    The Panthers pulled out a much-needed victory over the Eminence Warriors Friday, winning at home 14-4. The win put an end to a miserable week of three straight losses, including a loss the day before to Henry County in the first round of the NCKC tournament.

    The Warriors’ starting pitcher struggled in the first inning, giving up six runs on two doubles, three walks, one error and three batters hit to the Panther lineup before he was replaced. Relief pitcher Trevor Payton walked two more and gave up two more runs before ending the inning with Carroll up, 8-0.

    Williamstown senior Tori Wilhoit blasted a three-run homerun in the top of the sixth inning to give the Lady Demons (12-14) a 7-3 advantage in their game at Carroll Monday night. That ended up being the difference maker in the game, as the visitors defeated the Lady Panthers, 7-6.

    “The three-run homer, that was the difference in this game, and that’s on my shoulders,” Carroll head coach Ken Blair said. “That’s my inexperience calling a softball game.”

  • Baseball wins tourney

    The Panthers won the SE Kentucky Invitational last weekend in Bell County, Ky.

    In game one Friday, Ethan Stewart struck out nine batters as Carroll defeated host Bell County, 13-5.

    Head coach Jay Jones said the game was closer than the score made it appear. “Bell hit the ball hard all night, just right at us,” he said. “We made plays, and Ethan dominated the bottom half of their lineup.”

    With a three-run lead, Zach Wise hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth to blow the game wide open.
