    Hedinger went 15 for 22 spiking with eight kills and Huber went 21 for 27 with seven kills.

    Olivia Schroeder added four kills and Victoria Lutgring three.

    Hedinger also made five blocks and Lutgring added three.

    Freshman Jennifer Kemp aided the hitters with 12 sets. Tessa Lynch added eight and Sloan Harpenau three.

  • Serve reception hurts Tell City...

    TELL CITY—Poor serve reception hurt Tell City in a 25-11, 26-24, 25-12 volleyball loss to Evansville Memorial Tuesday.

    Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes said her top two back-row passers combined to go 17 for 47 on serve-reception in the first game.

    “Then they did really well the second game, but the third game was about like the first game.”

    She also said, “We struggled tonight on blocking” against the taller Tigers.

  • Commodores run past Corydon 14-0

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central got its ball-control running game going in the second half to defeat Corydon 14-0 in football Friday.

    The Commodores had some good runs in their scoreless first half, including a 17-yard gain by T.J. Hall on their first possession.

    But they fumbled on the next play, and Corydon recovered it.

    Perry Central had another first-half drive stalled by two consecutive holding penalties caused by “maybe trying a little bit too hard,” said Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer.

  • Stemple, Wildcats overpower Tell...

    MOUNT VERNON—Tell City couldn’t get its offense going consistently and couldn’t stop Jason Stemple as the Marksmen lost to Mount Vernon 43-6 in football Friday.

    Mount Vernon got out to an early lead after a stalled Tell City drive. Stemple drove the Wildcats down the field and connected with wide receiver Aaron Straub for a short touchdown pass.

    Stemple ran for the two-point conversion, giving the Wildcats an 8-0 lead.

  • Raiders stop Marksmen's...

    TELL CITY—Tell City couldn’t get its spiking attack going consistently as it lost to Southridge 25-12, 25-21, 25-11 in PAC volleyball Thursday.

    The Marksmen were playing shorthanded, with McKenzie Hayes (mild concussion) and Leslie Poole (hamstring) both sidelined by injuries.

    “We had a lot of people out of position, especially in the back row,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

  • TC boys shooting for semistate

    TELL CITY—Tell City boys cross country coach Chris Hollinden thinks only two teams from the Jasper sectional will make it to the semistate this year, and he thinks his squad has a good chance to be one of them.

    “Perry Central is the overwhelming favorite in the sectional,” said Hollinden Thursday. “We should be second—it should be between us and Jasper. They beat us by one point today. Heritage Hills and Forest Park could be there too—we’re all pretty close.”

  • Marksman girls team lacks depth

    TELL CITY—Sarah Goffinet gives Tell City’s cross country team a strong No. 1 runner again this year, but the Marksmen are lacking in depth.

    Goffinet won the PAC and sectional meets last year as a freshman and placed 10th in the semistate to qualify for the state meet.

    She took up where she left off last year in Thursday’s season-opening Forest Park invitational, winning the race in 21:51.

    Other letter winners returning from last year are Andyn Rowe, Brittany Waninger, Mariah Nix and Erika Hauenstein.

  • Orleans overtakes PC in five...

    ORLEANS—Orleans overcame a 2-0 deficit in games to beat Perry Central 23-25, 23-25, 25-18, 25-9, 15-12 in PLAC volleyball Thursday.

    “We played really well the first two games,” said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet. “And the next two games we couldn’t do anything right. We were hitting balls into the net and hitting balls out of bounds.”

    Perry Central built a 6-0 lead in the fifth game but again had some errors after that.

  • Quickness, experience strengths...

    LEOPOLD—Good quickness, including returning starters at both running back positions and five of the seven defensive positions behind the line, should help Perry Central remain one of the state’s top Class A football teams this year.

    The Commodores went 10-1 last year and won the PLAC for the fifth year in a row and seventh time in the last eight.

    They return their top two rushers from that team, senior T.J. Hall and junior Mikey Wilkerson. Hall rushed for 1,635 yards last year, averaging 7.6 yards per carry, and scored 24 touchdowns.

  • Marksmen return strong running...

    TELL CITY—An experienced backfield and more experience than last year on defense and the offensive line should help Tell City’s football team improve on last year’s 0-10 record.

    Last year tailback Trent Gunn and fullback Kyle Osborne were the only Marksmen who had started more than one game on offense the previous season.

    This year they return along with junior quarterback Nick Kleaving from last year’s backfield.
