    TELL CITY—Eighteen athletes is not a lot for most track teams, but it gives Tell City’s girls track team more depth than usual.
    Only three times in the last 28 years have the Marksmen started a season with better numbers, and twice it was only one better.
    Numbers alone don’t mean anything if they are merely live bodies. But “we added several quality people, which will obviously be helpful,” said Coach Katie Chinn.

    LEOPOLD—The last time Perry Central won a girls track sectional, 1984, Linda Waninger was one of the team’s stars. Now two of her daughters, Ashley and Lindsey Gengelbach, could help the Commodores win another sectional.
    Lindsey Gengelbach is the defending sectional champion in the pole vault and has been named the Most Valuable Performer in the PLAC meet the last two years.

    TELL CITY—Tell City girls softball coach John Hayes said he hates to use the term “rebuilding year,” but that’s what his team is facing.
    The Marksmen have only two seniors on their team and only four letter winners back from last year’s 6-13 team.
    They graduated a four-year starting pitcher, Josalyn Ress, who led the team to a sectional title as a sophomore and the sectional championship game last year and is now pitching collegiately.

  • PC girls aiming for first conference title

    LEOPOLD—With deeper than ever pitching and strong infielders returning, Perry Central’s girls softball team is aiming for its first PLAC title.
    Sophomore Miranda Claise has moved up to the No. 1 pitcher after working with a pitching coach all winter.
    She went 1-3 as the No. 2 pitcher for the 4-13 Commodores last year. But now “she throws 53 to 55 miles per hour, she’s picked up a screwball and a curveball, and her change-up’s pretty good,” said Coach Mark Rothgerber.

  • PC boys team could contend for sectional

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central had the top three finishers in the boys cross country sectional last fall, so it’s no surprise that Coach Jason Barnett thinks the distance races will be the strongest events on his boys track team this spring.
    But with 10 lettermen returning and 29 boys on the team, including 18 upperclassmen, he thinks the Commodores also have enough depth in other events to contend for their first sectional title.
