  • Huber breaks PC hurdles record

    MARENGO - It looks as if no one will come close to Perry Central in the PLAC girls track meet again.

    The Commodores won that meet by 83 points last year, and they finished 60 points ahead of the runner-up Thursday in a meeting of the top four teams from last year's conference meet.

    Perry Central scored 108 points, Mitchell 48, Crawford County 39, and Paoli 31.

    Jessica Huber set a Perry Central school record as she won the 100-meter intermediate hurdles in 16.04 seconds.

    Rachael Rayford won the 1600 run in 5:46 and the 800 in 2:36.24.

  • Huber ties PC's high jump record

    MARENGO - Nick Huber tied Perry Central's high jump record and the Commodores dominated the distance races as they won a boys quadrangular track meet Thursday.

    Perry Central scored 94 points, Paoli 77, Mitchell 51, and Crawford County 6.

    Huber won the high jump, clearing 6 feet, 5 inches to tie the school record set by Loyd Jobe in 1990.

    He strained a calf muscle trying to break the record, though, so he did not run the 300-meter intermediate hurdles or 1600 relay.

    He had already run the 110 high hurdles and won them in 15.53 seconds.

  • Tell City rallies to beat Harrison

    TELL CITY - Perhaps Tell City's baseball team should join the Southern Indiana Athletic Conference.

    The Marksmen are 2-1 against SIAC teams after rallying for seven runs in the sixth inning to beat Harrison 9-3 Thursday.

    Harrison entered the game with a 4-1 record and led 3-2 going into the bottom of the sixth inning.

    But four hits, five walks and one Harrison error that inning gave the Marksmen a six-run lead.

  • South Central tops Bulldogs

    CANNELTON - Cannelton's baseball team hasn't lost by the 10-run rule yet, but South Central scored in six of the seven innings to beat the Bulldogs 16-6 Thursday.

    Cannelton tied the game 6-6 in the bottom of the third inning with two runs on two walks, a single by Thomas Lane, and RBI grounders by Spencer Herzog and Cody Lawalin.

    South Central came right back with four runs in the top of the fourth to take the lead for good, though.

    The Rebels had just two hits that inning, as two walks, two throwing errors and a wild pitch also contributed to those runs.
