  • 31 turnovers lead to PC girls...

    LEOPOLD—Claire Davis had a strong game inside, but Perry Central committed 31 turnovers in a 57-40 girls basketball loss to Corydon Tuesday.
    Corydon used two types of full-court presses, but the Commodores committed only a few turnovers in the full court.
    However, “when we got across half-court we just threw it away,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume. “Or we’d get a running start when we caught the ball and travel.”
    Corydon jumped to a 17-5 first-quarter lead.

    Next year a lot of them will likely go to Kassidie Hayes, Kammie Jo’s older sister.
    Malone signed Thursday to play volleyball for Brescia University, where Kassidie Hayes will be a senior middle hitter next year.

    LEOPOLD—Lexi Lashbrook took over the scoring in the middle of the game to lead Wood Memorial past Perry Central 34-28 in girls basketball Friday.

    The Trojans were 0 for 8 from the line in the first 9 1/2 minutes and hit just 8 of 27 for the game.
    Perry Central reserve Veronica Schwartz hit a three-pointer from the wing to tie the score 10-10 with 4:52 left in the first half.
