  • Patriots speed past Tell City

    TELL CITY—Three long plays by David Maldonado helped Heritage Hills defeat Tell City 63-13 in PAC football Friday.

    Maldonado scored the game’s first touchdown on a 24-yard pass from Cody Schmitt.

    Tell City tied the score 7-7, though, on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Nick Kleaving to Kyle Osborne on the first play of the second quarter.

    The Marksmen still trailed only 21-7 at halftime. But Maldonado returned the third-quarter kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown.

    Three plays later he made a 33-yard punt return to the Tell City 9-yard line.

  • Fenn running for Vincennes

    VINCENNES—Tell City graduate Alex Fenn is running cross country and track for Vincennes University.

    Fenn agreed to accept an athletic scholarship from the Trail Blazers earlier this summer and reported to practice cross country practice this month.

    He said Friday that he’s not sure where he ranks on the team “because I’m injured right now (a leg injury). It’ll be gone soon, though, I hope.”

  • Commodores shut out South Decatur

    GREENSBURG--Perry Central used a balanced rushing attack and strong defense against the run to shut out South Decatur 21-0 in football Saturday.

    The Commodores held South Decatur to 18 yards rushing on 22 carries while gaining 299 yards themselves on 46 carries.

    Quarterback Dee Jay Shaw scored Perry Central's first touchdown on a 1-yard run on the game's opening series.

    T.J. Hall scored the next one on a 3-yard run and Mikey Wilkerson scored the final one on a 1-yard run.

  • North Harrison nips Perry Central

    RAMSEY—Perry Central had good statistics in every category but fell short to North Harrison 23-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-22 in volleyball Thursday.

    Jessica Huber made eight kills, Megan Hedinger six, Victoria Lutgring four, and Ashley Gengelbach three for the Commodores.

    Hedinger also made four blocks and Huber added three.

    Tessa Lynch had 16 assists and Jennifer Kemp added eight.

    Sloan Harpenau went 19 for 19 serving with three aces and Hilarie Hahus went 23 for 23 with two aces.

  • Marksmen’s passing off...

    FORT BRANCH—Poor passing contributed to Tell City’s 25-13, 25-19, 25-23 loss to Gibson Southern in PAC volleyball Thursday.

    “That’s where we got killed—because our passing is not consistent,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

    She also noted that injuries continued to bother the Marksmen, as starting setter Miranda Zuelly missed this match. “We’ve had one person out every match,” said Hayes.

    Elizabeth Kohnert led Tell City hitters with 10 kills and five blocks.

  • Serving problems hurt Cannelton...

    ORLEANS—Cannelton made seven bad serves and served only one ace in a 25-9, 25-12, 25-11 volleyball loss to Orleans Thursday.

    “That was one of our downfalls,” Cannelton Coach Heather Garrison said of the Bulldogs’ serving problems.

    Hannah Baur led the Bulldogs in kills with two. Tora Walls and Sammie James each added one.

    Whitney Nugent, Baur, James and Shy May each made one dig.

    “Whitney Nugent probably played her best games of the season overall, passing and serving,” said Garrison.

  • Varsity Commodores have no home...

    Perry Central has one of the top boys cross country teams in the state, ranked 23rd by IndianaRunner.com last week.

    But Perry Central fans won’t get to see this team perform at home this year.

    For several years the Commodores have hosted the Perry-Spencer invitational, but this year it will be for junior high teams only, as all the varsity teams in those two counties have decided not to compete that day.

  • PC anticipates Cougars will put...

    GREENSBURG—South Decatur won its opening football game Friday mainly with its running game. But Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer will have his defense ready for a lot of passing when the two meet Saturday at 4 p.m.

    “They’ve got some quickness,” said Spencer. “They scored on a lot of sweeps (in last week’s 51-8 season-opening win over Cambridge City Lincoln).”

    But the Cougars also had some quick backs and scored on several sweeps in their season opener two years ago.

  • Fast Patriots to test Tell City

    TELL CITY—Tell City will have its hands full trying to contain Heritage Hills’ team speed when they meet in PAC football Friday at 7 p.m.

    “They’ve got a lot of team speed,” said Tell City Coach Don Hitz. “They returned a couple of punts and interceptions for touchdowns last week.”

    That was in a 68-0 season-opening win at Vincennes Lincoln in which the Patriots built a 55-0 lead by halftime.
