  • Perry Central’s great sports year continues

    Last October I wrote that this could be the best school year ever for Perry Central sports, and that has proven to be the case.
    The Commodores have won one regional, four sectionals, and eight of 10 possible conference titles so far.
    Three sectional titles and one conference one (boys golf) remain to be decided.
    The four sectional titles in one school year are the most for any school in Perry County history.
