  • TC opponent has played two...

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s next football opponent has probably gained more respect in its last two losses than it did in a 4-1 start.

    Forest Park will bring a 4-4 record to Tell City Friday at 7 p.m.

    The Rangers, in just their second varsity season, were 4-1 after beating Pike Central Sept. 18, but Coach Terry Wagner admits that was the easier part of their schedule. The four teams they beat now have a combined 4-28 record, with two of them still winless.

  • No easy sectional draws for...

    INDIANAPOLIS—Each Perry County team drew one of the favorites in volleyball sectional pairings announced Monday by the IHSAA.

    In the six-team Class 2A sectional at Perry Central, Perry Central will play Mater Dei in the first match 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20. That will be followed by South Spencer vs. North Posey at approximately 7:15 p.m.

    The winners of those two matches will meet in the first semifinal match at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21.

  • Memorial outspikes Perry Central

    EVANSVILLE—Perry Central had only two players with more than one kill in a 25-15, 25-6, 25-18 volleyball loss to Evansville Memorial Monday.

    Jessica Huber made eight kills and 11 digs to lead Perry Central. Hilarie Hahus also made 11 digs and Megan Hedinger added six kills.

    Hedinger made three blocks and Ashley Gengelbach added two.

    Tessa Lynch had three assists and Sloan Harpenau served two aces.

    Memorial won the junior varsity match 25-15, 25-13.

  • South Central beats Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Cannelton made more spikes than usual but lost to South Central 25-20, 25-19, 25-18 in volleyball last Thursday.

    Sarah Powers made 10 spikes to lead Cannelton. Jaci Garrett and Hannah Baur each added eight and Whitney Nugent and Tora Walls each made five.

    Baur also made two blocks and served three aces. Nugent added two aces and Walls led the team in digs with five.

    Nakaa Myers and Shy May rotated at setter, “and when Shy was not setting she played back row and made some really good pass returns,” said Cannelton Coach Heather Garrison.

  • PC routs Blackhawks

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central stopped Springs Valley’s running game and Springs Valley couldn’t stop Perry Central’s running in PLAC football Saturday. The result was a 47-7 win for the Commodores that really wasn’t that close.

    Perry Central jumped to a 28-0 lead in the first 10 minutes.

    The Commodores led 41-0 after T.J. Hall ran 8 yards for a touchdown with 1:49 left in the third quarter.

  • Titans hold off Marksmen

    FORT BRANCH—Tell City had the edge in most statistics, but turnovers and a blocked punt on a muddy field hurt the Marksmen in a 17-14 PAC football loss to Gibson Southern Friday.

    “I think a dry field would’ve helped out both teams,” said Tell City Coach Don Hitz.

    True, but the conditions probably hurt the Marksmen more because they generally throw more passes than Gibson Southern.

    And with a wet ball to throw and little traction for receivers trying to run routes, it was virtually impossible to pass.

  • Kohnert's kills help Tell...

    TELL CITY—Elizabeth Kohnert made 15 kills and seven blocks as Tell City beat Paoli 25-15, 25-13, 25-14 in volleyball Thursday.

    McKenzie Hayes added nine kills and had 11 assists. Miranda Zuelly had 13 assists.

    Leslie Poole made two blocks and Hana Reed made nine digs.

    Jamie Brinksneader led Tell City servers with nine points. Poole and Reed each served eight points.

  • Commodores fall to Springs Valley

    FRENCH LICK—Perry Central went four games with the team ranked sixth in the state Class A volleyball coaches poll Thursday but lost.

    Springs Valley beat the Commodores 25-9, 24-26, 25-16, 25-14 in the PLAC match.

    Brittany Overstreet served three aces for Perry Central but the Commodores were able to get only one other ace down.

    They also found it hard to block Springs Valley’s spikes. The Commodores made just five blocks, including two by Ashley Gengelbach.

  • Kashyab makes All-PAC team

    TELL CITY—Anjan Kashyab has become the first Tell City freshman to make the All-PAC boys tennis team.

    Kashyab was selected to the nine-boy team last week in voting by conference coaches.

    He played No. 1 singles for the Marksmen nearly all season.

    He was 5-2 in No. 1 singles in PAC matches and 1-0 in No. 2 singles, which he played the first match of the season.

    He compiled a 9-5 overall record. He missed two matches in the Heritage Hills tourney due to sickness.
