    TELL CITY — Though Tell City did not win a PAC girls softball game this season, senior shortstop Hana Reed’s individual efforts have been rewarded with a spot on the all-conference team.

    The team was selected by conference coaches May 20 but not released until this week because some coaches asked that it not be released until after their sectionals were over.

    HUNTINGBURG—A baseball cliche is that the ball has eyes sometimes. That seemed to be the case as Forest Park scored three runs in the fourth inning without a hard hit to beat Tell City 5-2 in the first round of the Class 2A sectional Wednesday.
    The Rangers led 2-1 when Jared Wilgus led off the bottom of the fourth with a nubber between the pitcher and shortstop that fell in for a hit.

    Simpson, usually the Patriots’ closer, pitched the first six innings for the win. He struck out nine and walked two.
    “He was throwing in the high 80s (mph) and had a good curveball that broke late,” said Perry Central Coach Phil Zellers.

    TELL CITY—Spenser Beard hit two triples and a single as Tell City beat Northeast Dubois 5-1 in baseball Monday.
    Beard drove in two runs.
    “We had good production out of Beard in the leadoff spot again, we were able to use the bunt to move runners, and we were able to push across runs in some tough hitting counts,” said Tell City Coach Mark Wahl.
    Dayne Seibert pitched the first 51⁄3 innings for the win. He gave up one run and walked two.
