  • Trimble Track Roundup

    Records set at Shelby


    Trimble County’s track team had a “very impressive night” in the March 29 Shelby County All-Comers Meet in Shelbyville, according to Coach Jeff Vincent. New school records were set by Olivia Cooley in the Long Jump and Kelsie Courtney in the High Jump.


    Team members registered 19 personal best performances, claimed four first place finishes and scored 35 top eight finishes.
    Individual results for the Raiders are as follows.

  • Rebels romp Raiders in ‘sorry’ game

    “It was simply inexcusable what went down today!”

    Trimble County Coach Frank Ragland’s displeasure with his team’s performance was quite evident throughout Saturday’s baseball outing at Southwestern in Hanover. The Raiders led briefly but were stunned 14-7 in the Rebels’ season opener.

    “We didn’t hit the ball. We didn’t field the ball. We didn’t throw the ball. We didn’t catch the ball. It’s as simple as that,” Ragland said following the game.

  • Trimble drops rival game in final inning

    Trimble County Coach Walter McHargue lamented that his team couldn’t hold border rival Carroll County after the Lady Raiders let a three-run advantage evaporate and fell 8-7 in Carrollton Friday.

    Carroll lost to Trimble three times last year, twice during the regular season and during the All-A tournament, by a combined run total of 24-5. 

    Trimble opened the game with a 1-0 lead in the first inning, but Carroll roared out of the gate in the bottom of the third to take a 4-1 lead.

  • SPRING SPORTS PREVIEW

    Trimble County Lady Raiders Coach Walter McHargue hopes his young softball team can quickly mature into a well-oiled machine and win some ballgames.

    In an interview following Trimble’s third loss in four outings McHargue said his team has two returning seniors—Raegan Black and Jana Dunlap—from last year’s team that finished the season with a 12-17 record.

  • Tennis teams open season with wins

    The Lady Raiders girls’ tennis team had a great start with the first tennis match of the season by bringing home a match win of 4-1 against Shelby County Rockets.

  • 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.”

  • Howdyshell signs to run for Campbellsville

    Trimble County High School standout runner Kyle Howdyshell has signed to run cross country at Campbellsville University next year. The signing came during a reception in the TCHS library Wednesday. Howdyshell and his mother, Lori Smith, were joined by coaches and members of the cross country and track teams for the event.

  • Girls win Wolverine Open at Western Hills Friday

    Trimble County’s track stars enjoyed a big day Friday in the Wolverine Open at Western Hills. Trimble’s girls’ won the 16-school meet while the boys finished 12th of 16.

    “This was our first big time win for the Trimble County track program,” Coach Jeff Vincent said.
    School records were set by Kelsie Courtney in the pole vault and 300m Hurdles, and by Chelsey Sparks in the 200m. Trimble team members recorded 28 personal best performances.
