  • Forest Park edges Marksmen

    TELL CITY - Forest Park held off Tell City 27-25, 26-24, 25-22 in PAC volleyball Tuesday but "we did a lot of nice things tonight," said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

    "I thought we played a lot better than we did this weekend," she added. "Our passing was really good and our hitting and blocking were good."

    Elizabeth Kohnert led the Marksmen with 10 kills and seven blocks.

    Lauren Goffinet added nine kills and Julie Davis had 17 assists.

    Goffinet made 12 digs and Paige Gelarden added 10.

    Tell City went 1-3 in a tourney at Corydon Saturday.

  • PC goes 1-3 in Evansville tourney

    EVANSVILLE - Jessica Huber made seven kills, six digs and three blocks as Perry Central beat Bosse 26-24, 28-26 in the Evansville Invitational volleyball tourney.

    Perry Central went 1-3 in the tourney. But the win over the Bulldogs ended a 12-match losing streak for the Commodores.

    Hilarie Hahus served three aces and made six digs. Harpenau also made six digs.

  • Sagarin favors PC over TC by 24...

    Though Friday's second varsity football meeting between Tell City and Perry Central isn't being as highly anticipated as the first one, it should still produce a standing-room-only crowd at the Commodores' field.

    Neither team has as much experience or speed at the skill positions as last year.

    But Perry Central does have a senior, returning starter at quarterback while Tell City is starting a sophomore there.

    And Perry Central has a huge edge in size and experience on the offensive and defensive lines, led by 6-foot-4, 400-pound senior all-state tackle Robbie Piper.

  • PC wins under 1,000 races

    NASHVILLE - Perry Central placed three runners in the top 10 to win Brown County's Eagle Classic boys cross country race for schools with under 1,000 enrollment Saturday.

    The Commodores also won the girls race, with all five of their scorers placing in the top 32.

    Jake Schwartz placed fourth in the boys race in 17:23.45 and Rachael Rayford fourth in the girls race in 20:49 to lead the Commodore teams.

    Tell City finished third in the girls race and fifth in the boys race.

  • PC boys, Tell City girls win

    TELL CITY - Jake Schwartz was the individual winner and Perry Central placed all five of its scorers in the top nine to win the Lincoln Trail Invitational boys cross country meet Tuesday.

    Sarah Goffinet won the girls race to lead Tell City to that title, giving the Perry County schools sweeps of the top spots.

    Perry Central placed second in the girls race and Tell City was fifth in the boys race.

  • Tell City falls twice

    ROCKPORT - Tell City won the top two singles matches but South Spencer won the rest to nip the Marksmen 3-2 in PAC boys tennis Wednesday.

    Andy Chinn beat Matthew Belcher 6-0, 6-4 in No. 1 singles and Jake Roland beat Michael Chamness 6-3, 6-2 in No. 2 for the Marksmen's victories.

    All but one set of the other three matches were close.

    South Spencer's Kyle Mason edged Chris Kohnert 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) in No. 3 singles.

    The first set of No. 1 doubles also went to a tie-breaker and it took the Rebels three sets to win in No. 2 doubles.

  • Improved passing, blocking help...

    TELL CITY - Tell City volleyball coach Dalonda Hayes said better passing and defense helped the Marksmen beat Perry Central 25-17, 25-11, 29-27 Thursday.

    "I think our passing was a key tonight," said Hayes. "When we can get the ball to our setter without having to run her everywhere, Julie (Davis)'s going to get the ball to our hitters.

    "And our defense was better. Our (back-row) coverage was better and we had more blocks tonight - we hadn't been blocking very well (in recent matches)."

    Lauren Goffinet made six blocks and Elizabeth Kohnert added four for the Marksmen.

  • Chargers beat Tell City

    TELL CITY - Pike Central rushed for 293 and defeated Tell City 26-7 Friday in Pocket Athletic Conference football.

    The Chargers' Travis Frazier was faster than any Tell City player and used his superior speed to rush 16 times for 189 yards and two touchdowns.

    He ripped off runs of 30, 49, and 39 yards, getting outside each time.

    Tell City's lone score came from Kyle Osborne on a 1-yard run in the third quarter.

    Osborne carried the ball 23 times for 72 yards to lead the Marksmen.

  • Commodores stop Senators

    CAMPBELLSBURG - Perry Central's bend-but-don't-break defense stopped two West Washington drives inside the 20-yard line in the second half to beat the Senators 14-6 in PLAC football Friday.

    The Commodores won despite playing most of the game without T.J. Hall, who entered the game as the leading rusher in southwestern Indiana.

    Hall suffered an ankle injury with 10:14 left in the second quarter after carrying the ball 11 times for 42 yards.

    He may return to action against Tell City this week.

  • Senators to try to stop PC'...

    CAMPBELLSBURG - Perry Central has rushed for over 300 yards in every football game this season, so Coach Mike Spencer expects West Washington to concentrate on stopping the Commodores' running game when they meet Friday at 7 p.m.

    The 2-1 Senators usually play a 4-4 defense. But "against us (in recent years) they've played a 5-3 and even a six- or seven-man line trying to stop the run," said Spencer Monday. "So we think they're going to bring a lot of people."
