    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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Marksmen fall to Southridge in...

    TELL CITY—No Tell City player shot under 59 as the Marksmen lost to Southridge 235-266 in girls golf Monday.

    Jessica Ballman shot a 59 to lead the Marksmen.

    C.J. Fentress shot a 63, Amber Fentress 69, and Kelly Hess 75 to complete the Marksmen’s scoring.

    Southridge’s Sara Boeglin shot a 46 for medalist honors.

    “All things considered it was probably our worst performance,” said Tell City Coach Jim Meek. “We can do far better than that. We had a chance to win this one and we didn’t have our heads in the game.”

  • PC boys third at Terre Haute

    TERRE HAUTE—All five Perry Central scorers placed in the top 25 as the Commodores finished third in Terre Haute South’s seven-team boys cross country invitational Saturday.

    The Commodores are ranked 23rd in the state by IndianaRunner.com this week. But two of the teams ranked ahead of them, Bloomington South and Martinsville, were also in this meet, so Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett was pleased with his team’s finish.

    “We really had a good day,” said Barnett. “A lot of our guys ran faster than last year.

  • Tell City boys 2nd, girls tie...

    NEW ALBANY—Tell City placed four pairs of boys in the top 25 to place second in Clarksville’s 10-team hokum karem cross country meet Tuesday.

    In a hokum karem meet each runner runs three one-mile segments, alternating with a partner. Places of three duos are added together to form a team score.
