    POSEYVILLE—North Posey, which will host Tell City Friday at 7:30 p.m., will be the best football team the Marksmen have faced this season, Tell City Coach Ryan George said Monday.
    The Vikings, ranked No. 5 in the state in the Class 2A AP poll and No. 6 in the coaches’ poll, are 6-0 overall and 5-0 in the PAC as they threaten to run away with the conference title. Their average winning margin is 42-10 and their only close game has been a 34-27 win at Heritage Hills.

  • Commmodores can clinch tie for PLAC

    Sports Editor

    PAOLI—Paoli is 5-1 in football games it has played this year, including 3-0 in the PLAC.
    But because the Rams opted not to play conference foe Crawford County this season, PLAC officials are calling that a conference loss for the Rams.
    Thus Perry Central, 2-0 in the PLAC, can clinch a tie for the conference title with a win in Friday’s 7 p.m. game with Paoli even though the Commodores still have two conference games after that.

    TELL CITY—McKenzie Hayes made 18 kills as Tell City defeated Pike Central 25-12, 25-10, 25-10 in PAC volleyball Tuesday to remain unbeaten in the conference.

    Hayes needs just six kills tonight against Mater Dei to become the first Tell City player to reach 2,000 for her career.
    She also made two blocks and served four aces Tuesday.
