  • PC takes 2nd in PLAC

    LEOPOLD—Cameron Bland drove in two runs as Perry Central beat Springs Valley 7-3 in PLAC baseball Wednesday.
    The win clinched at least a tie for second place in the conference for Perry Central at 4-2. Paoli won the title with a 5-1 conference record.
    Perry Central trailed 2-0 before scoring three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and two more each of the next two innings.
    Springs Valley outhit the Commodores 9-7, but Blackhawk pitchers walked five compared with three for Perry Central pitchers.

  • PC’s big inning beats Northeast...

    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.

  • Tell City slams Raiders

    HUNTINGBURG—Chloe Carman hit a grand slam and a double as Tell City pounded Southridge 14-3 in PAC softball Thurs-day.
    Carman hit her grand slam over the left-field fence in the Marksmen’s seven-run third inning.
    Justice Kuster, Lizzy Kehl, Ava Hilgenhold and Morgan Schuetter each added two RBIs for the game.
    Kehl went 3 for 3 with a triple and Emili Stephens went 3 for 4.
    Hilgenhold and Schuetter each added a single and a double and Kuster also had two hits.

  • 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.”

  • Paoli overtakes Bulldogs in 6th

    CANNELTON—Paoli scored six runs in the sixth inning to overtake Cannelton for an 8-2 baseball victory Thursday.
    Cannelton scored two runs in the fifth to take a 2-1 lead before Paoli’s big inning.
    Rafe Garrett pitched into the sixth inning for Cannelton and took the loss. He gave up five runs on six hits and two walks and struck out 12.
    Logan Marshall gave up three runs on three hits and one walk in two innings of relief.

  • 2A baseball sectional most wide...

    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.

  • Tell City falls to Raiders,...

    HUNTINGBURG—Southridge scored four runs in the sixth inning to break open a close game and beat Tell City 9-3 in PAC baseball Tuesday.
    The game was completed Tuesday after being suspended after four innings last Thursday due to lightning.
    “When the game started on Thursday we had a few errors that caused us to fall behind,” said Tell City Coach Trent Benningfield. “Once we resumed play on Tuesday, I thought we played much better and our energy was better.
