As the long-time boys golf coach at Carroll County High School, Warren McEuen doesn’t mind saying he taught some of the parents of the boys on his team when they were in high school.

“This is a young team,” McEuen said. His two oldest players are juniors this year; many of their teammates are in middle school.  

And because he is planning to retire in about three years, McEuen knows he will not see some of his youngest players make it to their senior year.

But McEuen said he is glad to see the young players out on the links. Boys golf has not had a lot of participation for the past several years, he said.

So far, the team has played four matches. They have not yet had a victory, but the coach believes they are on the verge of changing that.

“They have already proven themselves to be hard workers, and are making the effort to improve,” he said.

So far this season the Panthers have played Henry County, with a final score of 227-176.

Thier closest match this season has been against Owen County, with a very close final score of 214-211.   Williamstown won out over the Panthers by a score of 222-205, and the Panthers also fell to the Trimble County Raiders, 228-188.  

The Panthers take on the Wildcats of Gallatin County at Sugar Bay golf course today, Wednesday, Aug. 27. On Thursday, they meet on Cardinal Hills Golf Course in Bedford, Ky., for the North Central Kentucky Conference Class A tournament.
