    LEOPOLD—Mater Dei scored the first nine points and defeated Perry Central 80-37 in boys basketball Saturday.
    Logan Carter, a 6-foot-10 center, scored the first basket from two feet out.
    After a Commodore turnover, Dawson Caswell made a three-pointer. After a Perry Central miss, Sam Fulton made two free throws. Then Carter made another short shot.
    Perry Central’s Ty Mullis scored to end Mater Dei’s run with 4:47 left in the first quarter.

  • Forest Park sectional favorite

    Sectional 48, this area’s Class 2A boys basketball sectional, has traditionally been one of the strongest - if not the strongest - in its class in the state.
    It has produced two state champions and one state runner-up in the last 15 years. And one of the teams currently in it, Mater Dei, won the state title in 2004 when it was in another sectional.
    This year the sectional looks possibly stronger than ever. Four of the seven teams in it could go a long way in the state tourney if they survive the sectional.

  • Senators stop Perry Central late

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central had trouble scoring against West Washington’s man-to-man defense and lost 55-37 in PLAC girls basketball Monday.
    The Commodores held West Washington to 4 for 17 field-goal shooting in the third quarter to pull within nine points after a slow start.
    West Washington had played a zone defense most of the game, but “in the fourth quarter they went man-to-man and we didn’t execute very well in the halfcourt,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.

    Sloss scored eight points in the first quarter as the Bulldogs jumped to a 15-4 lead.
    “We pressed a little bit and got a few turnovers off it,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “And we got their big girl in foul trouble - she had three fouls in the first quarter.”

  • TC boys 3rd in relay meet;...

    TELL CITY—Tell City won one relay and placed second in three as it finished third in its five-team boys swimming relay meet Saturday.
    Bedford North Lawrence won with 114 points. Jasper scored 83, Tell City 76, Providence 53, and Corydon 34.

  • New Albany downs Tell City

    NEW ALBANY—Tell City lost to New Albany 42-30 in wrestling Wednesday, “but we wrestled them a little better than the first time,” said Tell City Coach Neal Stahly.
    Tell City had lost to New Albany 45-30 in Bedford North Lawrence’s Super 6 Duals Nov. 18.
    One improvement Wednesday was Joe Craig’s 10-4 win over Joe Gohl in the 152-pound weight class.
    “Joe avenged a loss to Joe Gohl,” noted Stahly. “The Gohl kid is young but he’s been wrestling for quite a while and is a tough, wily wrestler.”

  • Cannelton girls fall to...

    WHITESVILLE, Ky.—Whitesville Trinity outscored Cannelton 36-15 in the middle quarters to pull away to a 46-28 girls basketball victory Friday.
    This game, which was part of the Trinity Shootout, was Cannelton’s second one against Trinity in four days.
    The Bulldogs did have all six of their players available for this game, as Madeline Lindauer returned to action.
    And Chloe Davis appeared to be over the wrist injury that sidelined her part of last Monday’s game and hampered her shooting when she did play.
