  • Lassaline, Stiles win Glen Ress Memorial

  • All-PAC teams should be released to media when they are elected

    That doesn’t make sense.

    The softball team was selected June 1 but not released until two weeks later because some coaches requested it not be released until all conference teams were eliminated from the state tourney.

    Tecumseh won the Class A state title Saturday and Gibson Southern lost in the Class 3A state semifinals Friday.

  • Corydon overtakes Commodores

    CORYDON—Corydon scored four runs on just two hits in the fifth inning to beat Perry Central 6-4 in age-14 baseball Saturday.

    Two walks and an error also helped fuel that rally.

    Adam Kleaving hit a home run and a single and drove in two runs to lead Perry Central’s seven-hit attack in the seven-inning game.

    His home run cleared the left-field fence near the 330-foot marking.

    Colten Hedinger added one hit and drew two walks.

  • Mayor: Grant will benefit city long-term
