  • Quickness, experience strengths for PC

    LEOPOLD—Good quickness, including returning starters at both running back positions and five of the seven defensive positions behind the line, should help Perry Central remain one of the state’s top Class A football teams this year.

    The Commodores went 10-1 last year and won the PLAC for the fifth year in a row and seventh time in the last eight.

    They return their top two rushers from that team, senior T.J. Hall and junior Mikey Wilkerson. Hall rushed for 1,635 yards last year, averaging 7.6 yards per carry, and scored 24 touchdowns.

  • Marksmen return strong running backs

    TELL CITY—An experienced backfield and more experience than last year on defense and the offensive line should help Tell City’s football team improve on last year’s 0-10 record.

    Last year tailback Trent Gunn and fullback Kyle Osborne were the only Marksmen who had started more than one game on offense the previous season.

    This year they return along with junior quarterback Nick Kleaving from last year’s backfield.

  • PC holds off Cannelton

    CANNELTON—Jessica Huber made 11 kills and 16 digs as Perry Central defeated Cannelton 23-25, 25-22, 25-17, 25-19 in volleyball Tuesday.

    Hilarie Hahus served 21 points for Perry Central and Huber added 16. Hahus went 28 for 29 serving with 10 aces and Huber went 20 for 20 with three aces.

    Getting serves inbounds was often the key to scoring, as both teams made several unforced errors on returns.

    The Commodores took advantage of those late, as Hahus served the last five points to give them the win.

  • Huskies outspike Marksmen

    TELL CITY—Evansville North used a stronger spiking attack to beat Tell City 25-20, 25-14, 25-17 in a volleyball season opener Monday.

    “We didn’t attack,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “We were always on defense. And our communication was so bad it wasn’t even funny.”

    She said one reason for the offense’s problems may have been “I just got this rotation two days ago. We’ve had several injuries.”

    Freshman McKenzie Hayes led the Marksmen with five kills and eight assists.

  • PC teams expect best seasons

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central cross country coach Jason Barnett is setting the bar high for his teams this year, saying the boys and girls teams should have their best seasons ever.

    The Commodore boys have won their sectional the last three years and last year finished 20th in the state meet. They return all seven boys who ran in that meet.

  • Noland to run for Vincennes

    TELL CITY—Jamal Noland, a 2009 Tell City graduate, has decided to accept an offer to run for Vincennes University’s men’s track team.

    VU Coach Chris Gafner recruited him after seeing him run the 100-meter dash in the IHSAA regional last spring. He plans to have Noland run the 200 and 400 and possibly participate in the long jump or high jump.

  • Drexler's hat trick helps TC beat Chargers

    PETERSBURG—Christoph Drexler had three goals and one assist as Tell City shut out Pike Central 7-0 in junior varsity soccer Tuesday.

    Drexler scored on one-third of his nine shots on goal. An exchange student from Germany, he “has a very good knowledge of the game,” said Tell City Coach Fred Hillenbrand.

    Kyli Smithson, one of two girls on Tell City’s team, scored the Marksmen’s first goal and later had two assists.
