    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Pat Jarboe has resigned as Tell City’s boys soccer coach after two years on the job.
    The Marksmen went 0-12 this season, including a 6-0 loss to Northeast Dubois in the sectional. They scored four goals for the season.
    They also went 0-12 last year with four goals in Jarboe’s first season. That was an improvement from the previous season when they also went 0-12 but scored only one goal under Jarboe’s predecessor.

  • Commodores spike Senators

    CAMPBELLSBURG—Abby Reed made 15 kills as Perry Central overcame a first-set loss to beat West Washington 20-25, 25-12, 25-15, 25-23 in PLAC volleyball Thursday.
    Payton Emmons and Terissa Roark each added eight kills and Ryann Lynch made seven.
    Roark made two blocks and Latisha James added one.
    Addy Davis had a season-high 35 assists.
    Lynch made 27 digs, Courtney Berger 17, Davis 14, Brooke Mullis 13, and Brooke Lasher 12 as the Commodores had one of their best defensive matches of the season.

  • Area teams should form new conference

    I had heard rumors that Tell City was interested in leaving the Pocket Athletic Conference to join the Patoka Lake Athletic Conference, and Tell City Principal Brad Ramsey confirmed Oct. 5 that Tell City had applied for PLAC membership.
    But two days later he told me Tell City had withdrawn its application.
    Apparently several parents had complained about the proposed move. I can understand some of their reasons, as the PLAC doesn’t have all the sports Tell City offers: wrestling and boys and girls swimming, soccer and tennis.

    MITCHELL—Perry Central committed six turnovers and Mitchell scored touchdowns off three of them to beat the Commodores 47-14 in PLAC football Friday.
    Mitchell already led 6-0 when a Perry Central runner fumbled at his own 45-yard line and Mitchell’s Ethan Bohnenkamp recovered the ball.
    Mitchell quarterback Tyson James then completed a 37-yard pass to Bohnenkamp. That led to Gage Smith’s 10-yard touchdown run two plays later.
    Perry Central’s next drive ended with an interception.
