    LEOPOLD—Good quickness, along with better ball-handling and shooting, could help Perry Central’s girls basketball team improve on last year’s 3-20 record.
    “We play really hard and we’ve got some quickness,” said Ty Guillaume, who is starting his fifth season as the team’s head coach. “I wouldn’t say it’s the fastest group we’ve had overall, but we’ve got some quick girls at different positions.”

    NASHVILLE—Perry Central senior Elizabeth Dauby ran her fastest time of the season, 20:57.8, as she finished 90th among 176 runners in Brown County’s girls cross country semistate Saturday.
    “It was a PR for her for the season,” said Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett. “She didn’t quite run as fast this year as she did last year.
    “The times ended up being a little faster than what we thought. It was a great day to run.”

  • Tell City should remain cross...

    Some thoughts on the local fall sports season, with only the state cross country meet remaining and with the girls basketball regular season starting in eight days:
    Lost in the celebration of Tell City’s boys cross county team’s winning three consecutive regionals and qualifying for the state meet three straight years is the fact that the Marksmen are also closing in on the record for most consecutive titles in the Jasper sectional, a record that has stayed in Perry County for decades.

  • Williams, Pioneers run past PC

    Sports Correspondent

    LEPOLD—Perry Central’s defense couldn’t slow down Providence running back Kaden Williams in a 48-15 football sectional loss Friday.
    Williams, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound junior speedster, carried the ball 20 times for 279 yards and six touchdowns.
    Perry Central was forced to punt from its 40-yard line on its first possession. But the shanked punt went only 4 yards, giving Providence possession at the Commodore 44.
