    There were few, if any, empty bleacher seats at Saturday’s “Spring Bash” demolition derby at the Carroll County Fairgrounds. Dozens of others sat and stood in the beds of pickup trucks parked around the arena. Customers lining up at the fair board’s concession stand numbered nearly 100 at any given time during the night. A quick estimate of bleacher seats yielded a count of more than 1,100 spectators on hand for the stand alone event, one of the best attended demolition derbies ever promoted by the locals.

  • Trimble defeats Carroll at boys...

    The News-Democrat

    Border rivals Carroll County Panthers and Trimble County Raiders faced off on the tennis court and the Panthers suffered a loss with less than solid play.

    The team played on their home court Monday, May 4 and went 2-3.

    Josh Kates, a senior, had an uncharacteristic loss. The number one singles player dominated his first set, but had trouble maintaining that blistering pace, according to Fernandez.

    Josh McCarty, an eighth grader played a very good match and has a very bright future as a number one singles player, Fernandez said.
