    It was a game that, while running the gamut of emotions, gave each team an opportunity to give the spectators a clinic to demonstrate the excellence of both an offensive effort for one and a defensive effort for the other. In the end, Carroll County took home the laurels of the second round of the annual border rivalry match-up with the Trimble County Raiders. Final score: 73-65.

  • Teams set rivalry aside for one...

    Good sportsmanship is still alive and well in Carroll and Trimble counties.

    Despite being border rivals, the two teams put aside their differences for the betterment of one of their own.

    Carroll County senior Dallas Gibson was well on his way to hitting the magical 1,000-point mark for his high school career. Averag-ing 19.5 points per game, along with 10.4 rebounds per game, he was just 13 points away from reaching 1,000 points.

  • Rebel ‘O’ too much for Panthers

    Owen County’s inside-outside offensive attack was too much for Carroll County to handle, as the Panthers fell 60-42 at home Thursday, Jan. 31.

    Rebel sharp shooter senior Zach Ripy connected on six 3-pointers, leading Owen County (18-5) with 22 points, while freshman Carson Williams pounded the inside for 16 points and 12 rebounds.

    Panthers (13-9) head coach Carroll Yager said he thought his team played well in the first half, but after a couple of bad possessions to start the third quarter, his team had dug themselves into a hole.

  • Stone: Team shows growth in Owen...

    Lady Panthers head coach Paul Stone said he does not believe in moral victories. But that does not mean he has turned a blind eye to all of the progress his team has made since their last match up with Owen County.

    Despite losing 53-33 Thursday, Jan. 31, to the visiting Lady Rebels, the young Lady Panthers showed how much they had grown since their visit to Owenton Dec. 7. In that game, the Lady Panthers never had a chance, falling behind big in the first half in what would be a 42-point loss.

  • Track issues to be addressed...

    Carroll County High School home track meets were canceled this season. But less than 12 hours later, they were back on again.

    Head coach Joe Creager sent out an e-mail at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, announcing the cancellation due to issues with the track: “There are several issues on the track that have caused the home meets scheduled for this season to be canceled. We will not reschedule. Thank you.”
