  • Marksmen crush Crawford County

    TELL CITY—Tell City ran off 47 straight points in defeating Crawford County 47-7 in the opening round of the Class 2A football sectional Friday.

    After Crawford County scored on its first possession, the Marksmen scored on their next three possessions.

    Only the fact that they ran out of time at the half kept them from scoring on their fourth possession.

    The Marksmen held the Wolfpack to 184 total yards while racking up a season-high 405 yards themselves.

    They also had a season-high rushing total of 291 yards and a season high for points scored.

  • Rangers top Tell City in...

    TELL CITY—Bad serves at key times hurt Tell City in a 25-20, 25-11, 25-27, 25-20 Class 2A volleyball sectional semifinal loss to Forest Park Wednesday.

    The Marksmen trailed only 9-6 in the second game when they made a bad serve.

    Amanda Braunecker then served eight consecutive points for Forest Park to put the Rangers up 18-6. A kill by Josalyn Ress finally ended her serving turn.

    Tell City also made bad serves in the first game when trailing only 22-19 and in the fourth game when trailing only 17-15.

  • PC teams, Goffinet place 2nd in...

    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.

    “I knew it’d be close between us and New Albany,” said Tell City Coach Katie Chinn. “We’d only run against them once—we beat them in the North Harrison invitational.”

  • Marksmen favored to beat...

    TELL CITY—After upsetting Forest Park last week, Tell City’s football team will be favored to win its second game in a row when the Marksmen host Crawford County in the first round of the Class 2A sectional Friday at 6:30 p.m.

    Crawford County is 0-9 and has given up an average of 34.1 points per game while scoring only 9.7 points per game.

    Among 318 football teams in the state, the Wolfpack are ranked 308th in Jeff Sagarin’s computer rankings with a 16.61 rating.

  • PC, Blackhawks to meet again

    FRENCH LICK—Barring another flash flood, Springs Valley will finally get to host Perry Central for a football game Friday at 6:30 p.m.

    The two were scheduled to play at Springs Valley Oct. 9, but flooding that week left the Blackhawks’ field under three feet of water.

    So the game was moved to Perry Central and played the next game. Because it was supposed to be the Blackhawks’ final regular-season home game, they held their senior day at Perry Central.

  • Tell City clips Rangers in OT

    TELL CITY—Trent Gunn threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Trent Benningfield on first down in overtime as Tell City beat Forest Park 21-20 in PAC football Friday.

    Forest Park had gone on offense first in overtime and had scored on third down on a 15-yard pass from Grant Welp to Kyle Schwinghamer.

    The Rangers, who don’t have a strong place-kicker, tried for a two-point conversion, but their pass fell incomplete.

    Benningfield’s touchdown then tied the game, so all Tell City had to do to win was kick the extra point.

  • 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.

  • 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.
