    Members of the Trimble County High School cross-country team are off to a fast start this season.

    Results from the 1600m girls race were:

    While a student at Trimble County High School, Sara Spurr was not a member of the cross-country team. Nor was she a participant in Raider track and field competitions.

    Maybe that’s why it came as such a surprise to her family and friends when the 2005 TCHS grad announced recently that she was training for a marathon.

    The Carroll County cross country team traveled to Williamstown last week for its first race of the season, and tried to make a mark against some very good teams.

    Trimble County and Walton-Verona are top teams in the state and will challenge the Panthers every single week, according to Coach Jay Jones.

    “Our team is young but has really been putting in some great work this last month,” Jones said. “I am pleased with the way we raced down the stretch.”

    Building on a tough loss to North Oldham at home Tuesday, Sept. 2, the CCHS varsity team regrouped to beat Owen County on Sept. 3, and then take second place in the regional “All A” tournament Sept. 6 at Henry County.

    The teams were stoked, the crowd was huge, and everything was ready for the Carroll County High School Panthers’ first football game of the season.  

    But Mother Nature had some tricks up her sleeve. The game against the Gallatin County Wildcats was supposed to start at 7:30 p.m., but several lightning delays pushed kickoff to 10:10. Despite the delay, most of the crowd stayed until the bitter end.

    Clean out the freezer and grab your gun or bow: Deer season has arrived in Kentucky.

    Archery season for deer opens Saturday, Sept. 6, and the animals are plentiful in Trimble County and the surrounding region, says Matt Whalen, an officer with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

    Whalen said last year’s outbreak of chronic wasting disease does not appear to have taken a toll on the population in this area, or elsewhere in the state.

    One way to honor and support fallen and injured U.S. soldiers is to play golf at a state park golf course on Aug. 30. On that day, players will be able to donate to Wounded Warriors Inc.

    With backing from the U.S. Golf Association and the PGA of America, all Kentucky state park golf courses will be participating in Patriot Golf.

    Money raised also benefits the Fallen Heroes Foundation.

    As the long-time boys golf coach at Carroll County High School, Warren McEuen doesn’t mind saying he taught some of the parents of the boys on his team when they were in high school.

    “This is a young team,” McEuen said. His two oldest players are juniors this year; many of their teammates are in middle school.  

    And because he is planning to retire in about three years, McEuen knows he will not see some of his youngest players make it to their senior year.
