  • Fall success could be just start...

    Different schools have different definitions for sports success, but most high schools with fewer than 400 students would consider a fall season successful when the worst record any of its teams had was 7-4.
    That was the case at Perry Central this fall, where the Commodores won Patoka Lake Athletic Conference titles in all four sports in which they competed.
    They also won sectionals in boys and girls cross country and a regional in boys cross country.

    LINTON—Last year Perry Central traveled to Linton-Stockton for a first-round Class A football sectional game with the Miners, who were undefeated and ranked No. 3 in the state.
    The picture has changed little this year. Perry Central will play the Miners, who are 10-0 and ranked No. 2 in the state, in a second-round game Friday at 7 p.m. And again the game is at Linton, the eighth consecutive time these two have met in the sectional that the game was there (they played at Perry Central only once, back in 1997).
