    “How can I not be upbeat about the future?”

    Trimble County High School’s first-year football head coach William Blair suppressed his disappointment over his team’s season-opening loss by focusing on the positive aspects of the game.

    Visiting Berea got on the scoreboard first, taking a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter en route to a 19-8 win over Trimble County Friday. Berea scored again with 3:26 to go in the first half but the kick for the extra point failed and Trimble trailed 13-0.

    The Trimble County Lady Raiders got a wakeup call in their Tuesday matchup with Gallatin County last week. Trimble had rolled over Walton-Verona the previous week and handily dispatched Carroll County on the previous evening but both the volleyball ball and the net appeared foreign to Trimble in the early going during their home match with Gallatin.

  • FALL SPORTS PREVIEW: FOOTBALL

    While the 2011 season may be what first-year Head Coach William Blair calls an exercise of “building from the ground up,” the future looks bright for Trimble County High School football. Of the 33 Raider uniforms on the field this season 21 will be worn by freshmen.

    Blair says he will depend on seniors Stuart Barnes and Josh Baker for leadership and expects big plays from juniors Tyler Drumm, Aaron Blanton and Kyle Sparks, all of whom saw a lot of action last year.

    The Lady Raiders continued their dominance over border rival, Carroll County, extending their win streak to five games continuing from last season. Consistent serving was the key to victory for the visitors. They missed four serves in the first game and only one in the second.

    “I think my girls came ready to play tonight,” Trimble head coach Ruth Staples said. “… I told them to be more mentally prepared serving, and it must have worked.”
