  • PC girls win PLAC by 83 points

    MITCHELL—Complete team scores released Monday show that Perry Central won Friday’s PLAC girls track meet by 74 points, its biggest margin of victory since winning by 83 in 2007.
    Results released Friday did not include girls team scores or field events scoring.

  • Sectional should be big day for...

    Tell City and Perry Central’s girls track teams had excellent records going into Tuesday’s sectional - Tell City was 24-3, its best record in years and Perry Central was 28-8-1 - and both did well in the sectional.
    But neither could beat defending champion Jasper because of the Wildcats’ superior depth.
    However the Jasper boys sectional today is likely to produce a champion from Perry County for the fourth year in a row. The only question seems to be whether it will be Tell City or Perry Central.
