  • Carroll takes victory with ease over rival Trimble

    The neighboring county rivalry between the Carroll County Panthers and the Trimble County Raiders took on extra meaning for both teams Thursday night.

    And it was indeed those former Raiders that came up with the large plays when it counted Thursday, leading Carroll to a runaway 13-0 victory.


    Carroll County Lady Panthers’ magical softball run continued as they won their first Eighth Region All “A” championship with a 12-6 win over Williamstown.

    Andrea Searcy continued her dominance in the pitching circle as she powered the Lady Panthers to three wins, striking a total of 42, walking only four batters and giving up 14 hits. Carroll allowed eight runs in the tournament, but only one run was earned.

    Devine, a 2012 CCHS graduate and recent inductee into the Athletic Wall of Fame, has the playing background to know what it takes to win.
