  • Paoli beats PC in last inning...

    PAOLI—Errors and a wild pitch helped Paoli pass Perry Central in the bottom of the last inning twice in seventh grade baseball Monday.

    The teams played two five-inning games. Perry Central led 4-3 going into the bottom of the fifth inning of the first game, and Adam Dauby struck out the first two Paoli batters that inning.

    But errors by the shortstop and right fielder allowed the tying run to score, and a single produced the winning run.

  • Huber named All-American again

    DES MOINES, Iowa— Perry Central graduate Nick Huber concluded his Cornell college track career June 7 by placing 11th in the NCAA decathlon and nearly equaling his personal and school record with 7,616 points.

    The last part of the decathlon was the 1500 run, in which Huber placed fifth in 4:29.99.
