  • LaRue, Mater Dei outgun...

    LEOPOLD—Hank LaRue answered each Perry Central run with clutch shooting as Mater Dei beat the Commodores 74-62 in boys basketball Saturday.

    Mater Dei, ranked sixth in the state in Class 2A and a possible sectional opponent for Perry Central, built a 38-23 halftime lead as LaRue scored 15 points.

    Despite Mater Dei’s depth and quickness, Perry Central was able to cut that gap to five with a full-court press in the third quarter.

  • Washington Catholic downs cold...

    WASHINGTON—Cannelton’s shooting woes continued in a 67-40 boys basketball loss to Washington Catholic Saturday.

    The Bulldogs hit just 22.0 percent from the field overall and 5 of 39 from three-point range.

    “We were getting good looks, but nothing was dropping,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. “We were hesitant on our outside shots. We catch the ball and think about our shot instead of being confident and taking the open shot.”

  • Tell City pins Chargers; goes 3-...

    TELL CITY—Tell City won four matches by pins in a 40-18 wrestling victory over Pike Central Tuesday.

    The Marksmen also won three decisions. And for once forfeits did not hurt them as they scored as many points on forfeits (six) as they gave up (two weight classes were double forfeits).

    Jessie Lawalin, Ryan Henrickson, Jared Keown and Zach Roberts earned Tell City’s pins, all in the second period.

    Kyle Shrubb won a 13-5 major decision for the Marksmen. Andrew Dauby and Dylan Froehlich won regular decisions.

  • Bulldogs lose two close ones

    FRENCH LICK—Cold field-goal shooting and a lack of depth hurt Cannelton’s girls basketball team as it lost two games in Springs Valley’s tourney Saturday.

    The Bulldogs had only six players for the first-round game (two seniors were taking the SAT and did not arrive until halftime of the consolation game) and lost to Springs Valley 47-45.

    Cannelton led 11-1 early. “Then we kind of got lost on defense in our (3-2) zone and gave up a lot of uncontested shots on the wings,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.

  • Tell City girls outswim Jeeps

    TELL CITY—C.J. Fentress won two individual events and a relay to lead Tell City past Northeast Dubois 107-63 in girls swimming Tuesday.

    Fentress won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:14.70 and the 100 free in 1:01.44.

    She teamed with Chelsea Malone, Bailey Malone and Jennifer Dinkel to win the 200 free relay in 1:55.30.

    Erika Hauenstein, Amanda Wagner and the Malone sisters won the 200 medley relay in 2:03.04.

  • Jeeps defeat Marksman boys

    TELL CITY—Nick Bower won two freestyle sprints but Tell City lost to Northeast Dubois 85-63 in boys swimming Tuesday.

    Bower won the 50-yard freestyle in 24.43 seconds and the 100 free in 58.64.

    Tell City swept all three places in diving. Taylor Maddle won with 169.10 points, Logan Bolin was second with 153.30, and Chris Martin third with 126.80.

    Greg Clayton earned Tell City’s other first place with a 2:07.29 clocking in the 200 free.

    He took second in the 500 free in 5:45.91 and freshman teammate Hunter Sandage was third in 7:50.83.

  • Perry Central puts Trojans away...

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central started the game on a 20-4 run defeating Wood Memorial 71-55 in boys basketball Friday.

    Perry Central Coach Matt Carter said, “ We got off to a great start. We moved the ball well. We got great shots. We got the ball inside and scored.”

    Alex Rogier made a six-foot jumper in the lane to start the Commodore scoring.

    Trevor King then made a three-point shot from the top of the key, but the Commodores got the ball inside again for baskets by Ian Hahus and Rogier.

  • Raiders run past Tell City

    HUNTINGBURG—Southridge got several fast breaks off Tell City turnovers in the third quarter and beat the Marksmen 65-51 in PAC boys basketball Friday.

    The first half was close all the way, with Southridge taking a 28-25 halftime lead on a rebound basket by 6-foot-6 junior center Austin Rasche.

    But the Raiders scored the first 10 points of the third quarter to take control.

    Rasche hit a three-pointer from the top of the key to start that period’s scoring.

    The Raiders then made three fast-break layups off steals.

  • Rappites' rebounding...

    CANNELTON—New Harmony used strong rebounding and a big first half by Robert Perry to defeat Cannelton 57-33 in boys basketball Friday.

    The Rappites led only 13-10 at the end of the first quarter.

    The Bulldogs had no answer for the 6-foot-5 Perry in the second quarter, though, as he totaled 13 points, eight rebounds and two blocked shots in the period and New Harmony increased its lead to 11 at the half.

    Perry finished the first half with 20 points and nine rebounds as the Rappites outrebounded the Bulldogs 29-13 in the half.

  • PC girls can’t stop...

    LYNNVILLE—Perry Central did not play strong defense consistently in a 40-36 girls basketball loss to Tecumseh Thursday.

    Tecumseh outshot the Commodores from the field 50.0 percent to 30.2 percent.

    “We didn’t play very good defense,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “We really had a letdown there—I was really disappointed with that. We just played two or three minutes here and there.

    “Eight of their (nine) two-point baskets in the second half came from within five feet of the basket.”
