  • Second-half comeback too late for Carroll in loss to Gallatin Co.

    After an ugly first half, the Panthers showed some fight in the second half against the visiting Gallatin County Wildcats. But it was too late for the Panthers to make a comeback, losing 62-45 Dec. 16.

    Head coach Brian Crank said he did not have his team ready to play in the first half, but after making some adjustments at halftime, the team came out and played hard.

  • Carroll forces 22 turnovers, but struggles offensively

    Carroll came out against Henry County on a hot streak, connecting on six of their first eight shots. The trouble was the Wildcats started almost just as hot. Down 16-11, Henry ended the quarter on a 7-1 run and took one-point lead into the second quarter. The Panthers were outscored every quarter–including scoring just nine points in both the second and third quarters–falling 61-46 in the 31st District battle.

    After the game, Carroll head coach Brian Crank took responsibility for his team’s loss.

  • Gallatin defeats Carroll, 65-34

    Carroll County Lady Panther’s scored first in the 31st District matchup with Gallatin County Dec. 17, but it would be its only lead as Gallatin rolled to 65-34 win.

    Both teams struggled to score in the early going as it took over a minute and a half before Amelia Napier scored to give Carroll first points of the game.

  • Lady Panthers pick up district win over Henry

    It wasn’t always pretty, but the Carroll County Lady Panthers played well enough to earn their first win of the season–and more importantly a district win–defeating Henry County 48-22 Dec. 14.

  • Lady Panthers open home schedule with loss to South

    Poor passing and missed shots near the basket were the main areas in need of improvement after the Carroll County Lady Panthers’ home opening loss against South Oldham, 64-39.

    The visiting Lady Dragons got off to a quick start, building a 10-0 lead. The Lady Panthers committed five turnovers in the stretch–three from the South Oldham press. Carroll’s first points came from sophomore center Amelia Napier, who was fouled making a move in the post and sank both free throws with 4:27 left in the first quarter.

  • Carroll stays close through three quarters, but Trimble pulls away

    A balanced offensive effort and a lesson in patience resulted in a successful outcome for the Trimble County Lady Raiders Friday in their annual border rivalry tussle with Carroll County. While the Lady Panthers made a close contest of it for three quarters, it was Trimble taking the eventual win by a 53-35 score.

    “Our girls played a great game,” Carroll coach Paul Stone, Jr., said. “The effort was spectacular. I can’t say enough good things about the way that they played. If we keep playing that hard we’re going to win some games.”
