  • Titans nip Tell City

    FORT BRANCH—Gibson Southern scored two runs without a hit in the fourth inning and edged Tell City 3-2 in PAC girls softball Thursday.

    They tried another squeeze bunt later in the game. But Tell City pitcher Josalyn Ress fielded it with her bare hand instead of her glove and was able to cut down the runner at the plate.
