  • Rowe’s hitting helps Rockport...

    PRINCETON—Tell City senior Hunter Rowe had three hits and drove in two runs as Rockport beat Princeton 13-10 to win the American Legion baseball regional Sunday.

  • Legion ball needs more teams in...

    The declining number of American Legion baseball teams in southwestern Indiana has to make one wonder about the future of the sport in this area.
    As recently as 1998 this area hosted a five-team sectional, including Perry County’s entry. The winners of four southern Indiana sectionals would advance to a regional.
    In 1999, the last year Perry County fielded a Legion team, the sectional was down to four teams.
    By 2011 it was a two-team sectional, with just Rockport and Boonville in it.

  • Best-ball golf tourney planned...

    TELL CITY—The Hoosier Heights Country Club will once again sponsor and host the Schweizer Fest golf tourney Aug. 8-9.  
    It will be a two-person best ball both days (partners each play their own ball through each hole, but record only the better score) with flights established after Saturday’s play. Play will begin with a shotgun start both days at 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

  • Human foozball tourney will be...

    TELL CITY – The United Way of Perry County will sponsor Aug. 8 what organizers say should be a fun-filled, action-packed game of human foozball.
    Two teams of seven people, while holding on to a series of rotating poles, will try to shoot-kick a soccer ball through the opposing team’s goal.
    It will be just like the table game, but with live people instead of wood figures or paddles. No back flip experience is required.
    The tourney will be held in City Hall Park between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., with each game lasting 30 minutes.

    TELL CITY – Playing shorthanded, Cash Waggner still won both its games Thursday to claim the Tell City Women’s Softball League regular-season title Thursday.

    Cash Waggner beat Alpine 23-2 and EverBody’s Fitness Center 12-2 to finish the season 7-0.

    Cash Waggner’s other game with Alpine this season was rained out in the first inning and not completed because it would not affect the final standings.

    In past issues, I’ve called on the IHSAA to make progressive changes to adapt to today’s sports scene.

    My latest plea to the IHSAA involves the one-week sports moratorium that has been in place for years and finding ways to make it equal for all high school athletes.

    Moratorium week is defined by the IHSAA as a period where “there shall be no contact between athletes and coaches, and no athletic activities, including conditioning, conducted.”
