  • Cannelton's softball team...

    CANNELTON - Many people consider fastpitch softball primarily a pitcher-catcher game, so the good news for Cannelton's girls team is it has its starting pitcher and catcher returning from last season.

    The bad news for the Bulldogs is they have only one other starter returning from last year's 2-12 team--and she will be playing a different position this year.

    There are no seniors and only two juniors on the Bulldogs' 14-girl roster. "We're very, very young," said Coach Brian Garrett.

  • Memorial's big bats beat...

    TELL CITY - Evansville Memorial pounded out 13 hits, including four for extra bases, to beat Tell City 13-2 in baseball Saturday.

    The Tigers scored in every inning but the fourth as they won the game in six innings by the 10-run rule.

    They hurt Tell City pitching throughout their batting order. Their No. 9 batter went 4 for 4 with a double and four RBIs and they got three hits, including two doubles, from two batters in the No. 8 slot.

  • PC dominates triangular

    RAMSEY - Rachael Rayford won two individual distance races to lead Perry Central to victory in a girls triangular track meet Tuesday.

    Perry Central scored 89 points, North Harrison 46, and Paoli 26.

    The Commodores used their depth to dominate the meet. They won only six of the 13 individual events but took the top three places in three of them. They also won all three relays.

    Rayford won the 1600-meter run in 6:01.95 and the 800 in 2:45.9.

    She teamed with Lavina Schwartz, Tessa Lynch and Audra Gehlhausen to win the 3200 relay in 11:23.37.

  • Lyons named coach of year;...

    TELL CITY - Tell City's John Lyons has been named District 2 coach of the year and his point guard, Kara McClintic, was chosen all-district by the Hoosier Basketball Coaches Association.

    Lyons will be co-coach of the East team with District 1 coach of the year Jason Lane of Vincennes Lincoln in the HBCA's girls all-star game April 20 at the Evansville Sports Academy.

    But McClintic apparently will not get to play in the game due to a format change this year.

  • 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.
