  • Wolfpack nips PC at Conseco

    INDIANAPOLIS—Carolyn Pellman hit a 15-foot jump shot at the buzzer to lift Crawford County past Perry Central 46-44 in a girls basketball exhibition at Conseco Fieldhouse Sunday.

    The teams played a 60-minute varsity game with a running clock after the Indiana Fever played the Connecticut Sun in a WNBA game.

    The Commodores battled back to tie the score on a three-point basket by Lavina Schwartz with 20 seconds left.

  • PC splits with Rebels

    LEOPOLD—Joey Peter had two hits and was the winning pitcher as Perry Central beat South Central 12-5 in the second game of a rain-shortened Teen League baseball doubleheader Monday.

    The scheduled five-inning game was ended by rain in the bottom of the third inning. But since the trailing team had batted in the majority of the scheduled innings it was ruled a complete game.

    Freshman Austin LeClere hit a double to back Peter in Perry Central’s five-hit attack.
