  • Raiders baseball pulls off...

    BY TIM HENDRICK | Landmark News Service

    Trimble County senior pitcher Evan Kunkel kept Carroll County off balance all evening as he carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning as the Raider won 6-2.

    “Everyone knew he had the no-hitter going,” Trimble County head coach Frank Ragland said. “No one said anything and left Evan alone in the dugout. Evan moved down to a corner as the game progressed.”

  • Softball shellacks Lloyd...

    It may not always be the best thing for a team to hand someone a 21-0 drubbing on the road, for the next outing may be a rude awakening. Such was the case with the Trimble County Lady Raiders Monday in their home matchup with Madison in which the Trimble gals seemed stale in almost every aspect of the game, falling to the Lady Cubs by a 10-3 score.

  • Softball gets home win over...

    Trimble softball coach Kala Judy was pleased with the way her team bounced back from a 15-0 thrashing at the hands of Oldham County last Wednesday to overcome visiting Henry County by a 5-2 score the following day.

    “Yesterday definitely was a disappointment but the team came back together,” Judy said. “It was definitely a team effort today and I just hope it carries over through the weekend and we can play like that during the tournament.”

  • Despite strong 2nd inning,...

    Monday night’s matchup between the Trimble County Raiders and the visiting South Oldham Dragons resulted in a slugfest that sent a combined 26 runners across the plate. Unfortunately, the hosts ended up on the short end of a 17-9 score on a day with perhaps the most beautiful weather of the baseball season to date with clear blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s.

    It was a pitchers’ duel all night long, with Carroll’s Andrea Searcy (10 strikeouts) and Trimble’s Abby Ponder (eight strikeouts) dominating at the mound. Trailing 3-2 heading into the top of the seventh, Carroll County tied the game, but Trimble County answered, scoring the game-winning run to win the All “A” 8th Region Championship, 4-3, April 11, at Gallatin County High School. The Lady Raiders will compete in the All “A” state tournament April 28-29 in Owensboro.

    Local baseball teams finally beat the weather odds and got in some valuable field time last week.

    The Miss HomeStreet/Miss Madison hydroplane team has announced Kentucky native Cindy Shirley as the new crew chief, becoming the first woman to ever hold the leadership position on a championship-level team in the turbine-era (or modern era) of professional hydroplane racing.

    Shirley, who has been with the Miss HomeStreet/Miss Madison team for 15 years, most recently served as the boat chief. Shirley has been in charge of driver safety systems, general cockpit maintenance and also communicates with the driver during races.
