  • Two league teams suffer first...

    TELL CITY — Many thought Frederick Sheet Metal and Hair Razors would be the favorites in Tell City's age-13-16 girls softball league this year, and they played like it in lopsided wins over previously undefeated teams Wednesday.

    Frederick Sheet Metal, despite the absence of star pitcher Josalyn Ress due to a volleyball camp, beat Sports Acceleration 12-2 as Allison Parker went 3 for 3.

    Sports Acceleration was also without its top pitcher, McKenzie Hayes.

    Sports Acceleration had only two hits, by Sammie James and Charissa Lahee.

  • Hauser, Kessens on academic all-...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central shortstop Austin Hauser and outfielder Ryan Kessens have been named to the Indiana Baseball Coaches Association's 2009 academic all-state team.

    To be considered for the team a player must be a senior, must start at least 70 percent of his team's games (or pitch 25 percent of its innings), and have an SAT score of at least 1600 or an ACT score of at least 24.

    All players who meet those criteria are ranked based on their test scores and class rank, with the top 50 making academic all-state.

  • Lassaline, Stiles win Glen Ress...

    TELL CITY—Erik Lassaline and John Stiles won the Glen Ress Memorial Open golf scramble Sunday with a 36-hole score of 124.

    Lassaline and Stiles are former star golfers for Tell City High School and also former Schweizer Fest tourney winners. Lassaline still lives in Tell City and Stiles lives in Santa Claus.

    They are also former winners of the Glen Ress Memorial Open, though they had never won it together.

    Lassaline won it in 2005 and 2000 when he teamed with Murray Minto. Stiles won it in 2006 when partnered with Bob Linne and in 1997 with Dan LaGrange.

  • All-PAC teams should be released...

    The Pocket Athletic Conference elected its girls softball all-conference team a week before its baseball all-conference team. But the softball team was released to the media a week after the baseball team.

    That doesn’t make sense.

    The softball team was selected June 1 but not released until two weeks later because some coaches requested it not be released until all conference teams were eliminated from the state tourney.

    Tecumseh won the Class A state title Saturday and Gibson Southern lost in the Class 3A state semifinals Friday.

  • Chinn, Goffinet to play in all-...

    NEW CASTLE—Tell City’s Andy Chinn and Lauren Goffinet will be among 96 of the state’s top basketball players playing in the first Class Basketball All-Star Classic Saturday.

    There will be four games—two for boys and two for girls.

    Goffinet will play in the first game at 11 a.m. Perry County time as stars from Class 2A and A teams in the Indianapolis metropolitan area face their counterparts from the rest of the state.

  • Perry Central splits two...

    LEOPOLD—Miranda Claise pitched a no-hitter and a two-hitter as Perry Central split junior high girls softball doubleheaders Saturday and Monday.

    Claise threw a no-hitter as the Commodores beat Paoli 4-2 in the second game of Saturday’s twinbill.

    She struck out three and walked one in that five-inning game.

    Perry Central had three hits—singles by Hannah Harpenau, Allison Parker and Kosha Wetzel. Parker and Wetzel each drove in two runs.

    Paoli won the opener 4-3 in six innings.

  • Sports Acceleration, Cash...

    TELL CITY—Pitching remained strong for Cash Waggner & Associates and Sports Acceleration as each improved to 3-0 with wins in Tell City’s age-13-16 girls softball league Monday.

    Taylor Benningfield and Kosha Wetzel combined to pitch a one-hitter as Cash Waggner beat Frederick Sheet Metal 5-2.

    Benningfield struck out six and walked four in four innings. Wetzel struck out none and walked none in a 1-2-3 inning.

    Payton Reed had Frederick’s only hit, an RBI single in the third inning.

  • All-PAC softball team released

    LINCOLN CITY—The Pocket Athletic Conference finally released its all-conference girls softball team Monday, two weeks after it was selected.

    As reported here previously, Tell City’s Lauren Goffinet was named to the 15-girl honor squad.

    Conference champion Gibson Southern and runner-up Tecumseh, which won the Class A state title, each had four girls named to the team. Third-place Heritage Hills had three girls make it.

  • Corydon overtakes Commodores

    CORYDON—Corydon scored four runs on just two hits in the fifth inning to beat Perry Central 6-4 in age-14 baseball Saturday.

    Two walks and an error also helped fuel that rally.

    “We had a couple of errors that let some guys score,” said Perry Central Coach Brian Cassidy.

    Adam Kleaving hit a home run and a single and drove in two runs to lead Perry Central’s seven-hit attack in the seven-inning game.

    His home run cleared the left-field fence near the 330-foot marking.

    Colten Hedinger added one hit and drew two walks.

  • Miners shut out TC in regional...

    BRETZVILLE—Stephanie Fougeroussse pitched a three-hitter and Jenica Ringo hit a two-run homer as Linton-Stockton beat Tell City 3-0 to win the Forest Park Class 2A girls softball regional June 6.

    Linton-Stockton improved to 20-5 with its 15th consecutive win. Tell City finished the season 17-9.

    The game was a scoreless tie the first three innings. Tell City got out of a two-on, one-out jam in the third inning when second baseman Paige Gelarden turned a nice tag-and-throw double play.
