  • Lady Raiders run to sixth place...

    Coming off their fifth consecutive regional championship, the Trimble County girls cross country team found a competitive state field waiting on them in Lexington last weekend.

    Probably the most competitive Kentucky Girls Class “A” State race in the past decade occurred at the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday, Nov. 15. Only 14 points separated third place from ninth in the state meet and just four 4 points kept the sixth place Lady Raiders from finishing third overall.

  • Runnin’ Raiders...

    Expected to place seventh in the state meet, the Trimble County Cross Country boys team surprised the state field last weekend by placing fourth overall. The fourth place finish is the highest placing in school history, outside of the 1954 State Championship.

    The rain, sleet, wind and cold weather didn’t slow the Raiders boys down as they placed five guys under the 18:01 mark and finishing with a team average of 17:40, the fastest Trimble County team in school history.

  • Panthers lose their 'groove...

    The Carroll County Panther football season came to an end Friday night, Nov. 7, on the Green Devils’ field in Dayton, Ky.

    The Panthers, losing 50-20, seemed to be just a step behind the Green Devils the whole game.

    It was a team the Panthers beat last year, and one that has been losing to everyone else this year, sporting a 1-8 record until the Panthers showed up.

    The Panthers, went 5 and 5 on the season and need to now get ready for post season play.

  • Busy weekend for Collins

    D’Anthony Collins was the lone Carroll County cross-country runner to qualify for the state championship meet, set for Saturday at Lexington’s Kentucky Horse Park.

    Collins turned in a blistering time of 18:15 for the 3.1-mile race that saw him cross the finish line 10th ahead of 41 other runners on Nov. 8  during the Class A Region 5 meet at Admiral Stadium in Danville.

  • Football Raiders claw past...

    By LARRY SULLIVAN, JR.

    The Raiders charged onto the field last week ready to end the regular season with a win over the Bearcats of Walton-Verona.

    And that is exactly what they did in front of a hometown crowd on Trimble County’s senior night.

    The Trimble County High School Raiders went out with a bang Friday night to close the regular season with a 4-6 record.

  • XC Raiders compete in regional...

    The fierce competition between teams and individuals made for an exciting day at the Region 5 Cross Country Championship.

    Five teams, including three state-ranked, and 45 girls, seven of who are state-ranked, competed in the regional championship race Saturday, Nov. 8.

  • Coaches expect record Raider...

    Head Trimble County High School boys basketball coach Bob Lauster, along with assistants Jimmy Mckinney, Joe Perkinson and new addition Chris Reed, are preparing for a season that could go down in the record books… in a good way.

  • Gonterman wins state open race...

    Over 300 runners from 40 teams competed in each race making last weekend’s Kentucky State Middle and Elementary State Cross Country Championships worth seeing.

    The Runnin’ Raiders held their own as they competed in the 6th Grade and Under State Girls and Boys Championship, Middle School Boys State race, and Middle School Open Girls State race.

  • Just like butter Trimble Raiders...

    Trimble County opened up yet another can of… biscuits, last Friday night when the Raiders traveled to Owenton, for another flawless victory.

    The Raiders and Owen County Rebels came into the game matching 2-6 records. The Owen team had hoped to celebrate Senior Night with a big win, enacting a bit of revenge for the Raiders 40-6 blowout against them on Trimble’s Senior Night last year.

    The Raiders, however, showed everyone that size did not matter in a game that ultimately was a bit like the biblical tale ‘David and Goliath.’

  • Unexpected emotion ended...

    Lifetime memories were cemented Friday night for four cheerleaders, 10 band members and 14 football players – all seniors, participating in the last game of the season at Carroll County High School’s Panther Field.

    Some of these students have lived their entire lives in Carroll County; some moved here with their families.

    Their parents have supported them as students, athletes and performers, and all shed tears after the game against with Kentucky Country Day. A game that turned out to be a victory for the Panthers, by the way.
