    The Lady Panthers had good times and bad times during home games last week against Oldham County and Trimble County.

    On Thursday, Sept. 25, the Carroll County High School team worked long and hard, but lost to Oldham County, 25-13 and 25-9.  Oldham is the No. 1 seed in the district.

    But it was good practice as they prepare for the upcoming Class A state tournament.

  • Boys golf team takes 7-0 record...

    Trimble County boys golf looked great as they headed into this week’s regional tournament.

    With a record of 7-0 for the season, the future looked promising when the team met on the green at Kenton County’s The Willows golf course Sept. 29.

    Ranked one of the hardest courses in the state, Raider players discovered why The Willows back 9 is said to be among the top 3 toughest in the state.

    Despite not claiming a region victory, the boys golf team, like other Raider athletic clubs, did not go down without a fight Monday.

    Like always, when the Trimble County Raiders and the Gallatin County Wildcats, district rivals, face off on the gridiron, you can almost always expect a nose grinding, very physical, great defensive game.

    This is similar to last year’s playoff game at Gallatin County and exactly what the fans got again this last week.

    On Friday September 19, 2008 the Raiders traveled to Gallatin, but came up short once again, losing 15-6.

    Endurance is the name of the game in cross country, and D’Anthony Collins proved he is a champion in that category running 3.1 miles in under 20 minutes.

    Collins completed that feat after attending football practice for three hours that same afternoon.

    Only runners from cross-country powerhouses Walton Verona and Trimble County crossed the finish line ahead of Collins.

    The boys and girls teams each finished fourth out of the eight teams entered in each division.

    Pitting many of the top teams in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky together, meant the Trinity/Valkyrie Invitational was one of the best races in the country. Teams such as #1 ranked Carmel (IN), # 3 Centerville (OH), #1 Trinity (KY), #1 Asssumption (KY) and other nationally and state ranked teams lined up at Tom Sawyer Park.

    Getting a college education can be a daunting task, but Lyndsey Bevill is achieving that by playing her way through Northern Kentucky University on a golf scholarship.

    While a student at Carroll County High School, Bevill was known for her tough defense and soft shot off the glass as a member of the Lady Panther basketball team. But in the fall, she also played golf under the tutelage of coaches Pam and Brad McNeal and Randy Mefford.
