  • Trimble tunes up for holiday trip with win over Bellevue

    Trimble County Lady Raiders coach Kerrie Stewart didn’t know what to expect when her team hosted Bellevue Thursday. Her team had battled hard in their road trip to Bellevue a year ago. The Lady Tigers, however, lost most of last year’s team to graduation and were forced to field a varsity starting lineup that included three eighth graders. The end result was a 63-31 breeze for the Lady Raiders.

  • Rebels riddle Raiders, 43-20

    A game plan of deliberate slowed-down offense was well executed in the early stages of Trimble County’s outing with regional power Owen County on Dec. 6, but Trimble’s inability to generate points on the scoreboard proved to be the Raiders’ downfall. Owen eventually pulled away in the second half to score a 43-20 win.

  • Raiders eclipse Shawe’s Hilltoppers in see-saw battle

    Clutch free throw shooting down the stretch gave Trimble County a 50-44 win over Shawe’s Hilltoppers in a game which was much tighter than the final score would indicate.

    “It was a great game back and forth,” Trimble Coach John Leep III said following the exciting game. “Both teams are really similar—heavily guard oriented. It was a fun game to coach in. The players really enjoyed getting to play against a border rival.”
