  • Rebels shut out Perry Central

    ROCKPORT—South Spencer scored seven runs in the first inning en route to a 12-2 baseball victory over Perry Central Saturday.

    Perry Central took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on three singles and Clint Schank’s sacrifice fly.

    South Spencer took control in the bottom of the inning, though.

    Four walks, a double and an error led to six runs for the Rebels and chased Commo-dore starter Tony Backer before he recorded an out.

  • TC golf team expects to improve...

    TELL CITY—With four of the five players from last year’s conference roster returning, Tell City’s boys golf team expects to improve on last year’s 15-37 record.

    The Marksmen graduated leading scorer Ian Reed. And with only seven boys on their roster this year, they don’t have a lot of depth.

    But they return their second through fourth scorers and their fifth man from last year’s PAC tourney.

  • Goffinet powers Tell City to win

    HUNTINGBURG—Lauren Goffinet had three hits and drove in four runs as Tell City beat Southridge 6-3 in PAC girls softball Tuesday.

    Goffinet hit an RBI single in the first inning, a two-run triple down the left-field line in the second inning, and a solo home run over the right-field fence in the seventh.

    Josalyn Ress pitched a four-hitter for the win. She gave up three walks and struck out two.

    The game was the season opener for the Marksmen.

    They will visit North Posey for another Pocket Athletic Conference game Friday at 5:30 p.m.

  • Raiders outrun Tell City girls

    TELL CITY—Southridge won nine of 15 events to beat Tell City 73-50 in girls track Tuesday.

    The Raiders swept all three places in three events.

    A highlight for Tell City was its sweeping the three places in the 1600-meter run. Sarah Goffinet won it in 5:50.7, Tiffany Davis was second in 5:50.9, and Andyn Rowe was third in 6:20.

    Goffinet also won the 3200 in 13:14 and Rowe placed second in 13:32.

    Those two teamed with Brittany Waninger and Davis to win the 3200 relay in 11:05.

  • PC boys edge Tell City

    LEOPOLD—Robbie Piper, Dane Ransom, Eric Scheiber and Samson Benjamin each won one event as Perry Central edged Tell City 37-36 in a storm-shortened, season-opening boys track meet Thursday.

    Tell City won five of the nine events completed, including two by Jamal Noland.

    But Perry Central scored second places in five of the seven individual events.

    Perry Central won both throws, with Piper taking the shot put at 50 feet, 111⁄2 inches and Ransom the discus at 124 feet, 1 inch.

  • Kohnert wins twice as TC girls...

    LEOPOLD—Elizabeth Kohnert won two of the nine events completed to lead Tell City past Perry Central 38-35 in a storm-shortened girls track meet Thursday.

    Kohnert cleared 5 feet in the high jump to win it by two inches over Perry Central freshman Lindsey Gengel-bach.

    Kohnert also won the 400-meter dash in 1:05.90.

    “She ran the best 400 she has for a long time—I’m not sure she ran it that fast last season at any meet,” said Tell City Coach Katie Chinn. “She has worked hard over the winter.”

  • TC thinks pitching, hitting are...

    TELL CITY—Tell City girls softball coach Dusty Beard thinks hitting and pitching could be his team’s main strengths this season.

    Lauren Goffinet led the team last year with a batting average “around .340,” said Beard. And several starters batted under .200.

    But this year in practice “we’re hitting the ball real against live pitching,” said Beard. “We’ve had more days outside than we did last year.

    “Last year we were only outside one day before our first game.”

  • PC golfers look to build on last...

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s boys golf team sneaked up on several opponents late last season and placed third in the 14-team Jasper sectional to qualify for the regional for the first time.

    Opponents may be watching out for the Commodores more this season. But with three lettermen returning, the Commodores are hoping to build on that finish this year.

    Zach Graves, a fourth-year starter, returns as the team’s No. 1 golfer. He tied for seventh in the PLAC last year to make all-conference.

  • Sanders no-hits Commodores

    LYNNVILLE—Audra Sanders threw a no-hitter as Tecumseh beat Perry Central 10-0 in girls softball Friday.

    Sanders, who led Tecumseh to a Class A state runner-up finish last year and has earned a softball scholarship from Ball State University, struck out 14 batters in the five-inning game.

    “Her out pitch is a rise ball,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. “We swung at a ton of pitches that were basically neck high but looked like they were coming in right down the middle (of the strike zone) until they started rising.

  • PC's coach expects another...

    LEOPOLD—Even without graduated star Nick Huber, Coach Jason Barnett expects Perry Central to have another strong boys track team.

    Huber, who set school records in five events and placed third in the state in the 300-meter hurdles last year, is now running for Cornell University.

    But the Commodores have more depth this year. “We have 33 boys on the team—that’s the best we’ve had since I’ve been here,” said Barnett.
