    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s baseball team has its third coach in three years and has not had a winning record in the last seven years.
    Jeremy Edwards hopes to bring stability to the coaching position, which he thinks could lead to more victories.
    Edwards was not hired until after school started this year, so he wasn’t able to run a summer program for the team, though he plans to do so in the future.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls track team has increased depth in sprints but fewer than usual distance runners this season.
    The Marksmen have 18 girls on their roster. “We are two down from last year, but I think depth-wise we might be a little bit better in the sprints, which has not been a deep area for us in the past few seasons,” said Coach Katie Weyer.

    TELL CITY—Coach Zac Hartz thinks a strong group of sprinters and distance runners could give Tell City its fifth PAC boys track title in seven years.
    Hartz said he “would think the short sprints and all the distance races would be our strongest events. When you’ve got the entire cross country team that placed 10th in the state, you’ve got quite a bit to work with (in distance races).”

    TELL CITY—Tell City won four of the 11 events but Southridge edged the Marksmen for first place in the PAC junior high girls swim meet Thursday.
    Southridge scored 295 points. Tell City was second with 281 and Heritage Hills was third in the six-team meet with 187.
    Fifth graders were not allowed to compete in the conference meet, so that took away some of Tell City’s swimmers from its undefeated regular season.
