    Several Carroll County Special Olympics athletes recently went to “Winter Games” sponsored by Special Olympics Kentucky. They competed for medals in the snowshoe and skiing events. The results were:

  • Panthers knocked out of state...

    The Carroll County Panthers gave a valiant effort, but the Cordia Lions were just too big and too fast for them to keep up, winning 72-42 in the first round of the state All “A” tournament Jan. 30 at the Frankfort Civic Center. The Lions would go on to defeat St. Mary and Betsy Layne before falling in the championship game to Newport Central Catholic.

  • Lady Panthers down two players,...

    With two of their top six players out, the Lady Panthers (4-12) hung in with the visiting Switzerland County Pacers (10-5), tied about midway through the third quarter, but were unable to hold on, losing 48-32 Wednesday, Jan. 29.

  • Girls beat Rebels on the road,...

    The Carroll County girls (5-12) held Owen County (0-16) to just one point in the fourth quarter to leave Owenton with a 52-36 win Friday night.

    “We waited until the fourth quarter to start to play, but we took care of business in the end,” head coach Paul Stone said. “I think the first three quarters, the girls were too busy trying not to lose the game and at the end they finally tried to win the game. They got fired up finally in the fourth quarter.”

    Carroll beats Gallatin for first time since ‘09

    A fourth-quarter comeback lifted the Carroll County Panthers over the Gallatin County Wildcats, 57-50, in the first round of the 8th Region All “A” Classic Friday. It was the Panthers’ first win over the Wildcats since Jan. 9, 2009. 

    Carroll played a solid all-around game, shooting 43 percent from the field compared to 34 percent for the Wildcats. They dished out more assists (13-6), picked off more passes (11-4) and committed less turnovers (11-17) than Gallatin.

  • Lady Panthers get team win over...

    After nearly two weeks without playing a game, the Lady Panthers stepped up their defensive effort in the second half to come away with a 55-43 home win over Spencer County Tuesday night.

    “The tale of two halves,” head coach Paul Stone said. “The first half, our defense was OK at times, but it wasn’t good on No. 35 [senior MacKenzie Myers]. The second half, we did a much better job of doubling her on the block. She walked several times because we did a better job of that. That was the difference in the game.”

  • Panthers win All “A” for first...

    Carroll County’s fifth win in a row capped off a great week of basketball by the Panthers. Win number five brought the 8th Region All “A” title back to Carroll County for the first time since 2005. The Panthers defeated Owen County, 42-39, Monday, Jan. 27, at Eminence High School.

    “The boys played hard and listened,” head coach Carroll Yager said. “We had a detailed game plan for each of the games, and they followed the plans perfectly.”

  • Lady Panthers lose in opening...

    Carroll County Lady Panthers held a three-point lead with 1:37 to go, but committed three turnovers and were outscored 8-0 by the Williamstown Lady Demons to ultimately lose 51-46 in the first round of the 8th Region All A Tournament Wednesday, Jan. 15.

    It was the Lady Panthers’ fifth-straight loss to the Lady Demons, with the last win coming Feb. 11, 2011.
