  • Avallone, Kessinger lead Tell...

    MOUNT VERNON - Zach Avallone and Kyle Kessinger each won one event to lead Tell City to second place in the nine-team Mount Vernon boys track invitational Friday.

    Castle romped to victory with 164 points. Tell City scored 84.

    "In nearly every event Castle had someone phenomenal and we had someone equally as good," said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden. "But because of their numbers (Castle is the largest school in Southwestern Indiana with an enrollment more than three times that of Tell City) they had a second person in each event almost as good as their first one."

  • Titans, Hornets top Tell City

    TELL CITY - Gibson Southern pounded out 18 hits, including five doubles and a home run, to beat Tell City 10-1 in PAC girls softball Thursday.

    The Titans scored in six of the seven innings as they hit the ball hard throughout their lineup.

    "They hit the ball hard and they hit it where we weren't," said Tell City Coach Dusty Beard.

    Christin Overton went 4 for 5 with five RBIs and Felicia Virden, their No. 8 hitter, drove in three runs with a single and a homer over the left-field fence.

  • Benham, Wolfpack slug Bulldogs

    CANNELTON - Bo Benham hit for the cycle as Crawford County beat Cannelton 11-0 in baseball Wednesday.

    The Wolfpack's Richard Edwards pitched a one-hitter, striking out 10 and walking two.

    Justin Dooley led off the bottom of the fifth inning for Cannelton with a double.

    But a strikeout, a ground out and a strikeout followed, stranding him at second and ending the game by the 10-run rule.

    Ethan Herzog pitched the first three innings for Cannelton to take the loss and Tyler Aud pitched the last two innings. They each struck out two and walked none.

  • Eagles, Trojans defeat PC

    LEOPOLD - Lanesville scored 10 runs in the fourth inning to beat Perry Central 15-8 in baseball Wednesday.

    The Eagles had seven hits, drew four walks and took advantage of one Perry Central error (the Commo-dores' only error of the game) in that big inning.

    The last seven runs of the inning were unearned because of the error.

    The Eagles outhit Perry Central 18-11 for the game, getting four doubles. "They were aggressive at the plate," said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.

  • McClintic plays good floor game...

    EVANSVILLE - Her shooting was rusty but the other parts of Kara McClintic's game were strong in the Hoosier Basketball Coaches Association's girls all-star game Sunday.

    The Tell City senior started at point guard for the West team and had six assists, five rebounds, two steals and one blocked shot in 27 minutes of action.

    Her first assist was probably her best, a nice thread-the-needle pass to Northeast Dubois star Allie Matheis for a wide open layup.

    McClintic had two assists in the last 50 seconds of the first half to help the West build a 45-38 halftime lead.

  • Perry Central outshoots Tell...

    ENGLISH - Zach Graves shot a 4-over-par 44 for medalist honors as Perry Central won a boys triangular golf match Monday.

    Perry Central shot 177 strokes, Jasper 181, and Tell City 196. Jasper did not bring its top five golfers, though it was scheduled as a varsity match.

    Graves birdied the par-4 No. 4 hole.

    Besides Graves, Perry Central scorers were Charles Weatherholt with a 44, Zach Rogier 46, and Travis Goffinet 47.

    Anthony Rennie, who shot a 48, and Logan Shearn, 52, also played for the Commodores.

  • PC loses two PLAC games

    LEOPOLD - Paoli scored two runs in the eighth inning to beat Perry Central 12-10 in PLAC girls softball Monday.

    Perry Central had tied the score 10-10 in the bottom of the seventh on Cassy Schaad's two-run double.

    That was the Commodores' first runs since the first inning, when they scored eight as Schaad hit a double and a single. She went 3 for 5 with four RBIs.

    Ashley Brown also went 3 for 5 for the Commodores. Hilarie Hahus went 2 for 3 plus walked once and was hit by a pitch once. Morgan Gibson drove in two runs.

  • Bulldogs lose three games

    MONTGOMERY - Barr-Reeve escaped a bases-loaded situation in the seventh inning to beat Cannelton 5-2 in baseball Monday.

    Cannelton loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, bringing the potential winning run to the plate.

    But two fly balls followed (the first too shallow for the runner from third to tag up and score), ending the game.

    Stephen Lane and Justin Dooley each went 2 for 4 to lead Cannelton's six-hit attack.

    Lane pitched a complete game, giving up eight hits and two walks and striking out three.

  • Huber sets 3 records in Dubois...

    DUBOIS - Nick Huber broke three school records and two meet records as he led Perry Central to third place in Northeast Dubois' boys track invitational Tuesday.

    Northeast Dubois won the seven-team meet with 166 points. Perry Central scored 108.

    Huber cleared 6 feet, 6 inches to win the high jump, breaking the school record of 6-5 he previously shared with Loyd Jobe.

    Huber won the 110-meter high hurdles in 14.50 seconds, breaking his own school record of 14.57 and the meet record of 15.06 set by Jeff Higdon in 1990.
