    Talent abundant

    for boy’s tennis

    Talent is abundant among members of the Carroll County boy’s tennis team, but its coach says players are just lacking in confidence this season.

    “Tennis is a head game; we see that a lot with professionals,” head coach Juan Fernandez  said in a recent interview.

    A former Carroll County student has been named to the 2008-09 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Scholar Athlete team.

    Brett Miller, a 2006 graduate from Carroll County High School and former member of the Panther basketball team is currently a student/athlete at Union College in Barbourville, Ky.  

    He was named to the Division I and II men’s basketball Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete team in March, according to a press release from the college.

    Ten seniors as well as all girls and boys basketball teams and squads were honored at the winter sports banquet Monday night with a dinner, awards ceremony and coaches remarks.

  • Panthers compete in first track...

    The Carroll County track team recently competed in the Mason-Dixon Indoor Games at Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Ky., and did very well for their first meet.

    The girls' team is especially young; with only eight members present for the meet, five of whom were freshman. The girls 4x200 team made up of Mary Esther Fremin, Amanda Thurlow, Andie Hardesty, and Teila Winburn took 8th place in a very controversial race.

  • McHargue works to rebuild team

    A lot of success that happens within the foul-ball boundary lines in fast-pitch softball has a lot to do with the pitching and catching.

    Trimble County High School Lady Raiders softball Head Coach Walter McHargue, as of right now, said he believes his ptichers and catchers aren’t up to the standards he wants. But, he says, if they continue to work hard, they will be ready to go by March 26 season open at home against the North Oldham Lady Mustangs.

  • Chism replaces Poynter as TCHS...

    After four very productive seasons as Trimble County High School’s head football coach, Johnny Poynter took a new coaching job at a high school closer to home.

    Poynter resigned his coaching position in January, but continues to teach at the high school.

    Under Poynter’s direction, Trimble snapped a 27-game losing streak, getting in a couple wins in the 2005 season, setting the tone for the next three seasons to come.

    Dreams of a state-championship victory were shattered in the third year, when quarterback David Bird was injured.

  • Trimble County Youth League...

    This is a reminder for all the youngsters that plan on playing tee-ball, Minor League, and Little League this year for the Trimble Co. Youth League. There is still time to get your sign-up forms in. Our try-outs will begin at noon on March 14. We plan on having the try-outs at the Trimble County Park, weather permitting. If bad weather (rain), the try-outs will be at the Bedford Fire House, behind the Bedford Bank. Please give enough time to check the park first, even if it rained in the morning.

  • Failure teaches important life...

    The days are getting longer and warmer, and spring sports are just getting started as basketball, the winter sport, is finishing up.

    A trip over to the Carroll County High School ballfields last week found the baseball team grooming their field, the softball team practicing, members of the track team working on their various events and the girls tennis team dodging the gaping cracks on the court as they practiced.

  • Fans' misbehavior didn&...

    The Lady Panthers may have been out-scored and out-sized in the 8th Region tournament, but the girls and their Carroll County fans outclassed Anderson County, hands down.

    High school sports should bring out the best in competition, and good sportsmanship; occasionally it does just the opposite. That was the case Monday night when CCHS played Anderson County at South Oldham High School.

    A group of about a dozen Anderson County roughnecks sitting on the Carroll County side of the gym harangued and harassed the Lady Panthers the entire game.

  • Carroll girls lose district...

    In the championship game of the 31st District tournament, Carroll County’s Lady Panthers lost in double overtime to Owen County by a mere 30-38.

    The Lady Panthers had trouble all night with turnovers, fouls and shots not falling.  

    The Lady Rebels jumped out to an early lead, by scoring eight unanswered points, the Lady Panthers knotted the score at nine by the end of the first quarter.

    At the end of regulation, the score was tied at 21, proving that neither team was lighting anything up.
