  • 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.

    Cannelton cut its errors to two in the second game but Perry Central had nine hits and also won that game 11-1.

    The Commodores took control of the first game with nine runs in the second inning on two hits, five walks, three errors, a hit batsman and a wild pitch.

  • 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.

    Southridge won with 167 1/2 points. Perry Central scored 60.

    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

    LEOPOLD - Sectional favorite Northeast Dubois won 10 of 16 events to beat Perry Central 95-69 in boys track Thursday.

    Cannelton also competed and scored three points on T.J. James' 115-foot-2 second-place discus throw.

    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.

    The Titans scored in six of the seven innings as they hit the ball hard throughout their lineup.

    "They hit the ball hard and they hit it where we weren't," said Tell City Coach Dusty Beard.

    Christin Overton went 4 for 5 with five RBIs and Felicia Virden, their No. 8 hitter, drove in three runs with a single and a homer over the left-field fence.

  • Benham, Wolfpack slug Bulldogs

    CANNELTON - Bo Benham hit for the cycle as Crawford County beat Cannelton 11-0 in baseball Wednesday.

    The Wolfpack's Richard Edwards pitched a one-hitter, striking out 10 and walking two.

    Justin Dooley led off the bottom of the fifth inning for Cannelton with a double.

    But a strikeout, a ground out and a strikeout followed, stranding him at second and ending the game by the 10-run rule.

    Ethan Herzog pitched the first three innings for Cannelton to take the loss and Tyler Aud pitched the last two innings. They each struck out two and walked none.

  • Eagles, Trojans defeat PC

    LEOPOLD - Lanesville scored 10 runs in the fourth inning to beat Perry Central 15-8 in baseball Wednesday.

    The Eagles had seven hits, drew four walks and took advantage of one Perry Central error (the Commo-dores' only error of the game) in that big inning.

    The last seven runs of the inning were unearned because of the error.

    The Eagles outhit Perry Central 18-11 for the game, getting four doubles. "They were aggressive at the plate," said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.

  • McClintic plays good floor game...

    EVANSVILLE - Her shooting was rusty but the other parts of Kara McClintic's game were strong in the Hoosier Basketball Coaches Association's girls all-star game Sunday.

    The Tell City senior started at point guard for the West team and had six assists, five rebounds, two steals and one blocked shot in 27 minutes of action.

    Her first assist was probably her best, a nice thread-the-needle pass to Northeast Dubois star Allie Matheis for a wide open layup.

    McClintic had two assists in the last 50 seconds of the first half to help the West build a 45-38 halftime lead.

  • Perry Central outshoots Tell...

    Graves birdied the par-4 No. 4 hole.

    Besides Graves, Perry Central scorers were Charles Weatherholt with a 44, Zach Rogier 46, and Travis Goffinet 47.

    Anthony Rennie, who shot a 48, and Logan Shearn, 52, also played for the Commodores.
