    TELL CITY—Tell City’s football team gets a chance to improve how much it has improved in recent weeks when it hosts North Posey for a semifinal sectional game Friday at 7 p.m.
    After Tell City’s first-round sectional win over Eastern Greene Friday, Tell City Coach Ronnie Robinson noted that both of the Marksmen’s possible semifinal opponents “have beaten us in the regular season and I think that’s a motivating factor to our kids to prove that we have gotten better.”

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central and Linton-Stockton will meet in their Class A football sectional for the fifth consecutive year Friday at 7 p.m., but both will sport slightly different looks this year.
    Both graduated quite a few starters last year and 9-1 Linton is “a little bit more run-oriented” this year, Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson said Monday. “They probably run 60 percent of the time.”

    The top six teams in the 20-team semistate and the top 10 individuals not on those teams qualified for state.

    LEOPOLD—Grace James’ serving in the third game and Jordan Sprinkle’s spiking in the fourth game propelled Perry Central past Linton-Stockon 23-25, 25-10, 25-20, 25-16 in the Class 2A volleyball regional Tuesday.
    The 27-9 Commodores will play Indianapolis Ritter, ranked No. 4 in the state, in the first match of the Forest Park semistate Saturday at 10 a.m.
    That will be followed by No. 1 Providence taking on unranked Union County at approximately noon.

  • Tell City will likely just miss...

    Tell City and Perry Central have played some exciting regular-season games in a variety of sports through the years, which led to intense fan interest in a possible rematch in the sectional.
    That’s never been possible in football, though, because the two county schools are in different classes in that sport.
    And it now appears that will remain the case next year, though just barely.
