  • 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.

  • Trimble ‘came ready to play’ in...

    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.”

  • Ladies open with win over Walton...

    The Trimble County Lady Raiders impressed their coach and delighted the crowd in the friendly environs of Trimble County High School’s gymnasium Thursday. Trimble opened the 2011 volleyball season with straight set wins over Walton-Verona, 25-22 and 25-20.

    After losing by two in the third game of scrimmages against Carroll County’s Lady Panthers and TCHS alumni the Lady Raiders kept their composure in the late stages of each game against W-V when the Lady Bearcats made a run.

  • Regatta fans treasure Miss...

    Editor’s note: Following is the conclusion of Milton resident Fred Farley’s review of Miss Madison’s hometown win in the 1971 Gold Cup.

    From the standpoint of driving, Jim McCormick was clearly outperforming Terry Sterett. But only twice in Miss M’s career had she ever finished 60 miles in one day.
