  • Elementary Raider teams complete...

    Trimble’s fifth grade basketball team took on Switzerland County for a shot at going undefeated in the Van Wye league in Madison, IN. The Raiders were very lackadaisical at the game, seemed to have no energy and didn’t play like themselves in the game. They pressed in the first half, which helped account for 21 steals for the game but the Raiders also amassed 11 fouls for the half. Trimble went into halftime down 12-10.

    The Trimble County Raiders came within two baskets of winning three games in last week’s North American Stainless Classic in Carrollton. The Raiders played the equivalent of 13-1/2 quarters in three contests but fell to defeat in two games by two points in an exhaustive, but determined, effort.

  • Trimble tunes up for holiday...

    Trimble County Lady Raiders coach Kerrie Stewart didn’t know what to expect when her team hosted Bellevue Thursday. Her team had battled hard in their road trip to Bellevue a year ago. The Lady Tigers, however, lost most of last year’s team to graduation and were forced to field a varsity starting lineup that included three eighth graders. The end result was a 63-31 breeze for the Lady Raiders.

  • Rebels riddle Raiders, 43-20

    A game plan of deliberate slowed-down offense was well executed in the early stages of Trimble County’s outing with regional power Owen County on Dec. 6, but Trimble’s inability to generate points on the scoreboard proved to be the Raiders’ downfall. Owen eventually pulled away in the second half to score a 43-20 win.
