  • Corydon overtakes Commodores

    CORYDON—Corydon scored four runs on just two hits in the fifth inning to beat Perry Central 6-4 in age-14 baseball Saturday.

    Two walks and an error also helped fuel that rally.

    “We had a couple of errors that let some guys score,” said Perry Central Coach Brian Cassidy.

    Adam Kleaving hit a home run and a single and drove in two runs to lead Perry Central’s seven-hit attack in the seven-inning game.

    His home run cleared the left-field fence near the 330-foot marking.

    Colten Hedinger added one hit and drew two walks.

    BRETZVILLE—Stephanie Fougeroussse pitched a three-hitter and Jenica Ringo hit a two-run homer as Linton-Stockton beat Tell City 3-0 to win the Forest Park Class 2A girls softball regional June 6.

    Linton-Stockton improved to 20-5 with its 15th consecutive win. Tell City finished the season 17-9.

    BRETZVILLE—Josalyn Ress pitched a one-hitter and Amber Thomas drove in two runs as Tell City beat Clarksville 3-0 in the first round of the Class 2A girls softball regional Saturday.

    The game started well for Clarksville, as the Generals’ first hitter, Brooke Miley, beat out a slap hit to the shortstop by about a step.

    Amber Wingler sacrificed Miley to second. But on a possible fake-bunt situation by the next batter, Tell City catcher Lauren Goffinet threw Miley out trying to steal third.

    LINCOLN CITY—Tell City’s Mike Maddle and Trent Gunn were named to the All-PAC baseball team in voting by conference coaches Monday.

    Gunn, a sophomore, was one of the four infielders selected.

    Maddle led the Marksmen with a .486 batting average (34 for 70), the third highest in team history.

    He hit five home runs and seven doubles, drove in 19 runs, and scored 29 runs.

  • Goffinet on All-PAC

    LINCOLN CITY—Tell City senior catcher Lauren Goffinet was named to the All-PAC girls softball team in voting by conference coaches.

    The team was selected June 1 but not released until June 15 as some coaches asked that it not be released while some PAC teams were still playing in the state tourney.

    Goffinet made the 15-girl team as one of the utility players and Tell City sophomore Josalyn Ress received honorable mention as a pitcher.
