    OAKLAND CITY—Wood Memorial will take an 0-5 record into Friday’s 7 p.m. football game with Perry Central.

    The Trojans scored just six points in their first three games combined but then scored 22 against North Knox and 16 against Eastern Greene.

    The Eagle Classic cross country invitational at Brown County is generally considered the semistate preview.
    Since that is the site where the semistate will also be held, most teams serious about trying to make a good showing in the semistate compete in the Eagle Classic.
    Tell City and Perry Central have run in it for several years and this year Tell City’s boys team came home with a first-place trophy. So that means the Marksmen are the favorites to win the semistate, right?
    Not quite.
