    Carroll County and Spencer County played a game of “Can you do one better?” for 10 innings before Spencer County prevailed, 7-4, Monday, March 23.

    Spencer County scored a run in each of the first two innings against Carroll County starter Alex Burns.

  • Showing their strength
  • CCHS cross country runner Cruz...

    Occasionally, athletics provides a student a possible once in a lifetime opportunity.

    Guillermo Cruz, a Carroll County High School sophomore, has been invited to participate in a cross country meet in Australia this summer.

    The 18th annual event, sponsored by Down Under Sports, invites high school athletes from across the world to compete in the international event.

  • Tennis depending on...

    Add Carroll County’s boys and girls tennis teams to the list of athletic teams experiencing growing pains this spring.

    Even though some of the players have been in the program for a while, head coach Juan Fernandez said both teams are still young, as neither team has any senior players.

    Junior Sarah McArter, who played number one singles last year, leads the girls’ team. She is currently nursing a back injury, but Fernandez said the injury has allowed others to show what they can do.

  • Track team to take this year’s...

    Carroll County track and field starts the 2015 season in transition. The teams will have its third coach in three years, and the team will not have a home meet this season due to the impending athletic field improvement project.

    “The numbers are low this year,” new track and field head coach Ben Crutcher said.

    Crutcher said the coaching changes and no home meets did not make it an inviting sport.
