  • Archers tie for 2nd in PAC

    Tell City and Pike Central each scored 201 points, eight behind champion Heritage Hills.

  • Huber on Indiana all-star ballot

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central guard Nick Huber is on the Indiana All-Star ballot for the annual Indiana vs. Kentucky senior basketball all-star series.

    Huber is one of 114 players on the ballot released Wednesday by The Indianapolis Star, the Indiana game's sponsor.

    Huber averaged 20.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game and hit 83.0 percent of his free throws this season, leading the Commodores in all three categories.

  • Tell City girls strong in throws...

    TELL CITY - Despite a lack of numbers, Tell City girls track coach Katie Chinn hopes her team's strength in the throws and distance races will offset a lack of experienced sprinters.

    The Marksmen have 16 girls on their roster, one more than last year but three fewer than the previous year.

    "We'll probably be strongest in the throws and distance events," said Chinn, in her first year as head coach after serving as assistant coach the last two years.

  • Perry Central boys set sights on...

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central boys track coach Jason Barnett would like for his team to win the PLAC title for the third year in a row.

    But "winning the sectional is probably our main goal," he said. "We've never won one in boys track at our school."

    He has 32 boys on the roster, "the most we've ever had," he noted. And "they've been really working hard - as hard as we can considering the weather (rain and snow have forced some practices indoors)."

  • Balanced Marksmen aiming for PAC...

    TELL CITY - Coach Chris Hollinden thinks Tell City's boys track team has enough balance to win its first conference title in 14 years.

    The Marksmen have a deep team again, with 38 boys. It's even pretty balanced by classes, with 12 seniors and 13 freshmen.

    The Marksmen have climbed from seventh to third to second in the PAC in Hollinden's first three years as coach.

    Now Hollinden thinks they should be favored to win it, though they might not have as many individual standouts as they've had in some years.

  • Perry Central girls could be...

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central's girls track team won the PLAC title by 83 points over the runner-up last year. So it should be scary news to the rest of the conference that Coach Becky Genet thinks the Commodores are even stronger this year.

    "I feel like we're going to be more rounded and stronger than we've been for several years, though there are still some areas we're not real strong in," said Genet, starting her 30th year at the team's helm.

    The Commodores have 26 girls on their roster, the same as last year. Sixteen have lettered in the past - seven more than last year.

  • Tell City boys sixth in PAC

    TELL CITY - Tell City, with just four boys competing, finished sixth in the junior high boys PAC swim meet Thursday.

    Heritage Hills won with 349 points. Tell City scored 75.

    The Archers had five boys on their roster and one was unable to compete because he was sick.

    So they had to have a diver swim to give them enough boys to enter two relays.

    They placed fourth in the 200-yard freestyle relay, with Wade Bryant, Trent Harding, Colin Malone and Gate Otto swimming it in 3:29.95.

    Those same four boys placed fifth in the 200 medley relay in 3:41.54.

  • Tell City girls 2nd in PAC

    TELL CITY - Amanda Wagner won two individual events and a relay to lead Tell City to second place in the six-team PAC junior high girls swim meet Thursday.

    Wagner won the 50-yard breaststroke in 32.21 seconds and the 100 individual medley in 1:05.57.

    She teamed with Bailey Malone, Amber Fentress and Jessica Ballman to win the 200 free relay in 1:58.20.

    Those same four girls placed second in the 200 medley relay in 2:12.96.

    Malone placed second in the 200 free in 2:21.60.

    Ballman took second in the 100 free in 1:06.94 and fourth in the 50 free in 29.33.

  • Huber, Schroeder win most PC...

    LEOPOLD - Nick Huber was named the boys Most Valuable Player and Alie Schroeder received the most girls awards at Perry Central's basketball awards program Thursday.

    Huber received the most varsity boys awards, including ones for leading scorer, best free-throw percentage, most rebounds, and All-PLAC.

    He was a repeat winner for free-throw percentage.

    No girls MVP award was presented, but Schroeder was a repeat winner for leading scorer, most rebounds and most blocked shots (she shared the blocked shots award with Melissa Schatz last year).
