    DUBOIS - Tell City placed six boys in the top 20 as it finished second among 11 complete teams in a cross country invitational Tuesday.

    Tell City placed three runners in the top 12 in the girls race to finish fourth among nine teams.

    Alex Fenn led the Marksmen in the boys race, placing ninth in 17:35.

    Nick Bower was 12th in 17:50, Jordan Alvey 14th in 17:52, Devin McDaniel 17th in 17:59, and Darian Allen 18th in 18:00 to complete the Marksmen's scoring.

  • PC, TC draw home games

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central and Tell City drew first-round home games in the IHSAA football sectional drawings Tuesday.

    The Commodores will host 1-6 Wood Memorial in a Class A first-round game 7 p.m. Oct. 24.

    They will also likely have a second-round game at home against 5-2 North Daviess, which is heavily favored to beat 0-7 Springs Valley in their first-round matchup.

    If the Commodores survive that game, they would have to go on the road for the championship game.

  • Tell City will try to stop...

    TELL CITY - Gibson Southern's double-threat quarterback will test Tell City's defense when the two meet in PAC football Friday at 7 p.m.

    Cory Michel, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior, quarterbacks the 3-4 Titans. He is ninth in southwestern Indiana in passing yardage with 708 yards. He has completed 66 of 131 passes for 50.4 percent.

    But in last week's 63-20 win over Pike Central he scored five touchdowns on runs of 42, 41, 1, 72 and 52 yards.

    Excelling in both areas is not new for Michel, as he passed for over 1,000 yards last year and also ran for over 1,000 yards.

  • Shorthanded Springs Valley to...

    LEOPOLD - Several coaches thought this year's Springs Valley's football team would be better than last year's. But injuries have hit the Blackhawks hard and they will bring an 0-7 record to Perry Central for Friday's 7 p.m. PLAC game.

    The Blackhawks lost four two-way starters to injuries early in the season. Two tore anterior cruciate ligaments, which means they are done for the season.

  • PC junior high boys win state

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central placed four boys in the top 26 as it won the 27-team small school boys middle school state cross country meet Saturday.

    Paul Schwartz placed sixth in 10:20.6 and Abe Schwartz seventh in 10:21.8 on the 1.8-mile course.

    Alex Newton was 13th in 10:34.1, Nathan Schwartz 26th in 10:46.9, and Andrew Huber 55th in 11:12.7 to complete the Commodores' scoring.

    "Nathan Schwartz really stepped it up for us a lot," said Perry Central Coach Jane Goffinet. "That was his best time by about 31 seconds."

  • Tell City splits 2 matches

    TELL CITY - Poor passing hurt Tell City in a 25-17, 25-18, 25-23 volleyball loss to Jasper Tuesday.

    Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes said the Marksmen made good serve receptions only 30 percent of the time (21 of 70).

    "Our passing killed us tonight," she said. "When we got a good pass, we usually got a good kill."

    Elizabeth Kohnert led the Marksmen in kills with 10. Lauren Goffinet and Brittney Harth each added five.

    But Goffinet attempted only 11 spikes and Harth 10.

  • Marksman boys 2nd; girls 3rd in...

    HUNTINGBURG - Competing without their top runner Tell City boys placed second in the PAC cross country meet Saturday.

    Alex Fenn had been the individual conference champion the last two years but did not finish Saturday's race due to a recurring illness.

    "He started quite well - he was with Cody Stein (of Heritage Hills), the leader for about two miles," said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden.

    "But then we could tell that he wasn't all right. He started to fall back and we pulled him out of the race with about 200 (meters) to go."

  • Perry Central boys, girls PLAC...

    PAOLI - Perry Central had the top four finishers and six of the top 12 as it won the PLAC boys cross country meet Thursday for the third year in a row.

    The Commodores also won their first official PLAC girls cross country title despite running without the two-time defending individual champion.

    Perry Central junior Jake Schwartz won the boys race in 17:48, two seconds ahead of teammate Ian Bashor.

    Michael Ernst placed third in 17:51 and Eric Scheiber fourth in 18:00.

  • PC's running game, defense...

    MITCHELL - Perry Central rushed for 396 yards and six touchdowns as it overwhelmed Mitchell 44-0 in PLAC football Friday.

    T.J. Hall, the second leading rusher in southwestern Indiana, was again the Commodores' leader. He gained 209 yards on just 16 carries and scored four touchdowns.

    He also kicked five extra points and a 27-yard field goal to give him 32 points for the night.

    Mikey Wilkerson added 79 yards rushing and one touchdown.
