    REO—Perry Central used strong rebounding and fast breaks to beat South Spencer 64-39 in girls basketball Tuesday.
    The Commodores opened with a full-court press and used their quick hands to make several steals, which they turned into layups.
    Senior guard Brittany Parker entered the game needing just two steals to break Perry Central’s career record of 196 set by 1991 graduate Cindy Etienne.

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Greg Arnold was hired as Tell City’s boys basketball coach Sept. 9, so he is obviously getting a later start than most coaches.
    Years ago Indiana high school coaches couldn’t work with their teams during the summer but all teams started practice Oct. 15.
    Now coaches can work with and coach their team in games for two months during the summer but are not allowed to start regular practices until Nov. 10.

  • Like Tell City, Loogootee also...

    In the late 1970s Tell City and Loogootee had probably the most stable boys basketball coaching situations in the state.
    Loogootee’s Jack Butcher had the highest coaching salary in the state and Tell City’s Bob Lochmueller had the second highest salary, and there was a good reason they were well paid.
    Butcher was in the midst of a 45-year run as Loogootee’s coach that would see him finish with a state-record 806 career victories.

    CANNELTON—Michael Snyder was a starting guard for Cannelton’s 1998 Class A boys basketball sectional championship team.
    That was the Bulldogs’ only sectional title in the last 62 years, though, so the odds are against their winning another title soon.
    So what was the main reason Snyder wanted the job as the Bulldogs’ new coach?

  • Parker propels Perry Central...

    LEOPOLD—Brittany Parker had 22 points, nine rebounds, six steals and four assists as Perry Central beat Corydon 58-41 in girls basketball Friday.
    She hit 8 of 16 shots from the field and 5 of 7 free throws.
    While pleased with Parker’s big game, Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume said, “It was a team effort tonight.
    “We went 10 deep tonight and they all came out and played really hard.

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Strong defense allowed Tell City to overcome its poor shooting and beat Cannelton 44-12 in girls basketball Friday.
    The Marksmen hit only 32.3 percent from the field, missing several open shots, including some in the lane. And they hit only 4 of 16 free throws.
    But they held Cannelton to 21.1 percent field-goal shooting. And they made 26 steals and forced 42 turnovers overall without using a full-court press.

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City has its smallest girls swim team in nine years and one of its least experienced.
    There are only five letter winners on the Marksmen’s 12-girl roster. “We had about five letter winners not come back,” noted Tell City Coach Mike Page.
    There is only one freshman, diver Alesa Roark, on the team. But of the three seniors, five juniors and three sophomores, five are first-year swimmers.

  • Trojans top Perry Central

    OAKLAND CITY—Perry Central hit only 24.4 percent from the field in a 61-37 season-opening girls basketball loss to Wood Memorial Tuesday.
    The Commodores also had problems with Wood Memorial’s full-court press, committing 14 first-half turnovers.
    “We didn’t shoot very well and we had way too many unforced turnovers,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume. “At times we did a good job breaking the press but then we’d miss a layup.
