  • Rough first quarter leads to season opening loss to Spencer

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers fell behind 21-5 in the first quarter and were unable to catch up, losing their season and home opener to Spencer County, 63-43.

    “That team scores 10 or 11 deep. They’re a really good team,” head coach Ron Henderson said. “I think if we had had a good first quarter, it would have been tough to beat them, but we would have been in it. You give up 20 points in the first quarter, we couldn’t do anything, and got down in a hole.”

  • Football season ends in playoffs at Glasgow

    Despite a lopsided final score, 51-8, Carroll County had its fair share of opportunities against Glasgow High School Friday night in the second round of the 2A playoffs.

    On Carroll’s first drive of the game, the Panthers were forced to punt on fourth and one. The snap flew over quarterback/punter Andre Mumphrey’s head, but he was able to scramble for a first down. Unfortunately, the drive resulted in a punt four plays later.

    With Carroll County High School hosting its first playoff football game since 2002, Carrollton Police Chief Mike Willhoite decided he needed to enlist some extra patrol. He turned to CCHS alum Damon Maines, who dreamed of being a police officer.

    “Damon has always been attracted to the guys at football and basketball games,” Willhoite said. “All the guys got to know him, and he expressed interest in being a police officer. [It was] just the opportunity for a home football game during the playoffs to make that happen.”
