    “That was probably the most amazing I have ever seen them all play together as a group,” head coach Greg Damron said. “We’ve always had one or two girls really always be that spotlight, but tonight, everybody was involved, everybody was making their plays.”

    Carroll County head coach Mike Weedman summed it up best: “Too many mistakes, too many mistakes we couldn’t overcome.”

    The Panthers committed four turnovers, turned the ball over on downs three times and were penalized eight times for 60 yards, contributing to a 48-13 district loss to Gallatin County on Homecoming night.

    “Our guys hate it. They’ve never lost to Gallatin County,” Weedman said. “Hats off to Gallatin County. They’re a good team.”

    It was a night of tension and excitement Monday as border rivals, the Carroll County Lady Panthers and the Trimble County Lady Raiders, battled in high school volleyball for the third time this season.

In the end, the Lady Raiders rallied from behind to win the match 2 games to 1 (25-21, 15-25, 26-24).
