  • Ress leads Tell City past Paoli...

    PAOLI—Josalyn Ress struck out 18 and drove in two runs as Tell City beat Paoli 3-1 in eight innings in girls softball Saturday.

    Ress’ strikeout total  is a single-game school record. She walked none and gave up two hits.

    She shut out the Rams for seven innings in a row after giving up an unearned run on a hit by pitch and three passed balls in the first inning.

    Still Tell City trailed 1-0 going into the sixth inning.

    Ress singled home the tying run that inning after Hana Reed singled and advanced to second on a wild pitch.

  • Commodores stumble three times

    POSEYVILLE—Perry Central hit well in only one of three baseball games as it lost three times to PAC teams Saturday and Monday.

    The Commodores outhit North Posey 10-5 in the first game of their doubleheader Saturday. But they lost 5-3 as the Vikings took advantage of three hit batsmen, three Perry Central errors and a dropped third strike.

    The dropped third strike and a dropped fly in center field led to three unearned runs in the Vikings’ four-run first.

  • Weedman's no-hitter helps...

    TELL CITY—Other than an inexplicable 5-3 season-opening loss to Northeast Dubois, Tell City’s baseball team has scored at least 13 runs in each of its four games.

    That has helped the Marksmen to a 3-1 record, though Tell City Coach Mark Wahl said after Wednesday’s 13-12 win over Tecumseh, “Our starting pitching has disappointed to this point.”

    That changed Friday, though, as Shane Weedman no-hit South Central in the Marksmen’s 16-0 victory.

    In other singles matches Jennifer Lundergan beat Kayla Bailey 6-1, 6-0 in No. 2 and Tessa England beat Helen Schmidt 6-0, 6-1 in No. 3.
