  • New football sectionals favor PC...

    Tell City and Perry Central will be in the same class in football next year but are not likely to meet in the postseason.
    Though they are in the same county and roughly only 15 miles apart, the IHSAA, in its infinite wisdom, saw fit Monday to place them in different Class 2A sectionals for the next two years.
    Perry Central could have to make a long trip east to play Switzerland County in a sectional game. But the good news for the Commodores is they are in a much easier sectional than Tell City’s.

  • Marksmen nip Perry Central

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Often an inexperienced softball team gets little production from the bottom half of its batting order.
