  • Rebels hold off Cannelton

    ROCKPORT - Cannelton didn't score a run or even get a hit Tuesday. But the Bulldogs' 4-0 baseball loss to defending Class 2A state champion South Spencer would still have to be considered a moral victory.

    The Bulldogs' game with South Spencer was rained out last year, but the previous two years they lost 49-0 and 41-1 to the Rebels.

    Tuesday's game was close because the Bulldogs improved their defense and got strong pitching from Stephen Lane and Tyler Aud.

    Lane pitched the first five innings, giving up six hits, three walks and only one earned run. He struck out three.

  • Marksmen searching for...

    TELL CITY - With three of their top five scorers from last year returning, Tell City's boys golf team hopes to improve on last year's 9-42 record.

    Senior Ian Reed is the Marksmen's No. 1 golfer after leading them in most meets last year, including the PAC tourney and the sectional.

    Junior Corey Young was the team's fifth man in both those tourneys last year but appears to be the No. 2 man now, said Coach Jim Meek.

  • Distance runners propel Tell...

    HUNTINGBURG - Zach Avallone and Spencer Sandage each won two individual events to lead Tell City past Southridge 71-53 in boys track Tuesday.

    Avallone won the 110-meter high hurdles in 16.35 seconds and the 300 intermediate hurdles in 42.25.

    Sandage won the 1600 run in 4:49.88 and the 3200 in 10:59.33.

    Dalton Sweeney took the 800 in 2:07.95 as the Marksmen won all three of the distance races.

    "In the three distance races we outscored them 25-2," noted Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden. "That was the difference in the meet."

  • Huber leads PC to victory

    RAMSEY - Nick Huber won three individual events and a relay as Perry Central won a boys triangular track meet Tuesday.

    Perry Central scored 69 points, Paoli 46, and North Harrison 41.

    Huber won the 110-meter high hurdles in 16.09 seconds despite running into a strong headwind.

    He won the 300 intermediate hurdles in 42.5 and took the high jump by clearing 6 feet, 3 inches.

    He teamed with Michael Ernst, Zach Hagedorn and Todd Gehlhausen to win the 1600 relay in 3:41.

    Ernst won the 800 run in 2:11.

  • PC has veteran golf team

    LEOPOLD - Coach Bill Dickerson thinks having an experienced team will lead to more improvement for Perry Central's boys golf team this season.

    Dickerson, starting his fourth year as the team's coach, has three seniors, including two fourth-year players, on his 11-man roster.

    The Commodores return five of their top six players from last year, when they finished 15-32, beat one team in the PLAC for the first time, and finished a best ever eighth of 14 teams in the Jasper sectional.

    Junior Zach Graves returns as the team's No. 1 golfer.

  • Softball Commodores feature...

    LEOPOLD - With only one senior and four letter winners on its roster, Perry Central's girls softball team will have to rely on young players this year.

    There are 12 freshmen and 11 sophomores on the 28-girl roster, and several of them will start.

    Completing the new look, they also have a new coach, Greg Gibson, the sixth coach in the team's six-year history.

  • PC has pitching depth

    LEOPOLD - New Perry Central baseball coach Ty Guillaume has inherited a deep pitching staff, including four left-handers with varsity experience.

    Senior left-hander Wes Linette is the team's No. 1 pitcher after going 3-4 for last year's 14-10 team (including a 2-1 loss to Southridge on a controversial balk call in the sectional) and then helping Rockport reach the American Legion World Series.

    But IHSAA rules state he will have to sit out the first four games of this season because his Legion team was still playing after this school year started.

  • Heritage Hills tops Tell City on...

    LINCOLN CITY - Heritage Hills scored four unearned runs to beat Tell City 4-2 in PAC girls softball Friday.

    The Marksmen committed four errors and each of them contributed to a Heritage Hills run.

    The Patriots outhit Tell City 6-5, with Kyla Gogel and Kelly Bettag each getting two hits.

    Five batters each had one hit for the Marksmen.

    The Patriots scored solo runs in the first, third, fifth and seventh innings, getting one hit each of those innings.

    Tell City tied the score 2-2 with two runs in the fourth inning.

  • Kast turns down chance to play...

    Tell City graduate Kris Kast attended two weeks of spring practice with Notre Dame's football team recently and found out he could have made the team. But he declined because he wants to concentrate on academics.

    When one of the top football programs in the country finishes with a worst ever 3-9 record, as Notre Dame did last fall, apparently it looks for new players everywhere, including among students already on campus.

    So 30 potential walk-ons reported for the first day of spring practice.

  • New Tell City girls tennis coach...

    TELL CITY - Nick Weyer has experience beating Tell City as a tennis player. Now he is trying to help the Marksman girls win as their new coach.

    Weyer, a 2003 Forest Park graduate, was a four-year varsity starter for the Rangers' boys tennis team, playing No. 2 doubles as a freshman and No. 1 doubles the next three years. All four years his doubles squad beat Tell City in straight sets.

    Succeeding Bob Kreilein, who decided to coach only the boys tennis team this school year, Weyer inherits four returning starters from last year's 6-8 team.
