  • Rebels overtake Commodores

    ELIZABETH—South Central scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat Perry Central 7-6 in girls softball Saturday.

    Perry Central took a 6-4 lead on Megan Lindauer’s three-run double in the fifth inning.

    The Rebels rallied for two runs in the sixth to tie the score, though. Amelia Foreman’s double then helped them win in the seventh.

    Each team had seven hits and Perry Central committed only one error.

  • Jeeps outrun Perry Central girls

    LEOPOLD—Jessica Huber won both hurdles races to lead Perry Central to second place in a three-team girls track meet Tuesday.

    Northeast Dubois won with 97 points. Perry Central scored 53 and Cannelton 10.

    Sammie James won both throwing events to account for all of Cannelton’s scoring. She threw the shot 28 feet, 5 inches and the discus 91 feet, 101⁄2 inches.

    The Bulldogs had just two girls competing. But four places were scored in each event, as in all triangular matches, which gave an advantage to Northeast Dubois with its superior depth.

  • Commodores beat 4 PLAC, 2 PAC...

    PAOLI-Mitchell edged Perry Central for first place in the PLAC girls track meet last spring, snapping the Commodores’ string of 14 consecutive conference titles. But a PLAC preview meet Thursday indicated the Commodores are ready to regain their crown.

    In a meeting of the top four teams in the conference Perry Central won with 114 points, 38 more than runner-up Mitchell.

    The Commodores won 12 of the 15 events.

    Amy Schwartz, Susan Schwartz, Lavina Schwartz and Cathryn Peter set a school record as they won the 3200-meter relay in 10:39.

  • Depth carries PC boys to win

    PAOLI—Perry Central used its depth to beat three PLAC opponents in boys track Thursday.

    Three of the Commo-dores’ top runners, Michael Ernst, Eric Scheiber and Jake Schwartz, were held out of the meet to rest for the Tell City invitational Saturday. And some ran fewer events than usual.

    Yet Perry Central still won with 98 points. Paoli scored 73, Mitchell 36, and Crawford County 21.

    Even without their top two 1600 runners, the Commodores took the top four places in that race.

    Noah Gatwood won it in 4:47. He also won the 3200 in 10:46.

  • Marksmen fall short to 2...

    TELL CITY—Hitting hasn’t been a problem for Tell City’s baseball team this year, but the pitching and defense haven’t come around as quickly as Coach Mark Wahl would like.

    The Marksmen built a 9-2 lead with an eight-run third inning Thursday but lost to Harrison 10-9.

    “If we do the simple things like throw strikes and catch the baseball, we beat a very good Class 4A team,” said Wahl.

  • PC outhits Wolfpack

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central amassed a season-high 12 hits to beat Crawford County 4-3 in eight innings in PLAC baseball Thursday.

    Despite more than doubling the Wolfpack’s total, Perry Central trailed 2-1 entering the bottom of the seventh inning.

    DeeJay Shaw hit a double that inning, though, to drive home Lucas Bryant with the tying run.

    Seth Raetz led off the bottom of the eighth inning for the Commodores with a double to right-center field.

  • Tell City beats Jeeps, Tigers

    DUBOIS—Hana Reed went 4 for 4 and Josalyn Ress struck out 13 as Tell City beat Northeast Dubois 6-4 in girls softball Thursday.

    Tell City’s eight hits were only one more than the Jeeps had. But the Marksmen were helped by six Jeep errors.

    The Marksmen scored three runs in the third inning on three errors and only one hit.

    The Jeeps committed at least one error in each of the three innings that Tell City scored.

    Reed scored two runs in the game. Katie Elder, making her first start in right field, drove in two runs.

  • PC knocks off Charlestown

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central outhit Charlestown 8-5 to beat the Pirates 4-2 in girls softball Friday.

    Hilarie Hahus went 3 for 4 and Brooke Litherland went 2 for 3 with a triple to lead the Commodores’ attack.

    Trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Commodores rallied for two runs to take the lead for good.

    Hahus singled, advanced to second base on a passed ball, and went to third on Morgan Gibson’s bunt single.

    Cassy Schaad singled home Hahus to tie the score.
