  • Volleyball sets high goals for...

    Expectations are high for the Lady Panthers volleyball team after winning their first-ever 31st District championship last season. But the girls are determined and more than ready for the challenge and to surpass it, aiming for an 8th Region championship, first-year head coach Lynn Eaglin said.

  • Youthful experience leads golf...

    After a summer of practicing and playing pick-up games with friends, the Panthers golf team is ready to take on the competition. 

    Looking at the roster, the team may be young – the Panthers have just two seniors, Nick Aulbach and first-year player Gabe Kates – but it is full of talented players, head coach Josh Mefford said.

  • Alumni, friends of program...

    The Carroll County High School soccer teams hosted alumni games Saturday, Aug. 3. It was the first ever alumni game for the girls program and the sixth annual for the boys. 

    In the girls match, the alumni won, 8-0. While the score may have appeared one-sided, head coach Greg Damron was pleased with the way his team hung with the alumni, which included five college players.

    Former Lady Panthers assistant coach Lillian Scott scored two goals, while Victoria Paytner and Bre Smith also scored two goals. Lidia Jimenez and Nikki Hill each scored.

  • Preparing for battle

    Carroll County High School football held their annual training camp July 29-31, at Happy Hills Christian Service Camp in Carroll County.

    “Best training camp we’ve ever had, by far, and we’ve still got another day,” head coach Mike Weedman said Tuesday, July 30. The players have had a great attitude, good work ethic and have not complained once, he said.

    “They’re tired, beat up and sore and they’re not complaining,” Weedman said. “I’m so proud of this bunch.”

  • Panthers poised to defend titles

    The Panthers soccer team looks to defend its 31st District and NCKC Conference titles this season. The team boasts a good balance of both experience – five seniors anchor the team – and youthful talent, however the bench will be shallow. 

    “The upside on low numbers is we have more quality players than quantity,” head coach Ben Crutcher said. The team has about 25 players. While there are few middle school players, some have never played soccer before.

  • Ladies change things up in...

    The Lady Panthers soccer team will be changing up its style of play this season after three years of relying heavily on its defensive line.

    Over the past three years, the team has depended on the defensive line to be the backbone and feed the ball forward, he said. This year, the team still has a great defensive line, but head coach Greg Damron said he wants to give the midfield more responsibility. The team also will switch to a stopper/sweeper formation. The goal is to control the ball more and translate that into wins.

  • Lady Panthers golf team ready to...

    The Carroll County High School golf teams have a new home this season: Fairway Golf Course in Wheatly, Ky. and Perry Park Country Club in Perry Park, Ky.

    Athletic Director Paul Stone said Tuesday that the matches moved from General Butler State Resort Park because Fairway and Perry Park offer more holes – 18 at Fairway and 27 at Perry Park – as well as a driving range, both of which are beneficial to the players. It also was easier to schedule matches there.

  • Rockin’ Out!

    Paragon Arts and Music Academy held its Rock Star Dance Camp July 15-19. Every day was dedicated to a different rock star: Taylor Swift, Victoria Justice, Shake It Up, Rock Star Barbie and Fresh Beat Barbie. The girls learned a new dance every day and performed a rock concert for their parents at the end of camp. Campers also worked on rock star-themed crafts, modeled for a photo shoot, made music videos and sang karaoke. At the end of the week, each camper received a certificate, goody bag and rock star t-shirt.
