  • Tell City rallies to beat PC 3-1...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City erupted for three runs in the fourth inning to beat Perry Central 3-1 in junior high softball Friday.
    Perry Central took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning, and at that point Perry Central starter Brinna Parker had given up only one hit and one walk.
    She may have tired in the fourth inning, and she was facing the heart of Tell City’s batting order for the second time so they may have timed her pitches better.

  • Commodores outshoot Northeast...

    Teammate Zach James was next with 43, including birdieing the par-4 No. 9 hole.
    “He got off to a pretty rough start but then he finished really strong,” said Dickerson. “He was even par for the last six holes.”
