  • Sectional should be big day for...

    Tell City and Perry Central’s girls track teams had excellent records going into Tuesday’s sectional - Tell City was 24-3, its best record in years and Perry Central was 28-8-1 - and both did well in the sectional.
    But neither could beat defending champion Jasper because of the Wildcats’ superior depth.
    However the Jasper boys sectional today is likely to produce a champion from Perry County for the fourth year in a row. The only question seems to be whether it will be Tell City or Perry Central.
