  • Gunn on All-PAC team

    TELL CITY—Tell City junior running back Trent Gunn was named to the All-PAC football team selected by conference coaches last week.

    According to statistics released by Tell City Coach Don Hitz, Gunn rushed for 1,195 yards on 144 carries this season. He scored nine touchdowns.

  • Huber, Hedinger All-PLAC

    LEOPOLD—Improving its conference standing helped Perry Central double its number of players on the All-PLAC volleyball team this year.

    Senior outside hitter Jessica Huber made the team for the second year in a row. And teammate Megan Hedinger, a junior middle hitter, was also selected to the team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

    Huber was the only Perry Central player to make the team last year, when the Commodores finished last in the conference.

  • Schwartz, Ernst started for 4 sectional champs

    Perry Central’s winning the Jasper boys cross country sectional for the fourth year in a row and advancing to the state meet for the third year in a row were the top accomplishments by any Perry County team this fall.

    But there were also several outstanding individual accomplishments by local athletes.

    Seniors Jake Schwartz and Michael Ernst have been varsity cross country runners since their freshman seasons and thus started for four sectional champions in that sport.
