  • Perry Central’s great sports...

    Last October I wrote that this could be the best school year ever for Perry Central sports, and that has proven to be the case.
    The Commodores have won one regional, four sectionals, and eight of 10 possible conference titles so far.
    Three sectional titles and one conference one (boys golf) remain to be decided.
    The four sectional titles in one school year are the most for any school in Perry County history.

    JASPER—Perry Central set three school records, tied another, and set personal records and/or exceeded seeds in most events to repeat as boys track sectional champions Thursday.
    Based on seeds, Forest Park was favored by 10 points over Perry Central. But the Commodores won with 140.5 points. 4.5 more than the runner-up Rangers.
    Tell City placed third with 98.5 and Cannelton, with just three boys competing, was 11th with one point.

  • Wood Memorial outscores Bulldogs

    OAKLAND CITY—Wood Memorial scored in every inning to beat Cannelton 18-8 in girls softball Monday.
    Cannelton had eight hits and had two big innings of its own, scoring five runs in the fourth and three in the fifth.
    But “we have a hard time making routine plays in the field,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.
    Mikah Hemmings hit a single and a double to lead Cannelton’s offense. Allicyn Garrett also had two hits.
    Mollie Ingle and Hemmings each pitched three innings for Cannelton, each walking two and striking out one.

  • Perry Central outhits Wolfpack...

    MARENGO—Tanner Cassidy had three hits and Trey Mullis hit a home run as Perry Central beat Crawford County 6-5 in PLAC baseball Tuesday.
    Mullis, Anthony Mosby and Alton Cummings each had two of the Commodores’ 12 hits, and Michael Landers hit a double.
    Cassidy and Cummings each drove in two runs.
    Cassidy also pitched a complete game for the win. He scattered eight hits and three walks and struck out 10.
    Perry Central batters had no strikeouts, which pleased Coach Phil Zellers.

  • Baseball sectional pairings drawn

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City got the toughest match-up among Perry County teams when the IHSAA drew its baseball sectional pairings Tuesday.
    Tell City will face Mater Dei, ranked No. 3 in the state, in the first round of the seven-team, Class 2A Southridge sectional at Huntingburg League Stadium Wednesday, May 22, at 6:30 p.m. (all times are Perry County times).
    The winner of that game will face Southridge, which drew the first-round bye, in the semifinals 10 a.m. Monday, May 27.

  • Commodores down Wolfpack; Tell...

    TELL CITY—James Rogier shot a 9-over-par 44 to lead Perry Central past Crawford County 189-201 in boys golf Tuesday.

  • Commodores win PLAC softball...

    LEOPOLD—Brooke Litherland drove in four runs with two triples as Perry Central trounced Orleans 12-0 Monday to win the PLAC girls softball title outright.
    The Commodores beat West Washington 4-1 Saturday to clinch at least a share of the PLAC title. But Orleans, which had lost only to Paoli 2-1, still stood in the way of the Commodores’ first outright conference title.

  • Bulldogs edge Trojans, top...

    CANNELTON—Brandon Cook’s bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 10th inning gave Cannelton an 8-7 baseball win over Wood Memorial Monday.
    That was the Bulldogs’ third win in a row, raising their record to 8-7. That is their most victories in a season in 17 years, since the 1996 team finished 14-15.
    Jonah Day, Wood Memorial’s third pitcher of the game, gave up four walks in the 10th inning.
    “He threw pretty hard but he was kind of all over the place a little bit,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.

    TELL CITY—Tell City took better advantage of its opponents’ defensive mistakes to beat Perry Central 9-4 in baseball Monday.
    Tell City’s Chris Schaefer and Perry Central’s Anthony Mosby gave strong pitching performances, but there weren’t many other outstanding features in the game.
    Neither team hit the ball really hard, with neither getting an extra-base hit. Five of Tell City’s 10 hits and three of Perry Central’s four were infield hits.
