    Perry Central lost its other two matches to Southridge 25-9, 25-8 and to Northeast Dubois to finish third in the four-team round-robin.

    Julie Davis had 19 assists.

    Jamie Brinksneader served 12 points, including two aces, and Kohnert added 11 points.

    Tell City went 2-1 in Harrison's six-team tourney Saturday.

  • PC boys win Boonville meet

    BOONVILLE - Perry Central placed four runners in the top 11 to win the Boonville invitational boys cross country meet Saturday.

    Tell City, led by fourth-place finisher Alex Fenn, placed fourth in the 14-team meet.

    Tell City freshman Sarah Goffinet won the girls race to lead the Marksmen to third place in it. Perry Central finished fourth.

    Jake Schwartz placed third in 16:43, one second ahead of Tell City's Fenn, to lead Perry Central in the boys race.

  • Commodores stop Cougars

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central held South Decatur to 18 yards of total offense and got a big offensive game from T.J. Hall to beat the Cougars 30-6 in football Saturday.

    The Commodores totally stopped South Decatur's running game, holding the Cougars to minus-2 yards on 25 carries.

    A 20-yard loss after a bad snap on what was supposed to be a punt and two quarterback sacks - one by Dakota Huff and one by Robbie Piper - severely hurt the Cougars' rushing yardage.

    But their top running back, Lincoln Hacker, gained only 35 yards on 18 carries.

  • Thomas leads Tell City past...

    ROCKPORT - Amber Thomas shot a 6-over-par 42 to lead Tell City past South Spencer 238-241 in girls golf Wednesday.

    Thomas birdied two holes, the par-3 No. 3 hole and the par-4 No. 6 hole, on her way to medalist honors on the Lakewood Country Club course.

    She turned in her best score of the season and tied for the best of her career.

    She finished seven strokes ahead of South Spencer leader Shayna Miller.

    Tell City's second and third scorers were C.J. Fentress with a 63 and Jessica Ballman 65.

  • Cougars defeat Perry Central

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central had good spiking and serving statistics but lost to North Harrison 13-25, 25-17, 25-27, 25-8, 15-12 in volleyball Thursday.

    Megan Hedinger made 13 kills and 10 blocks for Perry Central.

    Jessica Huber added eight kills and two blocks and Emily Tempel made four kills.

    Sloan Harpenau had 13 assists and Tessa Lynch added 10 to aid the hitters.

    Lynch served three aces and Huber added two. Kyla Edwards went 15 for 15 serving with one ace.

  • Gibson Southern tops Tell City

    TELL CITY - Learning a new offense and having serve reception problems contributed to Tell City's 25-16, 19-25, 25-21, 25-10 PAC volleyball loss to Gibson Southern Thursday.

    "We just put in a new offense yesterday (switching from a 5-1 to a 6-2) and I felt like that was a learning experience again," said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

    Paige Gelarden, who became the second setter in the new offense, had eight assists and original setter Julie Davis had 11. And the Marksmen "had more attacks than we'd had in the last two games," said Hayes.

  • Orleans outspikes Cannelton

    CANNELTON - Cannelton had trouble making good returns in a 25-7, 25-15, 25-9 volleyball loss to Orleans Thursday.

    The Bulldogs often were unable to set up their bump-set-spike attack. And when they did make spikes, only two of them went for kills - one apiece by Sarah Powers and Shy May.

    Cannelton pulled within 21-14 in the second game as Jaci Garrett served a point.

    But Orleans then forced a side out and served the next two points to build its lead back to 10.

    Freshman Sammie James served four points, including one ace, to lead Cannelton for the match.
