  • Paoli edges PC to claim PLAC...

    LEOPOLD—Paoli took advantage of big-play situations, defeating Perry Central 14-13 in PLAC football Friday.

    Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer said, “When you get two good teams in here like tonight there was going to be a play in there somewhere – there were two. I don’t think he (Paoli’s Tate Smith) was in on fourth down at the goal line.”

  • Commodores block Senators

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central made a season-high 20 blocks to beat West Washington 25-16, 25-7, 25-18 in PLAC volleyball Thursday.

    Megan Hedinger made seven blocks, Jessica Huber four, Ashley Gengelbach and Tessa Lynch three apiece, and Victoria Lutgring two.

    Hedinger also made 10 kills and Huber added nine.  Olivia Schroeder went 10 for 10 spiking with three kills.

    Sloan Harpenau had nine assists and Lynch added eight.

    Jennifer Kemp led the Commodores in digs with 13. Huber added eight and Lynch and Hilarie Hahus each made six.

  • Archers following NFL players...

    If you watched any NFL games Oct. 10, you probably noticed some of your favorite players and coaches wearing pink.

    Some had pink shoes, pink wristbands or headbands, or pink bills on their caps.

    That was to call attention to the fact that Oct. 10 was designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Sunday and this entire month has been designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

  • Perry Central finishes season 14...

    CAMPBELLSBURG—Hannah Harpenau made 11 kills as Perry Central beat West Washington 25-12, 16-25, 15-2 in eighth grade volleyball Thursday.

    That enabled the Commodores to finish the season with a 14-0 record.

    Sydney Goffinet added five kills, Eric Hill three, and Morgan Richardson two for the Commodores.

    Richardson also had 13 assists and Hillary Hubert added three.

    The Commodores also served 18 aces, with Goffinet getting five and Hubert, Hill and Harpenau each getting four.

  • Perry Central teams, Goffinet...

    MARENGO--Perry Central's boys and girls cross country teams each placed second in the 10-team Crawford County regional Saturday, thus advancing to this week's Brown County semistate.

    The top five teams in each race qualified for the semistate. Tell City's girls team just missed qualifying, finishing one point behind fifth-place New Albany.

    But Tell City sophomore Sarah Goffinet placed second in the girls race in 20:50.7 to qualify as an individual. The top 15 individuals in each race advanced, regardless of whether their team did.

  • PC boys win fourth consecutive...

    JASPER—The Jasper cross country sectional Tuesday looked like a rerun.

    Perry Central won the boys team title for the fourth year in a row and placed second to Heritage Hills in the girls race for the third year in a row.

    Tell City’s Sarah Goffinet repeated as individual champion in the girls race and Josh Genet of Northeast Dubois repeated as boys champion.

    And both Tell City teams again qualified for the regional, as the Marksmen placed fourth in both races. The top five teams advance.

  • Perry County teams get favorable...

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City and Perry Central received about as favorable pairings as they could ask for when the IHSAA made its football sectional drawings Tuesday.

    In Sectional 32, a Class 2A one, Tell City will host winless Crawford County for a first-round game at 7 p.m. Oct. 23.

    Perry Central will visit Springs Valley for a first-round game 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23 in Sectional 40, a Class A one.

    Springs Valley has beaten only Crawford County this year and lost a regular-season game to Perry Central 47-7 Saturday.

  • PC, Paoli in battle of unbeaten...

    LEOPOLD—For the second year in a row, Perry Central will face Paoli in a battle of unbeaten teams to decide the PLAC football title.

    And this time the game, set for Friday at 7 p.m. at Perry Central, could live up to the hype.

    Last year Perry Central amassed 383 yards of total offense to Paoli’s 105 and shut out the Rams 28-0.

    But the Rams are a more experienced team this year, as they return “eight or nine starters on offense,” noted Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer.

  • 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.

  • 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.
