    But both did have some strong individual performances.
    Emmons won the 100 hurdles in 16.49 seconds, 25-hundredths of a second faster than her winning time last year.

  • PLAC should go to separate track...

    I don’t believe everyone always has to follow the crowd - if I did, I would not be a Boston Red Sox baseball fan and UNLV basketball fan living in southern Indiana.
    But when all but one athletic conference in southern Indiana follows one format for its conference track meets, perhaps the only one that does not follow that format should consider doing so.
    The Pocket Athletic, Southern Indiana Athletic, Big Eight and Blue Chip conferences all hold their girls conference track meet on Tuesday and boys meet on Thursday the week before the sectionals.

  • Tell City gets 2 PAC baseball...

    TELL CITY—Preston Hendershot pitched a two-hitter as Tell City beat Southridge 2-1 in PAC baseball Thursday.

    He walked only one and struck out two.
    “Preston consistently got ahead of batters and only threw 87 pitches in a complete seven-inning game,” noted Tell City Coach Trent Benningfield.
    He added, “We played a very solid game on defense and backed up Preston almost all game.

    TELL CITY—Last year Tell City had to come from behind late to win the PAC boys track meet by 1.5 points.
    And this year the Marksmen entered the meet without their top 800-meter runner and had no entry in the pole vault.
    But they used strong depth in other events to win the nine-team meet by 42.5 points over runner-up Gibson Southern.
    They won seven events, including all the distance races.
    Senior sprinter Cameron Kessinger won two individual events and a relay.
