  • Field-event depth helps PC boys sink Cougars

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central swept all three places in three field events to beat North Harrison 72-60 in boys track Tuesday.
    That helped make up for the dominance in distance races by the Cougars, who won a cross country semistate last fall.
    The Cougars took all three places in the 800-meter run and first and second in the 1600 and 3200. And Perry Central, fighting a couple of injuries, did not even enter the 3200 relay.
    Field events were a different story, though.

  • Cassidy propels Perry Central past Orleans

    ORLEANS—Tanner Cassidy had two hits and pitched 5 2/3 innings as Perry Central beat Orleans 10-3 in PLAC baseball Saturday.
    Cassidy gave up four hits and three walks and struck out eight.
    “Tanner was throwing really well,” said Perry Central Coach Phil Zellers. “The only reason I took him out was he just got his pitch count up around 90 to 95. He actually struck out the last batter he faced before I took him out.”
    Colt Brown and Justin Hagan each hit a double and a single for Perry Central.
