    The Lady Panthers struggled serving in game three and were unable to pull out a victory in their home opener, losing to Grant County, 2-1, Aug. 20.

    Carroll County opened their 2014 season with a hard fought 47-34 win over the visiting Pendleton County Wildcats.

    After the game, which wasn’t decided until after the final Pendleton County possession, head coach Mike Weedman told his team that they took a huge step forward. “You are a young team that stepped up in an emotional game,” he said. “… We still have a lot of work to do, and we still have to get a lot better.”

    With all but one runner who scored toward the team total returning, Carroll County High School cross country teams hope to build on last season’s success.

    “I think the boys team can be good,” second-year head coach Brian Crank said. The Panthers finished in third place last year at the NCKC meet, but was the first school to have a complete team cross the finish line. Unfortunately, the runners were too far back. But Crank said he expects the boys to improve this year.

  • Young Lady Panthers will gain...

    After graduating eight seniors, including seven members of the program’s first four-year class, the Lady Panthers soccer team will be inexperienced this season. Led by five seniors, including team captains Teresa Garrett and Satori Drake, the team has seven juniors, five sophomores, three eighth graders and seven seventh graders.

  • Panthers boast strong defense,...

    This year’s soccer Panthers are probably the best passers in head coach Ben Crutcher’s tenure and will return a lot of experience, particularly on defense. But the key to Carroll County’s success this season will be finding someone to step up and put the ball in the back of the net.

     “The big question is who is going to score goals after losing Michael Hall,” Crutcher said. Hall graduated last year as the program’s all-time leading scorer, netting 36 last season and 70 goals in his career.
