    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls track team is even younger and smaller than last year, but Coach Michelle Duncan thinks the Commodores can still compete for the PLAC title.
    Elizabeth Dauby is the only senior and one of just four letter winners on the team.
    Two juniors, three sophomores and 10 freshmen complete the 16-girl roster.
    Duncan thinks the throwing events should be among the team’s strongest “with Claire Davis returning and two really good freshmen joining her.”

    LEOPOLD—Half of the 24 boys on Perry Central’s track team are sophomores, so Coach Jason Barnett doesn’t really know what to expect from his team.
    “I’ve got an athletic group of young men for sure,” he said. “We’ll see how it goes.”
    He thinks the hurdles races and relays should be some of the Commodores’ strongest events.
    Junior Clay James returns in both hurdles races after placing second in both in the PLAC meet last year.

  • TC girls track team young, working hard

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Though there’s not great depth in any event, Tell City’s girls track team should be strong in sprints and throwing events.
    “I think there’s potential with Valerie Kehl in short sprints,” said Tell City Coach Katie Weyer. “She works so hard.”
    Kehl, a freshman, placed second in the 200-meter dash in 29.47 seconds in the junior high PAC meet last year.
    She will run the 100 and 200 dashes and the 1600 relay.
