    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.

    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.

    “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.

    LEOPOLD—Linton-Stockton controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage in defeating Perry Central 63-13 in the Class A football sectional semifinals Friday.
    On Linton-Stockton’s first play, Tyler Meurer took a pitchout and ran around the right side for 19 yards.
    Three plays later he rushed for another 19 yards on another sweep. On nearly all their sweeps the Miners pulled at least one guard, who did a good job really getting into the Commodore defense.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s football team gets a chance to improve how much it has improved in recent weeks when it hosts North Posey for a semifinal sectional game Friday at 7 p.m.
    After Tell City’s first-round sectional win over Eastern Greene Friday, Tell City Coach Ronnie Robinson noted that both of the Marksmen’s possible semifinal opponents “have beaten us in the regular season and I think that’s a motivating factor to our kids to prove that we have gotten better.”

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central and Linton-Stockton will meet in their Class A football sectional for the fifth consecutive year Friday at 7 p.m., but both will sport slightly different looks this year.
    Both graduated quite a few starters last year and 9-1 Linton is “a little bit more run-oriented” this year, Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson said Monday. “They probably run 60 percent of the time.”

    NASHVILLE—Tell City’s team and the Simpson twins just missed qualifying for the boys state cross country meet with their performances in the Brown County semistate Saturday.
    The top six teams in the 20-team semistate and the top 10 individuals not on those teams qualified for state.
    Tell City finished seventh with 212 points, just nine behind sixth-place Terre Haute North.
