    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s football team has only two full-time starters returning on offense and two on defense. But several other returnees saw extensive action last year, which makes it likely that the Commodores will reload instead of rebuilding this year.
    Travis James, who made junior all-state at tackle last year, and Hunter LaGrange are the only full-time offensive starters back. And LaGrange is switching from fullback to tailback.

    TELL CITY—The good news for Tell City’s girls golf team is it returns three starters from last year.
    The bad news is there is only one other player on the team, a senior who just started playing golf 1 1/2 weeks ago. And the Marksmen graduated their top player from last year’s 3-22 team.
    Returnees for the Marksmen are seniors Jessica Ballman and Amber Fentress and sophomore Jenny Hess.
