  • Jeeps outhit Tell City in opener

    TELL CITY—The bottom four players in Northeast Dubois’ batting order outhit Tell City’s entire team as the Jeeps beat Tell City 5-3 in a baseball season opener Monday.

    The Jeeps had nine hits, including six from their bottom four hitters.

    No. 9 hitter Austin Kunz hit a single and a double to deep center field—the Jeeps’ hardest hit ball of the game—and drove in two runs.

    His RBI double put the Jeeps ahead 5-0 in the fourth inning.

    Tell City had five hits for the game, with no more than one in any inning.

  • Pitching is big question mark for PC

    LEOPOLD—New Perry Central girls softball coach Mark Rothgerber thinks his team will hit and field well, but he is concerned about a lack of experienced pitching.

    Rothgerber, the team’s seventh coach in the team’s eight-year history, has 24 girls on the roster and he thinks nine or 10 of them lettered last year.

    He returns three-fourths of last year’s starting infield, two-thirds of last year’s starting outfield, and a third-year starting catcher. So understandably he says, “Defensively we look pretty strong.”

  • PC team strong in hurdles

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls track team has more depth than last year, especially in the hurdles races.

    The Commodores have 24 girls on their roster, six more than they started with last season. They have 10 letter winners returning, but the squad also includes six talented freshmen and a few juniors and sophomores who did not run last year.

    Jessica Huber, one of three seniors on the team, returns after winning both hurdles races in the PLAC last year.

  • TC team deeper than usual

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls track team has had some talented individuals in recent years but lost most of its meets because of a lack of depth.

    That should be less of a problem this year, as the Marksmen have better numbers than usual.

    They will start the season with 19 girls on the roster, tying the 2006 team for their second highest total in at least 27 years. Only the 1998 team, which started with 24, had more in that span.

    And the numbers could continue to get better, as there are only two seniors and two juniors on the team.

  • TC tennis team has more girls

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls tennis team has more than doubled in size since last year, and Coach Nick Weyer hopes that having more depth and experience means an improved record.

    “We only had eight girls last year, so having 17 is great,” said Weyer.

    “Each of the girls is showing improvement in these first few practices,” he added. “A few played a lot last summer and a few have taken some lessons.”

  • Eagles soar past Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Lanes-ville amassed 16 hits and also took advantage of 11 walks and eight Cannelton errors to beat the Bulldogs 19-2 in their baseball season opener Tuesday.

    Cannelton starting pitcher Jordan Mattingly gave up only three earned runs in four innings, but the Eagles still built a 5-0 lead against him.

    With several players at new positions, the Bulldogs may have been a little nervous on defense early.

  • Schaad PC's most valuable cheerleader

    TELL CITY—Cassy Schaad was named Perry Central’s most valuable cheerleader at the squad's fall and winter banquet at the Patio Steakhouse March 18.

    Schaad also won the Julie Irvin Memorial Tumbling Award and was named the best back spot.

    Best base: Andrea Ubelhor and Jennifer Simpson

    Best tumbler: Baylie Taylor
