  • Former Cannelton resident Hein...

    Readers of the Perry County News’ Facebook page know that I recently celebrated a milestone birthday.
    I usually don’t feel old, though. But one thing that almost made me feel that way was hearing that Jeff Hein, 45, had retired as boys basketball coach at Vincennes Lincoln, though he will remain as athletic director.
    When I started here right out of college Hein was an 8-year old resident of Cannelton, where his dad, Dale, was the boys basketball coach.

    CANNELTON—Cannelton hasn’t officially been a member of a conference for 28 years, since the Three Rivers Athletic Conference fell apart in 1988.
    Several Cannelton athletic directors since, including current one Brian Garrett, have tried to find a new conference for the Bulldogs but without success.
    This year the Bulldogs were members of an informal conference though, the Southern Hoosier Challenge.

  • Tell City pins Jasper 49-41

    JASPER—Tell City earned six pins to beat Jasper 49-41 in junior high wrestling Thursday.
    “We split wins with nine each but we fought off our backs and secured more pins than them (Jasper scored four pins),” noted Tell City Coach Chase Litherland. “That was the difference in the match.
    “I was very proud of the way the kids bounced back after the momentum turned in Jasper’s favor (when the Wildcats won seven consecutive matches in the middle of the meet).

  • No PC boys named All-PLAC

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—At the end of the season Perry Central Coach Matt Carter said it would be hard for the Commodores to get anyone on the All-PLAC boys basketball team because they were winless in conference games.
    He was proven correct Thursday, as Perry Central was the only school without any players named to the 12-man team in voting by league coaches.
