    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—A common refrain for Cannelton’s girls basketball team is true again this year: The Bulldogs lack height and depth.
    There are only seven players on the team, one fewer than last year.
    There are two 5-foot-8 players, including one who will start, but the rest are between 5-2 and 5-5.
    There are three sophomores and only one senior on the team.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central went undefeated in PLAC volleyball this fall, winning all but one match in straight sets.
    So it was no surprise that for the third year in a row the Commodores placed a record-tying four girls on the 12-girl All-PLAC team selected by conference coaches Thursday.
    Setter Grace James made the team for the third year in a row and Jordan Sprinkle made it for the second consecutive year. Maddie Hubert and Brittany Parker made it for the first time.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central had seven players elected to the All-PLAC football team Thursday, including four of the team’s five repeat selections.
    On offense Kane James made the team as a lineman, Devin Martin as a receiver, and Nathan Shaw as an at-large selection.
    On defense Nick Coultas made it as a lineman, Jacob Braun as a linebacker, and Lane Lynch and Josh Taylor as defensive backs.
    Five Perry Central selectees are seniors and Braun and Lynch are juniors.

  • Commodores may have quickest team

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Short basketball teams generally hope to overcome their lack of height with quickness.
    This year Perry Central’s girls basketball team has only one starter over 5-foot-6, 5-9 1/2 Skyly Cummings.
    But fortunately for the Commodores, “one through five I think this is probably the quickest team we’ve had since I’ve been here,” Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume said Thursday.

    Sports Editor

    INDIANAPOLIS—This year Perry Central’s volleyball team matched its school-record 27 wins from last season and added a sectional title and the team’s first regional title.
    So it was no surprise that the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association named Perry Central Coach Becky Genet the Class 2A Coach of the Year for the southern half of the state Sunday for the second year in a row.
    The coaching awards were voted on by a panel of volleyball coaches from throughout the state.

  • Brown makes All-PAC again

    Sports Editor

    FERDINAND—Tell City senior Elliott Brown was one of five repeat selections on the All-PAC football team selected by conference coaches Monday.
    Last year Brown shared the conference Most Valuable Player award with Gibson Southern quarterback Nick Sellers.
    But Sellers won the MVP award by himself this year, as Tell City’s conference record was not as good as last year and Brown’s individual statistics were not quite as good as last year because opposing defenses keyed on him even more heavily this year.

    FERDINAND—Strong blocking and all-around play helped Cardinal Ritter of Indianapolis edge Perry Central 25-21, 24-26, 25-14, 23-25, 15-12 in the Class 2A volleyball semistate semifinals Saturday.
    “They were quicker on the front line than any team we’ve played,” said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet.

  • Carbo: Baseball has had steroids...

    I get a lot of phone calls from a variety of people involved in sports at various levels.
    But I have to admit that I was surprised a couple of weeks ago when I answered a call and the voice on the other end said, “This is Bernie Carbo.”
    For those of you too young to remember, Carbo was a Major League Baseball outfielder who played for the Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Cardinals (twice), Boston Red Sox (twice), Milwaukee Brewers, Cleveland Indians and Pittsburgh Pirates 1969-80.
