  • Carroll girls lose district...

    In the championship game of the 31st District tournament, Carroll County’s Lady Panthers lost in double overtime to Owen County by a mere 30-38.

    The Lady Panthers had trouble all night with turnovers, fouls and shots not falling.  

    The Lady Rebels jumped out to an early lead, by scoring eight unanswered points, the Lady Panthers knotted the score at nine by the end of the first quarter.

    At the end of regulation, the score was tied at 21, proving that neither team was lighting anything up.

  • Wildcats take third win against...

    The Panthers were within seconds of advancing in the 31st District Tournament, but were foiled by Henry County Wildcats for the third time this year.

    The border rival team entered the Carroll County High School gym that was bursting with fans for the second game on the night, and squeaked out with a 42-43 win.

    “There’s only one team that gets to end their season with a win, and everybody else ends up with a loss,” Head Coach Carroll Yager said. “We had hoped to go a little further.”

  • Senior Nights less than stellar...

    Senior Night marks the end of regular season play and sometimes the end of a career. So participants always expect a win, but neither of Carroll County High School’s varsity basketball teams got that wish last week.

    The Walton-Verona Bearcats and Lady Bearcats made sure of that.

    The Panthers on Thursday, Feb. 19, led most of the first half of their Senior Night game. Chris Hendrick scored first for the Panthers, adding bucket after bucket as he and Bearcat Jordan Ponzer contributed 26 points each for their teams.

  • Blue Lightning strikes at home

    The Villa Madonna Blue Lightning came into town Tuesday, Feb. 17, and handed the Lady Panthers a second loss on their home court.

    The 46-27 final score left little doubt that the Blue Lightning had the upper hand in the contest, as they chalked up their 19th win for the season.

    Though the Lady Panthers clinched the North Central Kentucky Conference title Feb. 14, the girls team played flat against Villa Madonna. Their usual smothering defense was a no-show; their shooting was markedly off.

  • Devine named NCKC player of week

    Lady Panther Hannah Devine recently was named North Central Kentucky Conference player of the week.

    The Carroll County High School freshman scored 40 points and grabbed 16 rebounds during varsity games with Oldham County and Williamstown that week, Head Coach Randy Mefford said.

    Devine also won the award as an eighth-grader.  She has been on the varsity squad since seventh grade, and teams in the eighth region are well aware of her skills.

    Mefford says Devine sits the bench during freshman games and encourages them, gets them water and is their cheerleader.

  • Young TCHS tennis teams...

    The Trimble County High School boys and girls tennis teams plan to stop at nothing to bring home success in the 2009 season.

    Along with losing two players to last year’s graduation, the teams have started this season with some unaccustomed indoor practice. The previously used courts, located at the Trimble County Park, were dismantled two months ago, yet construction of new courts at the park has not been completed.

    Despite the changes, however, coaches of the Raiders clubs have high hopes for a winning season.

  • Homecoming bittersweet for...

    The Lady Panthers could have been mistaken for the Pink Ladies of the musical “Grease,” donning pink jackets and headbands to promote breast cancer awareness during warm-ups prior to Saturday’s game against the Lady Demons of Williamstown.

    In addition to being Homecoming, the game was part of Coaches vs. Cancer, and $1 from every ticket sold went to benefit the American Cancer Society. The event raised a total of $1,025 for ACS.

    The girls varsity team wasn’t so charitable to the visiting Demons, though.

  • Panthers take down Raiders with...

    After a crushing defeat Saturday at Homecoming, the Panthers traveled to Trimble County High School on Monday, Feb. 16, and earned redemption.

    The team met Head Coach Carroll Yager’s challenge to step up and complete for the full 32 minutes of the ballgame against the Raiders.

    “This was a good overall win for us, and everybody that played contributed,” Yager said after the game.

    The Panthers held Raider top-scorer Aaron Law to only eight points, and two scoreless periods.

  • Winning was not the only option...

    Everyone was a winner Friday night as the Owen County Lady Rebels came to town to battle the Lady Raiders in a Coaches VS Cancer charity event.

  • CAC homecoming held in new gym

    It’s been a long time coming, but Christian Academy of Carrollton finally received temporary approval to use its new gymnasium.
