  • 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.

    Megan Hedinger made seven blocks, Jessica Huber four, Ashley Gengelbach and Tessa Lynch three apiece, and Victoria Lutgring two.

    Hedinger also made 10 kills and Huber added nine.  Olivia Schroeder went 10 for 10 spiking with three kills.

    Sloan Harpenau had nine assists and Lynch added eight.

    Jennifer Kemp led the Commodores in digs with 13. Huber added eight and Lynch and Hilarie Hahus each made six.

  • 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.

  • Perry Central teams, Goffinet...

    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.

    But Tell City sophomore Sarah Goffinet placed second in the girls race in 20:50.7 to qualify as an individual. The top 15 individuals in each race advanced, regardless of whether their team did.

  • PC boys win fourth consecutive...

    JASPER—The Jasper cross country sectional Tuesday looked like a rerun.

    Perry Central won the boys team title for the fourth year in a row and placed second to Heritage Hills in the girls race for the third year in a row.

    Tell City’s Sarah Goffinet repeated as individual champion in the girls race and Josh Genet of Northeast Dubois repeated as boys champion.

    And both Tell City teams again qualified for the regional, as the Marksmen placed fourth in both races. The top five teams advance.

  • Perry County teams get favorable...

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City and Perry Central received about as favorable pairings as they could ask for when the IHSAA made its football sectional drawings Tuesday.

    In Sectional 32, a Class 2A one, Tell City will host winless Crawford County for a first-round game at 7 p.m. Oct. 23.

    Perry Central will visit Springs Valley for a first-round game 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23 in Sectional 40, a Class A one.

    Springs Valley has beaten only Crawford County this year and lost a regular-season game to Perry Central 47-7 Saturday.
