  • Wolfpack nips PC at Conseco

    INDIANAPOLIS—Carolyn Pellman hit a 15-foot jump shot at the buzzer to lift Crawford County past Perry Central 46-44 in a girls basketball exhibition at Conseco Fieldhouse Sunday.

    The teams played a 60-minute varsity game with a running clock after the Indiana Fever played the Connecticut Sun in a WNBA game.

    Perry Central led most of the first 45 minutes, including by four points at halftime, and then fell behind by nine points.

    The Commodores battled back to tie the score on a three-point basket by Lavina Schwartz with 20 seconds left.

  • PC splits with Rebels

    LEOPOLD—Joey Peter had two hits and was the winning pitcher as Perry Central beat South Central 12-5 in the second game of a rain-shortened Teen League baseball doubleheader Monday.

    Peter struck out three, walked three, and gave up two hits in three innings.

    The scheduled five-inning game was ended by rain in the bottom of the third inning. But since the trailing team had batted in the majority of the scheduled innings it was ruled a complete game.

    Freshman Austin LeClere hit a double to back Peter in Perry Central’s five-hit attack.

    Tell City Cinema pitchers did not have as good of control, as Hair Razors scored eight runs on only four hits.

    Logan Flannagan, Bria Gelarden, Kira Maddle and Derrian Zabel each had one single for Hair Razors.

    Taylor Childers had three hits for Tell City Cinema.
