  • PC girls scoreless at Jasper

    They had just one hit against Corydon. Perry Central Coach Mark Rothgerber noted, “It is a team we played earlier (April 8), same pitcher, and we had eight hits and scored 10 runs. So it shows the potential this team has if they want to put forth the effort.”

  • Orleans shuts out Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Orleans pounded seven extra-base hits and took advantage of eight Cannelton errors to beat the Bulldogs 14-0 in baseball Wednesday.
    The game was rained out before Cannelton got to bat in the bottom of the fifth, but because of the lopsided score the teams agreed to call it a complete game.
    Though Orleans hit the ball well, “we should’ve been going into the third inning 0-0,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “And we should have been out of the third with one run.”
