  • Perry Central’s boys...

    JASPER—The Jasper invitational is generally regarded as a preview of the cross country  sectionals to be held on the same course two weeks later, so Tuesday’s invitational results bode well for Perry Central.

    The Commodores won the boys meet and their girls placed second to Heritage Hills.

    Individually, Tell City’s Sarah Goffinet, the defending champion in the girls sectional, looks ready to repeat as she won Tuesday in 20:54.33, 17.14 seconds ahead of runner-up Cecilia Oxford of Heritage Hills.

  • PC holds off Mitchell

    LEOPOLD—A balanced spiking attack helped Perry Central beat Mitchell 25-17, 19-25, 27-25, 25-20 in PLAC volleyball Tuesday.

    Early in the season the Commodores relied mainly on two players for kills. But Tuesday Jessica Huber made 11, Megan Hedinger and Olivia Schroeder each added seven, Ashley Gengelbach made five, and Victoria Lutgring contributed four.

    Tessa Lynch aided the hitters with a season-high 20 assists and Sloan Harpenau added seven.

  • Mitchell’s option runs...

    LEOPOLD—Containing Mitchell’s option plays will be Perry Central’s main concern in Friday’s 7 p.m. PLAC football game.

    “Their running game has been the best thing for them,” said Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer of the 3-3 Bluejackets. “They’ll run some sweeps and they’ll run off tackle some, but one of their most productive things has been the option.”

  • Tell City to host Vikings

    TELL CITY—Confidence might be the main thing Tell City needs to compete with North Posey in the Marksmen’s football homecoming game Friday at 7:30 p.m.

    North Posey is 3-3 but has been so up and down this season “it’s hard to get a reading on them,” said Tell City defensive coordinator Ronnie Robinson. “We’re going to have to watch a lot of film on them this week.”

  • PC boys 4th at Bedford

  • Tecumseh overpowers Bulldogs

    LYNNVILLE—Cannelton could not stop Tecumseh’s spiking and lost to the Braves 25-5, 25-13, 25-5 in volleyball Tuesday.

    “They’re a lot bigger than we are,” said Cannelton Coach Heather Garrison. “One of their girls is a real big hitter and we had a hard time blocking her.”

    Powers and Allicyn Garrett each made two kills. Nakaa Myers aided the hitters with 27 sets.
