    FERDINAND - Forest Park scored an unearned run in the bottom of the eighth inning to beat Tell City 1-0 in PAC girls softball Tuesday.

    Tell City freshman Josalyn Ress and Forest Park senior Jenna Brinkman hooked up in a classic pitchers duel.

    Ress walked none, struck out 12, and gave up three hits. Brinkman also walked none, struck out five, and scattered nine hits.

    Neither team made an error until the bottom of the eighth inning.

    After Laura Hassfurther led off that inning with a double to right-center field, the Rangers tried to bunt her to third base.

    Huber also won the 110 high hurdles in 15.09 seconds.

  • Tell City hitters rock Cannelton

    TELL CITY - Evan Rothgerber went 4 for 4 and drove in four runs as Tell City beat Cannelton 14-1 in baseball Monday.

    Cody Pfeifer added three hits to Tell City's 16-hit attack and scored four runs.

    Kyle Osborne and Eric Henrickson each had two hits and two RBIs and Ryan Zuelly drove in three runs.

    Though the Marksmen averaged four hits per inning (they batted in only four innings before the game ended by the 10-run rule), in the first inning it looked as if it could be a close game.

  • Commodores sweep two from...

    LEOPOLD - Taking advantage of eight walks and nine Cannelton errors, Perry Central scored 15 runs on just four hits to win 15-4 in the first game of a girls softball doubleheader Saturday.

  • 12-run inning lifts Senators...

    CAMPBELLSBURG - Trailing 9-4, West Washington erupted for 12 runs in the fourth inning to beat Perry Central 16-12 in PLAC girls softball Wednesday.

    The Senators had only four hits that inning but also took advantage of a hit batsman and five Perry Central errors that inning - most of them on throws.

    "We just handed this one away," said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. "Our throwing mechanics have to get better.

    "We're young and we got rattled, and for whatever reason we couldn't turn off the scoring."

    Gibson noted the Commodores have improved on offense, though.

  • PC girls 4th at Southridge

    HUNTINGBURG - Alie Schroeder won the shot put to lead Perry Central to fourth place in the eight-team Southridge invitational girls track meet Thursday.

    Schroeder won the shot put with a 36-foot-3 throw and teammate Kylee James placed third at 32-61?2.

    The Commodores also took two of the top four places in the 3200-meter run. Lavina Schwartz was third in 13:01.0 and Audra Gehlhausen fourth in 13:01.56.

    Schwartz placed sixth in the 1600 in 6:02.5.

  • Jeeps beat Commodores

    Nick Huber won three events for Perry Central.

    He ran the 110-meter high hurdles in 14.91 seconds and the 300 intermediate hurdles in 39.15.

    He cleared 6 feet, 4 inches to win the high jump.

    He did not run the 1600 relay, as a calf muscle he strained earlier in the season "started hurting a little bit," said Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett.

  • Avallone, Kessinger lead Tell...

    MOUNT VERNON - Zach Avallone and Kyle Kessinger each won one event to lead Tell City to second place in the nine-team Mount Vernon boys track invitational Friday.

    Castle romped to victory with 164 points. Tell City scored 84.

    "In nearly every event Castle had someone phenomenal and we had someone equally as good," said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden. "But because of their numbers (Castle is the largest school in Southwestern Indiana with an enrollment more than three times that of Tell City) they had a second person in each event almost as good as their first one."

  • Titans, Hornets top Tell City

    TELL CITY - Gibson Southern pounded out 18 hits, including five doubles and a home run, to beat Tell City 10-1 in PAC girls softball Thursday.
