  • Tennis depending on underclassmen this season

    Add Carroll County’s boys and girls tennis teams to the list of athletic teams experiencing growing pains this spring.

    Even though some of the players have been in the program for a while, head coach Juan Fernandez said both teams are still young, as neither team has any senior players.

    Junior Sarah McArter, who played number one singles last year, leads the girls’ team. She is currently nursing a back injury, but Fernandez said the injury has allowed others to show what they can do.

  • Track team to take this year’s show on the road

    Carroll County track and field starts the 2015 season in transition. The teams will have its third coach in three years, and the team will not have a home meet this season due to the impending athletic field improvement project.

    “The numbers are low this year,” new track and field head coach Ben Crutcher said.

    Crutcher said the coaching changes and no home meets did not make it an inviting sport.

  • Basketball action
  • Young Lady Panthers hope to shock some teams during 31st District play

    Young, young and even younger describes the 2015 edition of the Carroll County Lady Panthers softball team.

    Carroll returns two starters from last year’s team, senior Mackenzi Hawkins and sophomore Haley Dermon.

    Six seniors graduated and with two players deciding not to play softball this year, the faces on the field will be quite different.

  • All-Tournament Team
  • Three seniors lead squad aiming to repeat last year’s success

    Success for this season’s Panthers baseball team will hinge on how quickly younger players can fill the roles vacated by last season’s large senior class.

    Carroll County graduated six seniors–four starters and two key role players–and lost another starter after he chose to focus on another sport.

    Lauren Moore, Miranda Groseclose, Haley Dermon and Evan McMahan were named to the 31st District All-Tournament Team.

  • Game over: Lady Panthers’ season ends in regional loss to Shelby Co.

    Shelby County’s full-court press proved too much to handle for Carroll County as the Lady Rockets defeated the Lady Panthers, 66-34, in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament Tuesday, March 3, hosted by Carroll County High School.

    Tied 11-11 after the first quarter, the Lady Panthers were held without a field goal in the second, going 3-6 from the free throw line, and found themselves in a 20-point hole at the half.
