    EDITOR’S NOTE: The following preview of the Trimble County High School girls’ basketball season was compiled from a series of Head Coach Kerrie Stewart’s answers to a list of emailed questions regarding the upcoming season. The Trimble County Lady Raiders opened the 2012-13 season at home against Gallatin County Monday night.

    Special to The Trimble Banner

    I am very excited about the 2013 season. This year’s players have good basketball instincts, they like to play hard and fast.

  • Trimble topped by Gallatin, 65-58

    A very young group of Trimble County Lady Raiders weathered an onslaught of long-range guns Monday night and threw a scare into visiting Gallatin County as the 2012-13 high school basketball season got underway. Trailing by 11 at halftime, Trimble roared back to pull within a pair of points several times in the second half before falling by a 65-58 final score.

    While Gallatin’s long-range artillery misfired most of the night – the Lady Cats were only one of 21 shots from downtown – the game within the arc made the difference.

  • 6th grade Raiders open with win

    The 2012-2013 season got underway for the 6th grade Trimble County boys in a border war with Carroll County. The Raiders started where they left off last year with a big win 33-12. A balanced scoring attack and some excellent rebounding led Trimble to the easy win. Scoring leaders were Dane Lacefield, Shane Mills and David Duncan with 6 points each, Logan Clifford and Evan Stevens with 5 points, Grant Weaver and Andrew Edmondson with 2 points and Duncan Ralston with 1 point. Ben Stevens had 3 rebounds and 2 steals.

  • Youth Tackle Raiders claim...

    Special to The Trimble Banner

    The Trimble County Youth Tackle Football League ended the season in a bittersweet fashion.

    The Junior Varsity Raiders beat the Campbellsburg Bengals 19-12 on Saturday to earn the right to play Sunday in the championship game against the Eminence Warriors 20-13. The game was well contested between the Raiders and the Warriors, but it would be the Warriors to come up with the victory in overtime.

  • 1954-55 cagers were the first...

    The high school basketball season is just around the corner. Fans attending games at the Trimble County High School gymnasium often note the presence of the life-sized image and career statistics of the late TCHS standout Jack Tingle located in the gym lobby.

  • Oberto/Miss Madison appeal...

    Mark down another win for driver Steve David and the O Boy! Oberto/Miss Madison Racing Team!

    This triumph came not at the end of a checkered flag with roostertails flying on the water, but rather during a conference call of the powers that govern Unlimited hydroplane racing. The board of directors of H1 Unlimited voted last week to accept the recommendation of the committee hearing the appeal of the outcome of September’s San Diego Bayfair to allow the appeal and reverse the disqualification of the Oh Boy! Oberto and reinstate that team’s victory.
