  • SPRING SPORTS PREVIEW: TENNIS

    Trimble’s net teams are hoping for an exciting tennis season this spring after what Coach Vanita Fogle called “an adjusting and learning year” in 2010. The veteran coach returns as girls’ mentor and adds the responsibility of helming the boys’ tennis program.

    “The boys’ team had two to graduate last year with the rest of the boys being freshman,” Fogle said. “They will be bringing back a lot of good experience and ability they matured with from last year. I am looking forward to coaching the boys.”

  • SPRING SPORTS PREVIEW: BASEBALL

    Trimble County Head Baseball Coach Frank Ragland is hoping to build on the accomplishments of last year’s “building season” after guiding a young Raider team to a 9-20 record. Trimble’s 2011 incarnation of the “boys of spring” features only three seniors but includes a wealth of talent from a group of players who earned valuable experience under fire a year ago.

  • SPRING SPORTS PREVIEW: TRACK

    Look for Trimble County High School’s track program to ascend to a new level of achievement in 2011. Head Coach Jeff Vincent is very positive about both the girls’ and the boys’ track programs.

    “I’m pumped about this season,” he said in answering a preseason questionnaire. “Our goals include winning the NCKC, NCKTC, and Regional Championship and sending as many kids as possible to the state meet. Not only do we want to make it to state, we want to make noise there too. It should be a very fun season.”

  • Trimble suffers shivering loss

    The outdoor temperature was almost better suited for a hockey match-up than a baseball game when the Carroll County Panthers came to do battle with the Trimble County Raiders on the baseball diamond Thursday.

    Spectators who braved the cold either snuggled in blankets on the aluminum bleachers or huddled by their car heaters as the boys of spring held a frost fest.

    Catcher’s mitts, fielders’ and batters’ gloves were no protection for the lads as heavy, gray clouds cast a gloomy pall over the event.

  • Raiders open diamond season with win

    The Trimble County Raiders opened the 2011 baseball campaign with a 4-0 shutout over Owen County on March 22. Josh Baker drove in two runs with a double in the second inning to give the Raiders the early lead. Trimble added two runs in the fourth inning for the final tally.

    “It was a good outing defensively,” Trimble Head Coach Frank Ragland said. “We made the plays we needed. We were alert and talking to each other.”
