  • Football sectional pairings...

    The Class A football alignments were about the only surprise for this area when the IHSAA announced its sectional pairings Monday for all class sports for the next two years.
    The Class 2A volleyball, boys basketball, softball and baseball sectionals for Tell City and Perry Central did not change at all.
    The only change in the 2A girls basketball sectional was the addition of Mater Dei, which had moved up to Class 3A the last two years due to the IHSAA’s success-factor rule (the Wildcats had won two consecutive 2A state titles before that).
