  • Can Perry Central knock off Mater Dei?

    Tell City has advanced to the championship match of the Forest Park volleyball sectional the last three years, only to lose to Mater Dei.
    The Marksmen might well make it to the finals again this year, as they drew a first-round bye and need only to beat 6-15 South Spencer to reach the finals.
    Perry Central will likely get a shot at Mater Dei first, as they will meet in Thursday’s first semifinal match if both win first-round matches Tuesday.
