    The drought is finally over.

    After starting the season 5-4, the Raiders went on a five game losing streak that ended at home Jan. 12 when the team defeated Gallatin County 63-55.

    Monday night, the Raiders finally played like a team.

  • Panthers spoil Wildcats&...

    The Panthers were the spoilers of the Gallatin County High School homecoming festivities, beating the home team by 10 points in an intense battle.

    The Panthers came out determined to end their four-game losing streak, and took it to the Wildcats on every possession. The Wildcats did not score until the first period was half over; the quarter ended with the Panthers on top, 17-6.

    The Wildcats played their normal tough defense, pushing hard, playing hard, never to be dismissed as anything less than formidable.

    Hitting the hardwood at South Oldham High School Saturday, Jan. 10, the senior heavy Trimble County Raider squad hoped this would be the night to turn things around.

    A win against the Dragons would have broken the team’s five-game losing streak and guaranteed the boys one of the top two seeds in next month’s district tourney.

  • Girls win red-hot game by 4

    It was frigid outside, but red-hot inside the Gallatin County gym Thursday, Jan. 8, as the Lady Panthers took one from the border rival Lady Wildcats in regulation play.

    During the contest, three Lady Panthers fouled out, and both teams went for 37 free throws combined in the fourth quarter alone.

    Playing a smart, smothering defense, the Lady Panthers also play unselfish team ball. That characteristic was certainly true in this game.

  • Win-win evening for Panthers,...

    The Owen County Rebels ventured into the Panther’s den on Saturday night for a four-game set between the boys and girl’s teams and split the bill, with Carroll County coming away with a win in the boys junior varsity and the girls varsity games.

    A large crowd, nearly filling both sides of the gym, was entertained with a night of great basketball. And each side went home with one JV and one varsity win.  

  • Carroll County loses...

    The Carroll County Panthers headed to Campbellsville to play in the Coca Cola/Campbellsville University Holiday Classic over the Christmas break and lost a heartbreaker in the final game in overtime.

    The three game tournament began Dec. 28 when the Panthers met the Cougars of Morgan County, Ky., and took a 33-26 lead into the locker room at half time.

  • Queen of Bluegrass tourney crown...

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers traveled to East Carter High School in Grayson, Ky., to participate in the Queen of the Bluegrass tournament, but couldn’t bring home the crown.

    East Carter’s Lady Radiers  hosted their first-class eight-team tournament Dec. 26-28.  

    “We would like to have finished better than fourth place, but the fact is we competed well in every game and we play in these tournaments to prepare us for play in the Class A and our district tournament,” said Randy Mefford, Lady Panthers’ head coach.

  • Panthers take 3rd in tourney

    The Carroll County High School Panthers burned up the hardwood at  the Gallatin Steel Invitational, winning three of four games played in the tournament hosted by Gallatin County High School during Christmas break.

    The Panthers coasted to victory over Spencer County 58-32, after besting Dayton in the opener, 61-59, in overtime.

    Carroll then met the Iroquois Raiders of Louisville and made a good showing against a very tall, quick and physical team. The Panthers lost, 47-58. The Raiders beat Meade County by 20 points, Spencer County by 37 and Dayton by 39.

  • Lady Panthers host, win NAS...

    The Lady Panthers knocked off two good teams on their march toward a win over Owen County in the North American Stainless Classic on Tuesday, Dec. 23.

    “This was a total team effort,” said Head Coach Randy Mefford. “It was a really hard-fought game, and it was tied at 39-all with three minutes to go. We shut them down, totally, winning the game 46-39. This was some pretty tough competition.”

  • Raider boys fall 40-74 to Owen...

    Tuesday night the Raiders traveled to Owenton to face the Owen County Rebels in a conference match up. Though the Raiders came in the game with high hopes of beating a top conference team following their win against rival Carroll County a week before, Owen shattered that dream 40-74.
