    While it does not show on the scoreboard, the Lady Panthers soccer team is showing improvement. Carroll County met a formidable opponent Aug. 27, in the Grant County Lady Braves and lost 11-1.

    “Very proud of the girls for the simple fact that while the scores have not been great they, as a team, have really kept their composure and their attitudes are really in check,” head coach Greg Damron said. “They’re really positive. Even though we got beat by 10, they didn’t get down on themselves.”

  • Lady Panthers drop match to Lady...

    The Collins Lady Titans jumped out early on the Lady Panthers in both games, winning the match Aug. 27, 25-13, 25-19.

    “Tonight, my team lacked drive. Our covering was not where it needed to be because they had a really good outside hitter, [senior Michaela Staudemire,]” head coach Lynn Eaglin said. “I believe she got six kills per game on us, and we just weren’t in our spots.”

    Collins took off in game one with a 6-0 lead, and the Lady Panthers were not able to catch up.

    “We can’t win with six turnovers,” head coach Mike Weedman said Tuesday.

    Big plays also kept the Panthers out of the game, as the Wildcats converted on numerous third downs to keep the drive alive. Weedman said they ran a lot of sweep plays around the edges, something the Panthers need to improve on defending moving forward.

    The Panthers golf team finished 12th out of 17 teams in the fourth annual Bulldog Classic Saturday, hosted by John Hardin High School.

We will take what we learned and use it to make us better for the next.”
