    LEOPOLD—Perry Central sophomores Sydney Goffinet and Morgan Richardson were voted onto the All-PLAC girls softball team by conference coaches Thursday.
    Perry Central Coach Mark Rothgerber was pleased to get those two on the team but said he thought catcher Brooke Litherland “should have” made it too. “To my mind she’s the best catcher in the conference.”
    Goffinet played first base and hit .400 in the regular season. She went 2 for 3 in the Commodores’ sectional game.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central senior Colt Brown and juniors Tanner Cassidy and Derek Thomas were named to the All-PLAC baseball team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

    He went 2-2 in the conference with a 0.26 ERA and 27 strikeouts.
    One of his conference losses was 1-0 to Crawford County. In the other one he was hurt by unearned runs.

    The team was selected by conference coaches May 20 but not released until this week because some coaches asked that it not be released until after their sectionals were over.
