  • Commodores outrun Rangers to win...

    DUBOIS—Last year Perry Central’s boys track team faced Forest Park several times but did not beat the Rangers until the Northeast Dubois Relays, their last meeting before the sectional.
    Friday the Commodores won six of the 14 events to win the Northeast Dubois Relays and again beat Forest Park for the first time this season, 134.5 to 126.5. So Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett hopes that is a good omen for the sectional again.
    Strong distance running propelled the Commodores to victory.
