  • Lady Panthers fend off comeback...

    The motto for the night seemed to be ‘Whistle first, ask questions later’ in the match-up between the Lady Panthers and the Lady Jaguars of Cooper High School. The two teams committed a total of 45 fouls—25 on Cooper, 20 on Carroll—and shot a combined 61 free throw shots. But it was Carroll County’s ability to knock them down in the waning minutes that sealed the win for them at home, 68-62, Monday night.

  • Panthers’ ‘best game’ falls...

    The Carroll County Panthers enjoyed a six-point advantage in the waning seconds of the third quarter Monday in what head coach Carroll Yager called “the best game we’ve played.” But miscues over the final eight minutes of play allowed Louisville Collegiate to escape with a 56-53 victory when a three-point Ethan Stewart field goal attempt rimmed out at the final buzzer.


    “I was pleased with our guys,” Yager said. “We’ve made tremendous improvement.”

    The mascot moniker is a misnomer. While Ashland Blazer’s boys’ basketball team is known as the Tomcats, their coed equivalents are known on the basketball court as the Kittens. But in Wednesday’s title matchup of the North American Stainless/Carroll County Tourism Basketball Classic, these Kittens fought like alley cats in what local fans hoped would be a real cat fight with the Carroll County Lady Panthers.
