    Sports Editor

    PAOLI—Using a variety of weapons, Paoli amassed 414 total yards in a 30-6 PLAC football victory over Perry Central Friday.
    The Rams rushed for 255 yards on 45 carries and completed 9 of 16 passes for 159 yards.
    Quarterback Lee Wro-blewski, who had been sidelined two weeks with an injury, did most of the passing. But he also caught a 38-yard pass from Garrett Strange—and looked healthy doing it—late in the first half to set up a field goal by Strange.

  • Marksmen tie for second in...

    LINCOLN CITY—Tell City won No. 1 singles and No. 2 doubles titles to tie for second in Heritage Hills’ four-team boys tennis tourney Saturday.
    Anjan Kashyab took the No. 1 singles title. He avenged a loss from three days earlier as he beat Gibson Southern’s Cody Mann 2-6, 6-3, 10-7 (a super tiebreaker was used instead of a third set) in the first round.
    Kashyab then beat Dugan Kippenbrock of Heritage Hills 6-1, 6-2 for the title.

  • Jasper’s invitational meet...

    JASPER—Jasper’s cross country invitational is always a good sectional preview, as it is run on the same course as the sectional will be two weeks later and nearly all the sectional teams compete in it.
    It also gives first-year varsity runners a chance to get familiar with the sectional course before the sectional.
    If they get that chance this year, though, it will have to be in practice, as the invitational was canceled Tuesday.
    Jasper officials notified teams at 10 a.m. that the races would not be run.

  • North Posey defeats Marksmen

    TELL CITY—Two of Tell City’s three seniors scored goals on senior night, but it wasn’t enough as the Marksmen lost to North Posey 7-2 in PAC boys soccer Tuesday.
    Matthew Cole and Hunter Sandage scored the Marksmen’s goals.
    Tell City scored the first goal just five minutes into the game and trailed only 3-2 at halftime.
    “The second half was a much more physical game and we started to wear down,” said Tell City Coach Austin Fischer.
    The Marksmen finished the regular season 1-10-2 overall and 1-5 in the PAC.

  • Tecumseh outspikes Cannelton

    CANNELTON—Tecumseh used more bump, set, spikes to beat Cannelton 25-11, 25-13, 25-10 in volleyball Tuesday.
    “I have no doubt in my mind that we can play with them,” Cannelton Coach Felicia Myers said of the Bulldogs’ possible sectional opponent. “But we didn’t set the ball up again and they did every time.
    “When we did set it up, we had kills.”
    Allicyn Garrett made three kills to lead the Bulldogs. Mikah Hemmings and Brook Blankenship each made three blocks.
    Taylor Lawalin made 13 sets, but the Bulldogs’ setting game was hurt by the absence of their other setter, Jackie Malone.
