  • Playing JV baseball, softball...

    Usually in varsity/JV baseball and softball dates, the varsity game is played first.

    But the JV contest was played first in Tell City’s home baseball games with Breckinridge County (apparently at Breckinridge County’s request) and Perry Central’s girls softball games at Southridge Thursday, despite the fact that the weather forecast was calling for rain later in the afternoon.

    At both sites they were lucky enough to get the varsity games in before it rained.

    But Orleans put its hits together better, especially in the seventh inning.
