    Playing No. 1 singles all four years for the Marksmen, Kashyab went 7-1 in the conference this year and 15-3 overall.

    LINCOLN CITY—Shane Shelton scored three goals as South Spencer beat Tell City 4-1 in the first round of the Heritage Hills Class A boys soccer sectional Monday.

    Despite the loss, Tell City Coach Austin Fischer “felt like we played a pretty decent game. We definitely showed improvement since the beginning of the year.

    “Their second goal was a fluke—it hit Casey (May, Tell City’s goalie) in the back and bounced off the pole and went in.

    LEOPOLD—Springs Valley has scored at least 46 points in three of its football games and only one touchdown in each of the other four games, including a 50-6 loss at Tecumseh last week.

    Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson expects the 3-4 Blackhawks to bounce back for their 7 p.m. game at Perry Central Friday, though. “It’s always a good game when they play us,” he said Monday.

    TELL CITY—Gibson Southern’s football team finished 4-7 last year but is 6-1 this year and averaging 35.7 points per game. So are the Titans the surprise of the PAC?

    “I don’t think so,” Tell City Coach Ryan George said Monday as his team was preparing to host the Titans Friday at 7 p.m. “I thought they had talent last year.”

  • Perry Central girls, boys win...

    PAOLI—The definition of dominating a conference cross country meet is even a team’s non-scorers (its sixth and seventh runners) make all-conference.

    Perry Central accomplished that again in winning the PLAC boys meet Tuesday with 20 points, 49 ahead of runner-up Mitchell.

    All seven Perry Central runners made all-conference by placing in the top 10. The Commodores also had seven make all-conference in 2009 and 2010 and six in 2011, 2007 and 1996.

    TELL CITY—All five Tell City scorers placed in the top 17 but none were in the top nine as the Marksmen finished third in the PAC boys cross country meet Saturday.

    Forest Park won with 41 points. Tell City scored 69, two behind second-place Gibson Southern.

    “We’re very disappointed,” said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden. “We felt like we had a legitimate chance at giving Forest Park a run for the money. They flat out put it to us early on and we didn’t respond.”

  • You know, that there, you know,...

    Back in the days of Mike Gminski and Gene Banks, Duke University hired someone to coach its basketball players on how to speak properly in interviews.
    I’m not sure if any team still does that, but judging by the number of “you knows” I hear in nearly every interview with a sports figure—usually about two per sentence—I doubt it.
