  • Storms alter sports schedules

    PERRY COUNTY—Heavy rains forced postponement of all four sports events involving Perry County teams Saturday.
    Tell City’s home PAC baseball game with North Posey has been rescheduled for 2 p.m. May 20.
    No new dates were announced for the Shoals at Cannelton baseball game or South Central at Perry Central and Cannelton at Crothersville softball games.

  • Braves, Rangers top Marksmen

    TELL CITY—Tell City had only three hits in a 5-1 PAC softball loss to Forest Park Tuesday.
    Tell City batters had only four strikeouts. “We put the ball in play but just not hard enough to get past the infield,” said Tell City Coach Maggie Schuetter.
    Forest Park had five hits but also took advantage of four Tell City errors.
    “We made a few simple errors but we continue to work on fundamentals and are improving with every game,” said Schuetter.

  • Commodores held to 2 hits

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central had only two hits in an 11-1 PLAC softball loss to Orleans Monday.
    “We had one of our worst hitting games of the season,” said Perry Central Coach Mark Rothgerber. “And we did not pitch well at the beginning.
    “Getting behind on the count and walking some batters and a couple hit batters put us in the hole from the start. Orleans capitalized on it by hitting a grand slam in the first inning.”
    Orleans scored five runs that inning and three the next to take a quick 8-0 lead.

  • Perry Central 2nd in Springs...

    FRENCH LICK—Springs Valley is usually one of the favorites in PLAC boys golf, but Perry Central beat the Blackhawks on their home course Monday.
    Forest Park won the three-team match with 160 strokes. Perry Central shot 175 and Springs Valley 181.
    South Central did not have enough players for a team score, as it had only two golfers competing.
    All six Perry Central golfers shot under 50. Zach James led the team with a 2-over-par 38, one stroke behind medalist Logan Russell of Springs Valley.
    James birdied the par-5, No. 7 hole.

  • New football sectionals favor PC...

    Tell City and Perry Central will be in the same class in football next year but are not likely to meet in the postseason.
    Though they are in the same county and roughly only 15 miles apart, the IHSAA, in its infinite wisdom, saw fit Monday to place them in different Class 2A sectionals for the next two years.
    Perry Central could have to make a long trip east to play Switzerland County in a sectional game. But the good news for the Commodores is they are in a much easier sectional than Tell City’s.
