  • Buldogs top Rappites

    CANNELTON—Three-point shooting and solid defense helped Cannelton overcome New Harmony 61-56 in boys basketball Tuesday.

    The Bulldogs hit 10 for 31 from three-point range while New Harmony made only 5 of 13.

    “I think that was a big key for us, hitting those early three-point shots,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.

    Garrett also said he was pleased with his team’s man-to-man defense and attempt to dictate the tempo of the game.

  • TC third in sectional

    JASPER—Freshman Amanda Wagner placed second in one individual event and a relay to lead Tell City to third place in the 13-team Jasper girls swim sectional Saturday.

    The Marksmen scored 200 points, just three behind second-place Southridge. Their finish was their highest in 10 years, since they won the sectional at Tell City in 1999.

    Wagner set a personal record as she placed second in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:10.74.

    Bedford-North Lawrence senior Kayla Allen also beat her seed time to win that event in 1:09.99.

  • Three Tell City wrestlers...

    NEWBURGH—Tell City’s Dylan Froehlich, Andy Kast and A.J. Flynn qualified for the IHSAA wrestling semistate with their performances in the Castle regional Saturday.

    Flynn will probably not be able to compete, though, due to a knee injury suffered in the regional.

    Eight wrestlers competed in each weight class in the regional, with the top four qualifying for the semistate.

    Flynn pinned John Hoehn of Mount Vernon in 1:51 in the first round to qualify for the semistate.

  • Bulldogs outrebound Lions

    CANNELTON—Strong rebounding by the entire team carried Cannelton past Rock Creek Academy 55-39 in girls basketball Friday.

    “Defensive rebounds were definitely a plus for us,” said Cannelton Coach Jeff Miller.

    Freshman guard Payton Reed grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Bulldogs.

    Jaci Garrett and Sammie James each added seven rebounds, Brooke Powers six, and Nakaa Myers five.

    Freshman guard Sarah Powers led the Bulldogs with 14 points, including 8 of 14 field-goal shooting. She also made five steals.

  • Rangers’ offensive...

    FERDINAND—Forest Park took advantage of 24 offensive rebounds and 25 Tell City turnovers to beat the Marksmen 58-31 in PAC girls basketball Thursday.

    Forest Park outrebounded Tell City 48-25 overall.

    “We didn’t box out,” said Tell City Coach John Lyons. “We tried to rebound with them straight up, and we’re not going to win that battle.”

  • PC loses 2 close games

    HUNTINGBURG—Southridge scored on a power move in the final minute to beat Perry Central 38-37 in girls basketball Thursday.

    Hilarie Hahus hit two free throws with a minute left to put Perry Central ahead 37-36.

    After Southridge scored its go-ahead basket, Perry Central missed a shot.

    The Commodores fouled with 0:15 left and Southridge missed both free throws. But Perry Central missed another shot from the top of the key in the closing seconds.

  • Piper picks Panthers

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central senior Robbie Piper signed a national letter of intent Wednesday to play defensive tackle for Kentucky Wesleyan College’s football team.

    Piper was scouted by at least two Big Ten Conference teams and visited Iowa University.

    But he said he chose Wesleyan because “it’s close to home and they said they can use one or two defensive tackles to help them get to the (NCAA Division II) tourney.

    “They said if I come in and work hard, there should be no reason why I can’t start.”

  • Senators rip PC 58-31

    CAMPBELLSBURG—Perry Central hit only 19.1 percent from the field in a 58-31 PLAC boys basketball loss to West Washington Friday.

    “Obviously we had our worst shooting performance of the season—9 for 47,” said Perry Central Coach Matt Carter. “They were real active in their zone and our shot selection was pretty poor.

    “They got a hand on three or four of our three-point shots, which tells you we weren’t taking good shots.

    “Most of our shots were contested. We rushed a few and we didn’t use shot fakes.”

  • Aud reaches 1,000 but Eagles...

    CANNELTON—Tyler Aud set a Cannelton school record for most free throws made in a game but that wasn’t enough to offset the Bulldogs’ 32.2 percent field-goal shooting as they lost to Evansville Day 84-77 in boys basketball Tuesday.

    Aud made 22 of 24 free throws to break the record of 18 made in a game set by Bill Dickerson 35 years ago.

    After missing his second free throw, Aud made 20 in a row in a 20-minute span before missing one with 10 seconds left in the game.

  • Wolfpack’s offensive...

    LEOPOLD—Crawford County got a lot of offensive rebound baskets in defeating Perry Central 51-44 in boys PLAC basketball Tuesday.

    With 4:58 left in the fourth quarter, Perry Central’s Austin Hauser made a free throw tying the game at 36-36.

    On the Wolfpack’s next possession, Dustin Bowling missed a free throw.  Unfortunately for the Commodores, he got the rebound and scored three points on a basket and free throw.
