  • South Central outhits Bulldogs

    ELIZABETH—South Central shut out Cannelton the first four innings and held on to beat the Bulldogs 16-7 in girls softball Thursday.

    “We had eight strikeouts, which is more than usual. We’ve been making pretty good contact.”

    The Rebels built a 10-0 lead in the first four innings but brought in a relief pitcher who had control problems in the fifth inning.

    Charles Weatherholt and Brad Douglas each shot an 8-over-par 44 to lead the Commodores.

    Logan Shearn and Jonathan Flamion each shot a 46.

    Weatherholt birdied the par-4, No. 9 hole and Shearn birdied the park-4, No. 3.

  • Southridge shuts out Tell City

    HUNTINGBURG—Southridge won every match in straight sets to beat Tell City 5-0 in PAC girls tennis Thursday.

    The closest match was in No. 1 singles, where Katie Whitsitt beat Bethany Peter 6-4, 6-4.

    Southridge won all but one game in the other two singles matches. Tonya Kunkler beat Alexis Braun 6-1, 6-0 in No. 2 and Mackenzi Seib beat Rachel Woznicki 6-0, 6-0 in No. 3.

    Peter and McGooky shut out Brooke Birchler and Mary Burst 6-0, 6-0 in No. 1 doubles.

  • Tell Ctiy girls 3rd in triangular

    JASPER—Tell City has 19 athletes on its girls track team this year, which is more than usual. But that pales in comparison to Castle’s 70.

    So predictably Castle dominated a triangular meet Thursday, winning with 101 points. Jasper scored 66 and Tell City 12.

    “Castle will probably win the track regional this year—they’re that good,” said Tell City Coach Katie Chinn. “And we only ran most of our girls in one (individual) event because it was our third meet in eight days.”
