  • Tell City girls place 3rd at...

    DUBOIS—Sarah Goffinet was the individual winner as Tell City placed third in the Northeast Dubois girls cross country invitational Tuesday.

    Bedford-North Lawrence won with 46 points. Jasper scored 96 and Tell City 108.

    “We are creeping closer to Jasper (a team the Marksmen could have to beat to qualify for the regional),” noted Tell City Coach Katie Chinn.

    Goffinet won in 20:13 and Andyn Rowe was 10th in 21:34.

  • Mitchell can’t stop PC...

    LEOPOLD—Mitchell couldn’t stop Perry Central’s ball-control running game but Perry Central contained Mitchell’s speed most of the time Friday.

    The result was a 21-7 football victory for the Commodores that raised their record to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in the PLAC.

    Perry Central opened with one of its patented, ball-control touchdown drives fueled mainly by short runs by T.J. Hall and Mikey Wilkerson.

  • Vikings build early lead to beat...

    TELL CITY—North Posey scored on its first four possessions in defeating Tell City 45-22 in PAC football Friday.

    The Vikings’ Cameron Calvert rushed for 209 yards on 28 carries and scored touchdowns on runs of 3, 4, 2, and 18 yards.

    North Posey outrushed the Marksmen 308 yards to 97 yards. 

    North Posey Coach Joe Gengelbach said, “Our offensive line is coming together. We are young and only have one senior (there). It has allowed our running backs to get to the second level, then it is up to them.”

  • Wildcats hold off Tell City

    TELL CITY—Mater Dei made more kills than Tell City to beat the Marksmen 26-24, 25-23, 25-22 in volleyball Thursday.

    “It was probably the best game we’ve played all year hustle-wise,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “And we played a well rounded game.

    “We’ve got to work on a couple rotations, though. Where we lost is when we stopped attacking.”

    She said some of the Marksman hitters would resort to dinking too much after getting a spike or two blocked.

  • Perry Central falls to Jasper

    JASPER—Strong defense helped Jasper beat Perry Central 25-13, 25-8, 25-9 in volleyball Thursday.

    The Wildcats held Perry Central to fewer kills and ace serves than usual.

    Megan Hedinger led the Commodores with seven kills and Jessica Huber was next with four.

    Hedinger also made three blocks and Ashley Gengelbach added two.

    No one served more than one ace for the Commodores.

    Jennifer Kemp had seven assists and Tessa Lynch added five.

    Hilarie Hahus made nine digs, Sloan Harpenau six, and Huber and Lynch five apiece.

  • Wolfpack defeats Cannelton

    MARENGO—Cannelton had one of its better spiking games but lost to Crawford County 25-11, 25-8, 25-17 in volleyball Thursday.

    Hannah Baur made 12 spikes, Jaci Garrett 10, Allicyn Garrett and Whitney Nugent five apiece, and Sammie James and Sarah Powers four apiece for the Bulldogs.

    James and Shy May each recorded two kills.

    May made 27 sets and Nakaa Myers added 15.

    Powers made five digs and Jaci Garrett and Shy May each added four.

    Jaci Garrett served the Bulldogs’ only ace.

  • Perry Central’s boys...

    JASPER—The Jasper invitational is generally regarded as a preview of the cross country  sectionals to be held on the same course two weeks later, so Tuesday’s invitational results bode well for Perry Central.

    The Commodores won the boys meet and their girls placed second to Heritage Hills.

    Individually, Tell City’s Sarah Goffinet, the defending champion in the girls sectional, looks ready to repeat as she won Tuesday in 20:54.33, 17.14 seconds ahead of runner-up Cecilia Oxford of Heritage Hills.

  • PC holds off Mitchell

    LEOPOLD—A balanced spiking attack helped Perry Central beat Mitchell 25-17, 19-25, 27-25, 25-20 in PLAC volleyball Tuesday.

    Early in the season the Commodores relied mainly on two players for kills. But Tuesday Jessica Huber made 11, Megan Hedinger and Olivia Schroeder each added seven, Ashley Gengelbach made five, and Victoria Lutgring contributed four.

    Tessa Lynch aided the hitters with a season-high 20 assists and Sloan Harpenau added seven.

  • Mitchell’s option runs...

    LEOPOLD—Containing Mitchell’s option plays will be Perry Central’s main concern in Friday’s 7 p.m. PLAC football game.

    “Their running game has been the best thing for them,” said Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer of the 3-3 Bluejackets. “They’ll run some sweeps and they’ll run off tackle some, but one of their most productive things has been the option.”

  • Tell City to host Vikings

    TELL CITY—Confidence might be the main thing Tell City needs to compete with North Posey in the Marksmen’s football homecoming game Friday at 7:30 p.m.

    North Posey is 3-3 but has been so up and down this season “it’s hard to get a reading on them,” said Tell City defensive coordinator Ronnie Robinson. “We’re going to have to watch a lot of film on them this week.”
