    The Commodores rushed for 421 yards as they defeated Tell City 42-0.

    Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer said his offensive line's "timing is pretty good right now. The big thing we're trying to work on right now is the push after contact so those holes don't suddenly get smaller."

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
