  • Huber selected MVP of all-county...

    There were more good players than usual to pick from for this year's All-Perry County boys basketball team, as the statistics bear out.

    Eight players had double-figure scoring averages. That's three more than last year and the most since 1999, when there were also eight (two years ago there were just two).

    This season also saw two of the four highest individual season field-goal percentages ever compiled in the county - and one of those players didn't even make all-county.

    Four players drew enough fouls to shoot more than 100 free throws. Several years no one did that.

  • Should PAC pick 12?

    Should the Pocket Athletic Conference pick 12 players for its all-conference basketball teams now that there are nine teams in the conference? Several coaches think so.

    Like most conferences, the PAC has named 10 players to each all-conference basketball team for decades.

    But this year Forest Park joined the conference while no team left in basketball (Tecumseh will stop competing in the conference in football next year, when Forest Park starts varsity football).

  • Girls basketball has most repeat...

    TELL CITY - The girls basketball team had the only repeat award winners at Tell City's winter sports banquet Monday.

    Kara McClintic, named the girls basketball Most Valuable Player last year, shared that award with Lauren Goffinet this year.

    Marianne Krueger and Dana Sibrel shared the team's most valuable defensive player award for the second year in a row. Krueger also won it two years ago.

    Krueger also won the team's hustle award for the third year in a row (she shared it with Emily Harpenau last year).

  • Hitz named Tell City football...

    TELL CITY - Don Hitz, who has served as an assistant coach at Tell City and Heritage Hills, was named Tell City's new head football coach Tuesday.

    Hitz, 44, served as an assistant coach at Tell City 1997-99 and returned to Tell City as an assistant for the 2007 season. He coached linebackers and receivers.

    He was also an assistant at Heritage Hills 1994-96, where he coached junior high teams and the high school receivers.

  • Schroeder on girls All-PLAC team

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central center Alie Schroeder was a repeat selection to the All-PLAC girls basketball team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

    Schroeder, a 6-foot center, led the conference in rebounding with 61 in six conference games, an average of 10.2 per game.

    "She had 15 more rebounds than anyone else in the conference, so that's probably her biggest asset," said Perry Central Coach Sarah Spindler. "And offensively I think she's improved a lot throughout her career."

  • Huber, Linette make All-PLAC...

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central seniors Nick Huber and Wes Linette were named to the All-PLAC boys basketball team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

    Huber, a 6-foot-2 guard, made the 12-man squad for the second year in a row.

    He led the conference in scoring with 23.2 points per game in conference games.

    He was third in the conference in rebounding with 46 in six conference games and third in free-throw shooting at 84.6 percent.

    He was second in two-point field goals made with 33 and second in three-pointers with 14.

  • Four unanimous choices on girls...

    Four players were unanimous choices for this year's All-Perry County girls basketball team.

    As usual the voters were the head coaches of the three Perry County teams; Tecumseh Coach Randy Graham, the only one to coach against all three county teams; and I, who saw each county team play at least seven times.

    I asked each voter to pick the five players they would want to put on the floor to try to win a game.

    All five picked Tell City forward-guard Lauren Goffinet, Tell City guard Kara McClintic, Perry Central center Alie Schroeder, and Tell City center Dana Sibrel.

  • Zuelly selected for All-PAC team

    TELL CITY - Tell City guard Ryan Zuelly was named to the All-PAC boys basketball team Monday in voting by conference coaches.

    Zuelly, a 6-foot senior, led the Marksmen in scoring at 14.8 points per game, in assists with 3.6 per game, and in free-throw shooting at 75.5 percent.

    He averaged 2.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.

    He hit 42.0 percent from the field, including 33.9 percent from three-point range.

    Tell City Coach John Hayes was pleased Zuelly made the team but said he was disappointed he was the only Marksman on the 10-man honor squad.

  • Schroeder picks Vincennes

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central senior Alie Schroeder signed a letter of intent Thursday to continue her volleyball career at Vincennes University.

    Vincennes Coach Tina Miller said Schroeder will probably play middle hitter, the position she played most of the time in high school, for the Trail Blazers. "Or perhaps right side. But we're recruiting her as a middle hitter."

    Asked how much she expects Schroeder to play next year, the coach said, "I think she'll play a lot. That's the advantage of a junior college. We have no returning middle (hitter)s next year."
