  • PC wins 1 of 3 games

    DUBOIS - Perry Central's baseball team hit three home runs as it beat Barr-Reeve 12-2 in the Northeast Dubois Classic Saturday.

    Bo Gibson hit a two-run shot in the first inning, Clint Schank hit a solo shot in the fourth inning, and Wes Linette added a three-run blast later that inning.

    The Commodores' 10-hit attack also included two doubles by Austin Hauser, who drove in two runs. Gibson and Linette each drove in three.

    Perry Central batters did not strike out at all in the six-inning game.

  • Perry Central second, TC third...

    TELL CITY - Perry Central won only one event but used its depth to place second in the seven-team Marksmen Invitational girls track meet Saturday.

    Forest Park won with 140 points and Perry Central scored 113.

    Tell City, which won four events, placed third with 87 points.

    Perry Central's Jessica Huber won the 300-meter low hurdles in 51.78 seconds and placed second in the 100 intermediate hurdles in 16.78, just six-hundredths of a second behind winner Karla Knust of Forest Park.

    Tell City junior Tiffany Davis won the 1600 run in 5:47.50 and the 3200 in 12:36.41.

  • Castle boys outrun Marksmen

    NEWBURGH - Zach Avallone won two events but Tell City lost to Castle 80-43 in boys track Wednesday.

    Avallone won the 300-meter intermediate hurdles in 41.41 seconds and the long jump at 18 feet, 7 1/4 inches.

    He placed second in the 110 high hurdles in 15.08.

    Tell City sprinter Kyle Kessinger, still recovering from a preseason ankle injury, ran only one race but won it handily.

    He took the 400 dash in 51.27 seconds, just one-hundredth of a second behind fifth place on Tell City's all-time honor roll.

  • Harrison nips Tell City

    EVANSVILLE - Harrison won No. 1 and 2 singles and No. 1 doubles to edge Tell City 3-2 in girls tennis Thursday.

    Tell City's Stephani Wrye beat Daniele Coleman 6-2, 6-4 in No. 3 singles.

    The Marksmen also won in No. 2 doubles, with Kari Gladish and Jennifer McDaniel outlasting Mandy Brooks and Ellie Small 7-6 (7-2), 6-7 (2-7), 10-6.

    Harrison won the top two singles matches each 6-1, 6-1. Sarah Beudel beat Kathi Kassen in No. 1 and Sarah Mastison beat Bethany Peter in No. 2.

  • Crawford County defeats Cannelton

    MARENGO - Cannelton's girls softball team got its first hits and run of the season Thursday but lost to Crawford County 24-1.

    Crawford County put the game away with 18 runs in the first inning, when the Bulldogs committed five errors.

    But the Bulldogs settled down after that and committed only two errors the rest of the way.

    After being no-hit in their first two games, they got three hits in this game, including a double to left-center field by Stephanie Posey in the fourth inning.

    Posey came around to score on two ground outs, with Shy May getting the RBI.

  • PC falls to Raiders, Wolfpack

    LEOPOLD - Opponents' late-inning rallies beat Perry Central in baseball Wednesday and Thursday.

    Southridge beat the Commodores 8-5 at Huntingburg Wednesday, scoring two runs in the bottom of the fifth to break a 5-5 tie.

    Perry Central led Crawford County 7-3 going into the seventh inning Thursday. But the Wolfpack rallied for five runs in the top of the seventh to win the PLAC game 8-7.

    Three hits, three walks and two errors fueled that rally.

    Perry Central left-hander Drew Schroer gave up the tying runs and was then relieved by Seth Raetz, who took the loss.

  • Huber breaks PC hurdles record

    MARENGO - It looks as if no one will come close to Perry Central in the PLAC girls track meet again.

    The Commodores won that meet by 83 points last year, and they finished 60 points ahead of the runner-up Thursday in a meeting of the top four teams from last year's conference meet.

    Perry Central scored 108 points, Mitchell 48, Crawford County 39, and Paoli 31.

    Jessica Huber set a Perry Central school record as she won the 100-meter intermediate hurdles in 16.04 seconds.

    Rachael Rayford won the 1600 run in 5:46 and the 800 in 2:36.24.

  • Huber ties PC's high jump...

    MARENGO - Nick Huber tied Perry Central's high jump record and the Commodores dominated the distance races as they won a boys quadrangular track meet Thursday.

    Perry Central scored 94 points, Paoli 77, Mitchell 51, and Crawford County 6.

    Huber won the high jump, clearing 6 feet, 5 inches to tie the school record set by Loyd Jobe in 1990.

    He strained a calf muscle trying to break the record, though, so he did not run the 300-meter intermediate hurdles or 1600 relay.

    He had already run the 110 high hurdles and won them in 15.53 seconds.

  • Tell City rallies to beat...

    TELL CITY - Perhaps Tell City's baseball team should join the Southern Indiana Athletic Conference.

    The Marksmen are 2-1 against SIAC teams after rallying for seven runs in the sixth inning to beat Harrison 9-3 Thursday.

    Harrison entered the game with a 4-1 record and led 3-2 going into the bottom of the sixth inning.

    But four hits, five walks and one Harrison error that inning gave the Marksmen a six-run lead.

  • South Central tops Bulldogs

    CANNELTON - Cannelton's baseball team hasn't lost by the 10-run rule yet, but South Central scored in six of the seven innings to beat the Bulldogs 16-6 Thursday.

    Cannelton tied the game 6-6 in the bottom of the third inning with two runs on two walks, a single by Thomas Lane, and RBI grounders by Spencer Herzog and Cody Lawalin.

    South Central came right back with four runs in the top of the fourth to take the lead for good, though.

    The Rebels had just two hits that inning, as two walks, two throwing errors and a wild pitch also contributed to those runs.
