    The visiting Carroll County Panthers netted 33 of their 44 first half points from downtown en route to spoiling the Trimble County Raiders’ season home opener Dec. 5, 70-59.

    “I think we were 11 for 20 from three at the half. That’s lights out shooting right there,” Panthers head coach Carroll Yager said following the game. “We don’t normally shoot the ball that well.”

    With a second year under their belts in head coach Paul Stone’s system and losing no seniors to graduation last season, the Lady Panthers will look to improve upon their 7-20 record last season.

    “That is one positive to not having any seniors is because you have the same players back,” Stone said.

    Having a new coach, a new system and no seniors on the team was difficult for the girls last season, and on him, Stone said. This year’s team will be better because the girls now have varsity experience and understand the system.

    Carroll County boys basketball head coach Carroll Yager said last season will be one where he will always wonder, “What if.” Five experienced seniors led the team, which was poised for success, but the season was plagued with injuries. Still, the team managed to come together and finish the season with a winning record, 16-12 overall, 9-9 in the 8th Region and 3-6 in the 31st District.

    Yager said he was really proud of the team last year and had a great group of seniors.

    The Carroll County boys basketball team took the lead over the visiting Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts with 4:34 remaining in the first quarter, and the Panthers never looked back, cruising to a 60-32 victory Tuesday, Dec. 3.  

    “I thought for the first game, defensively, we played really well. We played with active feet, active hands,” head coach Carroll Yager said. The Panthers forced 18 turnovers, including 11 steals – six by senior Jacob Wise– and held the visitors to just 25 percent shooting from the field.

    Commonwealth Stadium has been missing something for years.

    Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart hasn’t been able to put his finger on it, it’s just a feeling.

    “When I drive up from the outside now, it’s not what I wanted it to feel like,” he said recently in an exclusive interview with a group of reporters from the Herald-Leader, Louisville Courier-Journal and The Associated Press.
