  • 2A baseball sectional most wide open ever

    The first high school event I covered after being hired as the News’ sports editor May 31, 1978, was the Tell City baseball sectional, so this week’s will be the 41st I have covered. And I believe it’s the most wide open one ever.
    The arrival of class sports in the 1997-98 school year should have made the Class 2A sectional that Tell City and Perry Central competes in more balanced, but South Spencer and Mater Dei have generally always been powerhouses in it.

  • Paoli overtakes Bulldogs in 6th

    Logan Marshall gave up three runs on three hits and one walk in two innings of relief.

  • Rangers, Wolfpack top Tell City

    TELL CITY—Tell City scored five runs in the first three innings but lost to Crawford County 6-5 in eight innings in baseball Thursday.
    “We played really well the first three innings and then we just shut down,” said Tell City Coach Trent Benningfield.
    “We have to find a way to continue to put up runs and not let teams hang around. When you let teams hang around until the end of the game, it usually doesn’t end well. We never could make an adjustment and stop the bleeding on defense.”

  • Tell City slams Raiders

  • PC’s big inning beats Northeast Dubois

    LEOPOLD—It’s become a familiar method of operation for Perry Central’s softball team: fall behind early, score all its runs in one big inning late, and win.
    The Commodores did that for the third game in a row as they rallied for six runs in the sixth inning to beat Northeast Dubois 6-5 Friday.
    Alana Schepers drove in two runs in that inning.
    She and Chelsey Billings each hit a single and a double for the game.
    Catie Hauser also had two hits and Karissa Gayer added a double.
