  • Shorthanded Springs Valley to...

    LEOPOLD - Several coaches thought this year's Springs Valley's football team would be better than last year's. But injuries have hit the Blackhawks hard and they will bring an 0-7 record to Perry Central for Friday's 7 p.m. PLAC game.

    The Blackhawks lost four two-way starters to injuries early in the season. Two tore anterior cruciate ligaments, which means they are done for the season.

  • PC junior high boys win state

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central placed four boys in the top 26 as it won the 27-team small school boys middle school state cross country meet Saturday.

    Alex Newton was 13th in 10:34.1, Nathan Schwartz 26th in 10:46.9, and Andrew Huber 55th in 11:12.7 to complete the Commodores' scoring.

    "Nathan Schwartz really stepped it up for us a lot," said Perry Central Coach Jane Goffinet. "That was his best time by about 31 seconds."

  • Tell City splits 2 matches

    TELL CITY - Poor passing hurt Tell City in a 25-17, 25-18, 25-23 volleyball loss to Jasper Tuesday.

    Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes said the Marksmen made good serve receptions only 30 percent of the time (21 of 70).

    "Our passing killed us tonight," she said. "When we got a good pass, we usually got a good kill."

    Elizabeth Kohnert led the Marksmen in kills with 10. Lauren Goffinet and Brittney Harth each added five.

    But Goffinet attempted only 11 spikes and Harth 10.

  • Marksman boys 2nd; girls 3rd in...

    HUNTINGBURG - Competing without their top runner Tell City boys placed second in the PAC cross country meet Saturday.

    Alex Fenn had been the individual conference champion the last two years but did not finish Saturday's race due to a recurring illness.

    "He started quite well - he was with Cody Stein (of Heritage Hills), the leader for about two miles," said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden.

    "But then we could tell that he wasn't all right. He started to fall back and we pulled him out of the race with about 200 (meters) to go."

  • Perry Central boys, girls PLAC...

    PAOLI - Perry Central had the top four finishers and six of the top 12 as it won the PLAC boys cross country meet Thursday for the third year in a row.

    Perry Central junior Jake Schwartz won the boys race in 17:48, two seconds ahead of teammate Ian Bashor.

    Michael Ernst placed third in 17:51 and Eric Scheiber fourth in 18:00.

  • PC's running game, defense...

    Andy Kast and Greg Hollinden beat Landon Rickelman and Kyle Kaufman 6-4, 6-4 in No. 1 doubles.

  • Wolfpack defeats Cannelton

    CANNELTON - Cannelton improved its serving and offense but lost to Crawford County 25-21, 25-16, 25-12 Thursday.

    "We played very well," said Cannelton Coach Heather Daum. "We have been working more on conditioning and on our offense, whereas before in season we have concentrated on defense.

    "We were able to run several plays with a lot of back-row attacks. And we missed fewer serves than in other games."

    Jaci Garrett made eight spikes, including two kills, for Cannelton.

  • Wildcats outspike Perry Central

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central was unable to block Jasper's spikes and lost to the Wildcats 25-13, 25-14, 25-13 in volleyball Thursday.

    Megan Hedinger had the Commodores' only block against the Wildcats, who are ranked 10th in the state in the Class 3A coaches poll.

    Jessica Huber made seven kills and Hedinger added six for Perry Central.

    Tessa Lynch had eight assists and Sloan Harpenau had six.

    Harpenau served two aces. She and Hilarie Hahus each made six digs.

    Jasper won the junior varsity match 25-9, 25-14.

  • Mater Dei defense stops TC

    EVANSVILLE - Mater Dei did a good job receiving Tell City's serves and spikes and beat the Marksmen 25-17, 25-18, 25-13 in volleyball Thursday.

    "We were competitive all night - there were some long volleys," said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. "We can play with them.

    "Their (back-row) defense is probably a lot better than our defense is right now. We're just getting to where we need to be.

    "But we blocked them more than they blocked us. And they're probably the best team we've played."
