in the region and 6-3 in districts.

  • Carroll golf teams finish season...

    The Panthers golf team traveled to Boone Links in Boone County Monday, while the Lady Panthers headed just up the road to Eagle Creek in Gallatin County Tuesday to compete in the Regional Tournament.

    The boys competed against 16 schools on a course that was about 600 yards longer than Fairway Golf Course – about 6,700 yards compared to 6,100 – head coach Josh Mefford said. “They did really well,” he said, noting the boys also played from the pro or championship tees.

  • Turnovers topple Panthers’ hopes...

    Four first half turnovers doomed Carroll County’s chances Friday against Walton-Verona, as the Bearcats won, 48-21.

    The Panthers fumbled the ball twice, and quarterback John Michael Adams threw two interceptions. “We had a lot of turnovers in the first half that we couldn’t overcome,” head coach Mike Weedman said Tuesday.

  • Carroll earns district No. 1...

    The Carroll County boys soccer team sits atop the 31st District heap heading into the district tournament. The Panthers defeated Henry County, 5-0, on the road Monday to clinch the No. 1 seed. They will take on the No. 4 seed on Monday, Oct. 14, in the tournament.

    Who they will play will be determined Thursday, Oct. 3, when Owen County takes on Henry at home. The winner will become the No. 2 seed, while the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds will be determined by a coin flip.

  • Panthers play tough against...

    The final score is not a true indicator of what really happened Tuesday night between the Carroll County and Simon Kenton boys soccer teams. The Panthers may have lost 5-3 to the visitors from Northern Kentucky, but the home team played tough the entire night against their much bigger opponent. Not only is Simon Kenton a 6A-size school in football, many of its players are more than a head taller than the Carroll County players.

  • Girls soccer honors first four-...

    The Carroll County High School girls soccer team celebrated a momentous occasion Saturday night against Cooper High School, as eight seniors played in the final home game. Seven of the eight have been with the program since it separated from the boys team, making this the first four-year class of seniors. The seven four-year seniors are Angel Carbajal, Carley Hunter, Sierra Martinez, Alex Skirvin, Nicki States, Kaylin Wallace and Aleshia Winburn. Fellow senior Kayla Anderson is a two-year player.
