  • Commodores outrun Rangers to win relay meet at Dubois

    DUBOIS—Last year Perry Central’s boys track team faced Forest Park several times but did not beat the Rangers until the Northeast Dubois Relays, their last meeting before the sectional.
    Friday the Commodores won six of the 14 events to win the Northeast Dubois Relays and again beat Forest Park for the first time this season, 134.5 to 126.5. So Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett hopes that is a good omen for the sectional again.
