  • Win-win evening for Panthers,...

    The Owen County Rebels ventured into the Panther’s den on Saturday night for a four-game set between the boys and girl’s teams and split the bill, with Carroll County coming away with a win in the boys junior varsity and the girls varsity games.

    A large crowd, nearly filling both sides of the gym, was entertained with a night of great basketball. And each side went home with one JV and one varsity win.  

  • Carroll County loses...

    The Carroll County Panthers headed to Campbellsville to play in the Coca Cola/Campbellsville University Holiday Classic over the Christmas break and lost a heartbreaker in the final game in overtime.

  • Queen of Bluegrass tourney crown...

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers traveled to East Carter High School in Grayson, Ky., to participate in the Queen of the Bluegrass tournament, but couldn’t bring home the crown.

    East Carter’s Lady Radiers  hosted their first-class eight-team tournament Dec. 26-28.  

    “We would like to have finished better than fourth place, but the fact is we competed well in every game and we play in these tournaments to prepare us for play in the Class A and our district tournament,” said Randy Mefford, Lady Panthers’ head coach.

  • Panthers take 3rd in tourney

    The Carroll County High School Panthers burned up the hardwood at  the Gallatin Steel Invitational, winning three of four games played in the tournament hosted by Gallatin County High School during Christmas break.

    The Panthers coasted to victory over Spencer County 58-32, after besting Dayton in the opener, 61-59, in overtime.

    Carroll then met the Iroquois Raiders of Louisville and made a good showing against a very tall, quick and physical team. The Panthers lost, 47-58. The Raiders beat Meade County by 20 points, Spencer County by 37 and Dayton by 39.

  • Lady Panthers host, win NAS...

    The Lady Panthers knocked off two good teams on their march toward a win over Owen County in the North American Stainless Classic on Tuesday, Dec. 23.

    “This was a total team effort,” said Head Coach Randy Mefford. “It was a really hard-fought game, and it was tied at 39-all with three minutes to go. We shut them down, totally, winning the game 46-39. This was some pretty tough competition.”

    Trimble County absolutely tormented Kentucky Country Day when the Raiders played host to the Bearcats Dec. 11. The Raiders came in to the game with focus and ultimately pulled off a big win, 83-59.

    Last winter, Trimble County met KCD on the court but left empty-handed with an overtime loss that may have been won with better concentration at the free throw line. This time around, the team was determined not to make the same mistakes.
