    Halee Lamb hit a triple and scored three runs in the win over Goffinet Homes.

    Crawford County and Perry Central each shot 365 on the tough Donald Ross course, but Crawford County earned fourth place based on the fifth-man tiebreaker. So the Commodores had to settle for fifth, matching their best finish ever.

    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.

  • Cannelton splits two games

    NEW HARMONY—Cannelton had 10 hits and drew 26 walks to beat Rock Creek 28-18 in the consolation game of New Harmony’s girls softball tourney Saturday.
    Sammie James, who was pitching her second game of the day for Cannelton, gave up 12 walks and struck out four as there were 38 total walks in the five-inning game, which lasted more than three hours.
    “Sammie was getting tired,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. And Rock Creek is a first-year team whose pitchers have struggled with control this season.
