  • PC wins 2 PLAC baseball games

    LEOPOLD - Wes Linette pitched a one-hitter as Perry Central shut out Springs Valley 10-0 in PLAC baseball Tuesday.

    Linette struck out nine and walked four, and his teammates backed him with errorless defense.

    The Blackhawks' only hit was a single with two out in the third inning.

    Perry Central had five hits in a six-run second inning and also took advantage of two wild pitches that inning.

    Michael Jarboe hit two doubles in four at-bats to lead Perry Central's eight-hit attack for the game.

  • Davis 4th in 3200 in track...

    EVANSVILLE - Tell City junior Tiffany Davis placed fourth in the 3200-meter run to lead Perry County athletes in the IHSAA girls track regional Tuesday.

    Tell City also scored three sixth places to score 14 points. The Marksmen finished 15th among 26 teams that scored.

    Castle won the team title with 73.5 points.

    Davis ran the 3200 in 12:13.96, her best this year.

    She just missed qualifying for the state meet. The top eight finishers in each event scored but only the top three qualified for state.

  • Tecumseh overpowers Cannelton

    DUBOIS - Amber Walton drove in seven runs in the first two innings as Tecumseh beat Cannelton 30-0 in the first round of the Class A girls softball sectional Monday.

    Walton hit an RBI single and a grand slam, her fourth homer of the season, over the left-field fence in the first inning as the Braves jumped to a 10-0 lead.

    She drew two bases-loaded walks in their 13-run second inning.

  • Bittner, Mater Dei's...

    BRETZVILLE - Stephanie Bittner threw a two-hitter as Mater Dei beat Perry Central 11-0 in the Class 2A girls softball sectional semifinals Tuesday.

    The Commodores hit only one ball out of the infield in the five-inning game. They had nine ground outs, five strikeouts, and one runner caught stealing.

    "We didn't put the ball in play very much," said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson.

    He called Bittner's pitches "sneaky fast. She had good movement on them and she ran them in on us a little bit. And she hit her spots very well."

  • Vikings shut out Tell City

    BRETZVILLE - North Posey had 13 hits, including five for extra bases, as it beat Tell City 13-0 in the first round of the Class 2A girls softball sectional Monday and Tuesday.

    Tell City had only three hits, all singles, and never got a runner past second base. North Posey pitcher Jordan Redman walked no one and the Vikings committed only one error.

    Tell City's Lauren Goffinet led off the bottom of the first inning with a single to left field and was sacrificed to second base by Kyli Smithson.

    But a fly ball and a ground out ended the inning.

  • PC falls to Rangers

    FERDINAND - Forest Park broke up Perry Central's shutout bid with three runs in the fifth inning and beat the Commodores 6-1 in baseball Friday.

    Perry Central pitcher Wes Linette cruised through the first four innings. But in the fifth the Rangers first three batters singled.

    A bases-loaded walk to the Rangers' cleanup hitter then tied the score 1-1.

    The next batter singled in two runs to put the Rangers ahead for good.

    The Rangers outhit Perry Central 9-6 for the game.

    Lucas Bryant went 2 for 3 with an RBI to lead Perry Central hitters.

  • PC holds off Springs Valley

    FRENCH LICK - Perry Central played "the best defense we've played all year" in a 7-6 PLAC girls softball win over Springs Valley Wednesday, said Coach Greg Gibson.

    The Commodores committed only one error and made several nice catches.

    Morgan Gibson and Hilarie Hahus each had two of Perry Central's seven hits.

    Hahus drove in two runs and Cassy Schaad and April Ransom each scored two.

    Abby Preher pitched a complete game for the win, walking five and striking out three.

  • Marian signs Gehlhausen

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central senior Audra Gehlhausen has signed a national letter of intent to run track and cross country for Marian College.

    Gehlhausen, who was also recruited by Manchester, said she chose the Indianapolis school because "I liked their coaches better and I liked the girls on the team."

    Dave Roberts, Marian's track and cross country coach, said, "I think she has a real good chance to run in our top five (in cross country) as a freshman."

  • Ress pitches, hits TC past Jeeps...

    DUBOIS - Josalyn Ress pitched a two-hitter as Tell City shut out Northeast Dubois 5-0 in girls softball Friday.

    Ress struck out six and walked none, and her teammates backed her with errorless defense.

    She also went 3 for 3 with a double to lead Tell City's nine-hit attack.

    Tell City batters struck out four times - their fourth consecutive game with four or fewer strikeouts.

    "We do put the ball in play - that's one of our strengths," said Tell City Coach Dusty Beard.

  • Marksmen should like their draw...

    Drawing the first-round bye in next week's Class 2A South Spencer baseball sectional should make Tell City's team happy.

    But perhaps an even bigger plus for the Marksmen was they did not draw one of their three fellow PAC teams in the sectional.

    Going into Friday's game at Floyd Central, the Marksmen were 1-6 against PAC opponents (counting a second loss to South Spencer, which did not count in conference standings) and 9-1 against teams outside the PAC.
