  • PC 3rd, Tell City 4th in 11-...

    JASPER—Tell City’s Nathan Ramsey and David McDaniel were surprise winners and Perry County athletes qualified for the regional in 19 events at the IHSAA boys track sectional Thursday.

    Perry Central finished third, Tell City fourth, and Cannelton ninth among 11 in team standings.

    Perry Central finished only one point behind Forest Park for second place. Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett said he thought the Commodores would have finished second had they not had to run the final race, the 1600-meter relay, in a hard, driving rain.

  • Commodores win 1, lose 2

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central scored on a throwing error in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat Springs Valley 3-2 in PLAC baseball Wednesday.

    After scoring solo runs in each of the first two innings, the Commodores had been held scoreless six innings in a row entering the ninth.

    Seth Raetz led off that inning with a single and continued to second base as the ball got past the left fielder.

    Ian Hahus then laid down a sacrifice bunt to get Raetz to third. But the catcher threw the ball into right field, allowing Raetz to score the winning run.

  • Gunn ties HR record

    FERDINAND—Trent Gunn tied Tell City’s single-season home run record but the Marksmen lost to Forest Park 11-2 in PAC baseball Wednesday.

    Gunn hit a two-run homer in the first inning, his ninth of the season. That tied the school record set by Ryan Kieser in 1999 and gave Gunn 47 RBIs, extending his own single-season record in that department.

    But the Marksmen could not generate any other runs as Forest Park pitcher Mitch Lampert scattered nine hits.

    Shane Weedman started for Tell City and took the loss, dropping his record to 5-2.

  • Chargers nip Tell City

    PETERSBURG—Pike Central scored three runs on just three hits to beat Tell City 3-1 in PAC girls softball Wednesday.

    Two walks and a double produced two runs for the Chargers in the first inning.

    A single, an error and a sacrifice fly gave them their other run in the third inning.

    Tell City scored its only run in the fifth inning.

    Cortni Strobel reached base on an error, was sacrificed to second by Megan Lawalin, and scored one out later on a single by Kyli Smithson.

  • Dorsam pitches, hits Jeeps past...

    LEOPOLD—McKenzie Dorsam hit two homers and two triples and pitched a two-hitter as Northeast Dubois overpowered Perry Central 14-0 in girls softball Friday.

    Dorsam’s homers were a three-run homer and a solo shot.

    The Jeeps scored four runs in the first inning to take control early.

    Dorsam was also in control on the pitching rubber. She struck out four and walked only one in the six-inning game.

    Singles by Cassy Schaad in the second inning and Morgan Gibson in the third inning were Perry Central’s only hits.

  • South Spencer edges Marksmen

    REO—Tell City won two of the three singles matches but lost to South Spencer 3-2 in the first round of the IHSAA girls tennis sectional Thursday.

    Tell City’s Bethany Peter shut out Jennah Banks 6-0, 6-0 in No. 1 singles.

    Peter will thus advance to the No. 1 singles individual sectional this week at Jasper, though whom she will play and when had not been decided at press time.

    Tell City sophomore Rachel Woznicki beat Kayla Drwal 7-5, 6-1 for the Marksmen’s other victory.

  • Schoen one-hits Bulldogs

    LANESVILLE—Ashley Schoen pitched a one-hitter as Lanesville beat Cannelton 12-2 in girls softball Thursday.

    Cannelton took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Jaci Garrett walked and advanced to second on Allicyn Garrett’s swinging bunt hit.

    Though the catcher had no chance to throw Allicyn Garrett out at first, she still attempted a throw, which went into right field.

    The ball went through the right fielder’s legs as she tried to pick it up, allowing Jaci Garrett to score.

  • Commodores 4th in quadrangular

    FRENCH LICK—Two Perry Central golfers tied for medalist honors but the Commodores finished fourth in a four-team match Thursday.

    Host Springs Valley won with 171 strokes on the Donald Ross course. Paoli shot 178, Corydon 179, and Perry Central 184.

    “If we can get these kids all playing well at the same time, I think we can compete,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson.

    Charlie Weatherholt and Brad Douglas each shot a 41 to lead Perry Central.

    Logan Shearn shot 48 and Dylan Hirsch 54 to complete the Commodores’ scoring.

  • Huber wins hurdles races,...

    LEOPOLD—Jessica Huber won both hurdles races to lead Perry Central to fifth place in the 11-team girls track sectional Tuesday.

    Sarah Goffinet won the 1600-meter run and Elizabeth Kohnert won both jumps as Tell City finished seventh.

    Cannelton, on the strength of Sammie James placing in both throws, finished 10th.

    Northeast Dubois won with 117 points, 20 ahead of runner-up Forest Park.

    Huber set personal records in both hurdles races as she won the 100 intermediates in 16.21 seconds and the 300 lows in 48.77.

  • Nine-run inning lifts Marksmen...

    LEOPOLD—Tell City trailed Perry Central 4-1 after two innings in baseball Monday and had scored its only run without a hit.

    But the Marksmen’s explosive offense exploded for nine runs in the third inning to propel them to a 15-9 victory.

    A single by Kyle Osborne and a double by Shane Weedman drove in the Marksmen’s first two runs of the inning.

    After a single by Jordan Heck, Trent Nelson tripled to right field to drive in two runs and give the Marksmen a 5-4 lead.

    Nelson scored on a bloop double to right by Travis Jones.
