    The Commodores backed her with solid defense, committing only one error.

  • Gengelbach MVP as PC girls romp...

    MITCHELL—Lindsey Gengelbach won the meet’s MVP award as Perry Central romped to the PLAC girls track title Friday.

    The Commodores scored 153 points, 36 more than runner-up Mitchell, to win the seven-team meet.

    “That’s pretty well what I had us for (based on seeds),” said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet, who won her 24th conference title after missing out by just seven points last year.

    Gengelbach, a sophomore sprinter/jumper, scored a meet-high 34 points.

  • PC nips Paoli for title

    MITCHELL—Some surprisingly strong finishes in the distance races and the 200-meter dash propelled Perry Central past Paoli for the PLAC boys track title Friday.

    The Commodores won the seven-team meet for the fifth year in a row with 126.5 points, 2.5 more than Paoli.

    “It was a good meet all the way through,” said Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett.

    Jake Schwartz returned from an injury just a week earlier and Barnett didn’t know how good of shape he would be in for the conference meet.

  • Tell City 2nd in PAC

    TELL CITY—Tyler Dauby and David McDaniel each won one event to lead Tell City to second place in the nine-team PAC boys track meet Thursday.

    Forest Park won with 125 points. Tell City scored 101.

    Tell City star Ryan Henrickson injured a hip in the long jump (he finished fourth at 20 feet, 1 inch) and was unable to compete in his three running events.

    Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden said he thinks the injury is a hip flexor and he doesn’t know if Henrickson will be able to compete in this Thursday’s sectional.

  • TC shuts out Raiders

    HUNTINGBURG—Shane Weedman and Trent Gunn combined to pitch a three-hitter as Tell City shut out Southridge 4-0 in PAC baseball Thursday.

    Weedman struck out six and walked three before being relieved by Gunn in the seventh inning.

    Weedman “had great command of the strike zone,” said Tell City Coach Mark Wahl. “He worked hitters well and attacked the strike zone—a very well pitched game.”

    Two of his walks came in the seventh inning. “He got tired in the seventh when his pitch count hit 100,” said Wahl.

  • Boonville nips TC in 8

    TELL CITY—Boonville, ranked No. 1 in the state in Class 3A, had to go eight innings to beat Tell City 2-0 in girls softball Thursday.

    Mike Wilson, who has coached Boonville for 25 years, recently told the Evansville Courier & Press, that this is his best hitting team ever.

    But Tell City pitcher Josalyn Ress, using a lot of screwballs and two-seam fastballs, shut the Pioneers out for seven innings on two hits.

    The Pioneers led off the eighth with a double to the right-center-field fence and scored on a throwing error on a bunt.

  • Commodores fall to Mitchell

    LEOPOLD—Mitchell took advantage of seven Perry Central errors to beat the Commodores 12-6 in PLAC girls softball Thursday.

    Each team had seven hits, with Mitchell getting three triples.

    “They hit the ball real well,” said Perry Central Coach Mark Rothgerber.

    But he was not pleased that his team gave the Bluejackets extra at-bats due to the errors.

    Tara Claise drove in four runs for Perry Central with a bases-loaded double in the third inning and a single.

  • Wagner placed in top 5 in state...

    When Tell City’s Dylan Froehlich placed fifth in his weight class in the IHSAA state wrestling meet in February, I tried to run a list of all Perry County athletes who ever placed in the top five in an individual event in any IHSAA sport.

    Bob Busse, who coached Tell City’s boys track team 28 years (he also coached the girls team several years), called to mention that I had forgotten one top-five finisher, Mike Hagan, who placed fifth in the state in the shot put as a Tell City senior in 1984.
