    WEST LAFAYETTE—Perry Central placed seventh among 16 teams in the Class A-3A 3200-meter relay at the Hoosier State Relays indoor track finals Saturday.

    Newton, a freshman, was substituting for Ian Bashor, who was in Canada on a spring-break vacation Saturday.

  • Rogier unanimous pick as all-...

    Alex Rogier led Perry County boys basketball players in four of the seven main statistical categories this season and finished third in two others.

    So it’s not surprising that the Perry Central senior was a unanimous choice as this year’s Most Valuable Player on the News’ All-Perry County team.

    The six voters for the award were the three county coaches, the two who coached against all three county teams (Kevin Oxley of Tecumseh and Rob Schulte of South Spencer) and me, who saw each county team play at least five times.

    LEOPOLD—Alex Rogier was named the Perry Central boys Most Valuable Player at the school’s basketball banquet Thursday.

    Kevin Rogier, Alex’s father, received a plaque from athletics director Bob Ransome for his years of service and dedication to the boys basketball program.

  • Atwell hopes to field freshman...

    Friday 25 Tell City football players signed letters of intent to continue their careers at the next level.

    Wait a minute, you say: Tell City’s never had that many players sign with colleges in one year.

    You’re right, but these were eighth grade players signing letters pledging to new Tell City varsity coach Travis Atwell that they will continue to play football next year.

    “I’m trying to get them to stick with football between middle school and high school because that’s where we’re losing them,” said Atwell.
