    TELL CITY—Several coaches predicted North Posey, which will visit Tell City Friday at 7:30 p.m., could become one of the top three football teams in the PAC this year.
    So far that has come true. The Vikings are 4-2 overall and 3-2 in the PAC.
    They had to play last year’s top three PAC teams, Gibson Southern, Southridge and Heritage Hills, in consecutive weeks. They lost to the first two but came away with a 37-23 win over Heritage Hills.

    LEOPOLD—Most area football teams are run-oriented this year. But West Washington, which will visit Perry Central Friday at 6:30 p.m., likes to pass just as much.
    “They’re balanced - I’d say it’s about 50-50 passing and running,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson.
    Nick Marrs, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound senior, quarterbacks the 4-2 Senators.
    “He’s got a good arm and he’s pretty accurate most of the time,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson.

    LEOPOLD—Total yards and first downs indicated the game should be close, but Eastern Greene scored off three Perry Central turnovers in the first 14 minutes to beat the Commodores 45-12 in football Saturday.
    Eastern Greene returned the opening kickoff to its own 48-yard line and scored six plays later on a 9-yard pass from Caleb Hamilton to J.W. Howard.
    The Thunderbirds’ second possession ended when Perry Central’s Clay James intercepted a pass.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys cross country team showed its depth in several ways as it won its Lincoln Trail Invitational by 62 points Saturday.
    Tell City scored 34 points and Heritage Hills was second in the 10-team meet with 96.
    Perry Central finished eighth with 167 points and Cannelton was 10th with 300.
    Running without its usual No. 4 runner, Kaden Chestnut, who had a hip injury, Tell City still placed all five of its scorers in the top 10 and seven in the top 18 of the 87-runner field.

  • Playoff field looks balanced

    If Boston holds off the New York Yankees and the Chicago Cubs hold off Milwaukee this week, then I will have correctly predicted five of Major League Baseball’s six division winners this year.
    I didn’t pick Washington to win the National League East but I had it finishing second, so I wasn’t too far off there.
    I also predicted in preseason that Chris Sale would win the American League Cy Young Award and it looks as if he or Corey Kluber will win it.
