  • Commodores finish 22nd in state...

    TERRE HAUTE—Eric Scheiber finished 52nd to lead Perry Central to 22nd place in the 24-team IHSAA boys cross country state meet Saturday.

    Scheiber, a junior, ran the muddy 3.1-mile course in 17:15.5 to finish in the top 27 percent of the 196-runner field.

    “Eric had a great race,” said Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett. “He just keeps getting better. He ran what he was supposed to. He’s definitely going to be a legitimate top 25 contender next year.”

  • Rain puts a damper on fall...

    This was the 32nd fall sports season that I have covered for the News and the one in which rain affected the performances most.

    Many years it will rain on one Friday during the football season, but this year it rained six consecutive Fridays, with last week being the worst.

    By the time the football season ended for Perry County teams Friday, most fields were nothing but a muddy mess.

  • Wilgus triple winner in meet

    BOONVILLE—Ross Wilgus was a triple winner for the Tell City Swim Club in Boonville’s invitational last weekend.

    Wilgus won the age-6-and-under boys 25-yard freestyle in 23.59 seconds, the 100 free in 2:02.71, and the 50 backstroke in 1:04.49.

    In the same age group Alec Stahly placed second in the 100 free in 2:43.53, second in the 25 free in 34.04, and third in the 50 back in 1:23.15.

    Sara Hagedorn placed second in the girls 13-and-over 400 individual medley in 6:48.13.

  • Cougars hold off PC in mud bowl

    LEOPOLD—Fumbles and blocked punts that probably would not have happened on a dry field played key roles in North Daviess’ 14-7 win over Perry Central in Class A football sectional semifinals Friday.

    Though the game featured two of the top five Class A teams in the state, each team fumbled six times and lost three on the extremely muddy field made worse by rain falling steadily throughout the game.

  • North Posey's big second...

    POSEYVILLE—Tell City traveled to North Posey in the second round of Class 2A football sectional action Friday, but after a day of heavy rain the Marksmen were bogged down in the Posey County mud.

    Tell City lost the game 21-0.

    Action started out positive for Tell City after North Posey fumbled on the first play from scrimmage and it was recovered by the Marksmen.

    Tell City could not move the ball, though, and turned it back over to North Posey on downs.

    Neither offense could cross the goal line in the first quarter.

  • Perry Central 22nd in state meet

    TERRE HAUTE--Eric Scheiber finished 52nd to lead Perry Central to 22nd place in the 24-team IHSAA boys cross country state meet Saturday.

    Scheiber ran the 3.1-mile course in 17:15.5 to finish in the top 27 percent of the 196-runner field.

    Other Perry Central scorers were Ian Bashor, 118th in 17:55.0; Michael Ernst, 123rd in 17:59.0; Jake Schwartz, 138th in 18:06.5; and Neal Schwartz, 161st in 18:23.6.

    Freshman Alex Newton was right behind Neal Schwartz, finishing 162nd in 18:23.9. Noah Gatwood was the Commodores' seventh runner, finishing 189th in 19:20.6.
