    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls softball team will have a whole new infield and new pitcher as it tries to win its third consecutive PLAC title this year.
    Miranda Claise, who made All-PLAC the last two years as a pitcher, is now pitching for Lincoln Trail College.
    The three girls vying to replace her don’t have her velocity or variety of pitches yet. So more balls may be put in play against them and hit to the outfield.

    Indiana Department of Natural Resources has been doing fish surveys on many Hoosier lakes for 40 years or more. Most, if not all of the fishable lakes on the Hoosier are managed for bluegill/redear sunfish and largemouth bass populations.
