    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s volleyball team is still young, but Coach Becky Genet thinks the Commodores can be more competitive in the PLAC than in recent years.
    The Commodores went 13-17 last year, tying their best win total in the last four years. They were fourth in the seven-team PLAC with a 3-3 conference record.
    This year there are only two seniors and five juniors on the team’s 20-girl roster. For the second year in a row Genet will rely on two freshmen in the varsity rotation.

  • Be prepared for year without NBA...

    A lot of sports fans in this area say they prefer college basketball to the NBA, which may be a good thing for them this winter.
    Those who want to watch professional sports this winter might try hockey, which really is an exciting sport.
    Or those who must have their NBA fix each week might want to try watching the classic games that recently debuted on the NBA TV channel.
    Two games are alternated on Mondays and each is run at least four times so that nearly anyone can watch it, regardless of his work schedule.
