    TELL CITY—Sydney Goffinet delivered on a birthday promise and more as Perry Central defeated Tell City 14-0 in softball Friday.
    It was the birthday of her dad, Perry Central assistant coach Tony Goffinet, and he told her he wanted a home run for his birthday.
    So she hit a two-run shot well over the center-field fence in the third inning for her sixth homer of the season, breaking the school record she set last year.

    The Commodores scored 70 points, Northeast Dubois 64, and Springs Valley 29.
    Hurdler-jumper Andrew Huber and distance runners Aaron Pierrard and Bryce Lain had their usual strong meets for the Commodores.

  • Manziel’s height shouldn’t...

    One of the biggest questions about the upcoming NFL draft is how soon Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will be chosen.
    Everyone knows about his success in college, including winning the Heisman Trophy as a freshman.
    And unlike another former Heisman winner, Tim Tebow, few NFL scouts question Manziel’s arm strength.
    Their big question about whether he can be successful as a pro is his height. He is 6 feet tall and for some reason the pros prefer quarterbacks to be at least 6-foot-4.

  • Bluejackets top Perry Central

    LEOPOLD—Perry Cen-tral pitcher Anthony Mosby had control problems early in a 5-1 PLAC baseball loss to Mitchell Friday.
    Mosby walked eight and struck out six in five innings. Most of the walks came in the first three innings, when the Bluejackets jumped ahead 3-0.
    “He struggled with his control the first three innings, then he settled in and threw well,” said Perry Central Coach Phil Zellers. “But he had thrown quite a few pitches (when he was relieved after the fifth inning).”
