  • Panther defense wins Senior...

    The Panthers had two emotional reasons for wanting a win Friday, Oct. 31: First, this was the final  home football game of the year; second, it was senior night.

    The team didn’t let anyone down.

    In the stat book, Kentucky Country Day came to Panther Field looking better  than the Panthers in many areas – except one, the win/loss column. KCD left the field with another loss.

  • Bedford Bank-backed Blue Sox...
  • Panthers hang tough against...

    The DeSales Colts of Louisville came into Carroll County High School’s Panther Stadium on Friday night with an impressive record, and escaped with a win.

    “I’m not making excuses, but I’m giving the boys a compliment,” Head Coach Mike Weedman said after the game. “We were without a lot of key players tonight, and we were still able to play the game that we did.”

  • RAIDERS FREEZE OUT POLAR BEARS

    Trimble County gave the visiting Bracken County Polar Bears a whooping in the annual Bedford Bank Bowl in a lopsided win 50-0 last Friday night. The win snapped Trimble’s six game losing streak.

    This was Trimble’s second win of the season, after getting off to a great start in the opening week, beating Casey County 50-7.

    “It seems every time we score 50 points we win,” coach Jesse Bray joked.

    The #3 ranked Lady Raiders ended the regular season on a positive note, finishing fifth overall in the highly competitive meet attended by 15 teams. The Raiders tallied 138 points and a team average of 21:31.

    The under-10 Panther Select baseball team finished its season Tuesday, July 29, with a bang, putting the Carroll County minor league all-star team through its paces as the team gears up for tournament season.

    Both teams consist of players under 10 years old; but the Panther Select team, with 9- and 10-year-olds, has been playing together since March. The extra experience was obvious at the  July 22 scrimmage at Robert Westrick Memorial Park.

  • Cinderella story ends too soon...

    The Lady Raiders high school volleyball team could not have picked a better time to play as a team when the Trimble group traveled to Carroll County to face off against the rival Panther squad Oct. 13. The match opened the 29th District playoffs where Trimble County bested the Panthers, 25-19 and 25-21, before falling to Oldham County to end their tournament dreams.

  • Henry County dampens high...

    Homecoming brought out a lot of emotion, family and friends as everyone came together to watch the Carroll County Panthers play football on a beautiful fall night.

    It’s a chance for recent grads to come home and show off their college status and other returning alumni to visit with friends and show off their children.  This past Friday was all that and more, except for a win.

    The Henry County Wildcats are big, and when they came into town many whispered, ‘the Panthers will be lucky to score against them.’
