  • PC tops Mitchell; falls to Raiders

  • Perry Central has county's best shot at sectional title

    Judging by records and the draw each received, Perry Central appears to have the best shot among Perry County teams at winning a girls basketball sectional this week.

    Cannelton, 11-8 going into its final regular-season game Saturday, has its best record in eight years. So if the Bulldogs had the same draw as they had last year and had to get by only 2-13 New Harmony to reach the championship game of their Class A sectional, they would have the best chance at a title.
