  • Ress GMAC Pitcher of Week

    OWENSBORO, Ky.—Tell City graduate Josalyn Ress was named the Great Midwestern Athletic Conference’s Pitcher of the Week last week, the second time this season she has received the honor.
    Ress, a junior at Kentucky Wesleyan College, went 2-1, with her only loss to NCAA Division II No. 10 North Georgia.
    She pitched 18 innings, including a 3-2 complete-game victory over Oakland City and a 2-0 shutout of Union, Ky.
    In those two games she struck out 13 in 14 innings and gave up only six hits and one earned run.

  • Commodores gave fans another fun...

    All good things come to an end, and Perry Central’s boys basketball season  did in Saturday’s first-round regional game.
    But the Commodores gave their fans another great ride, going 18-6 and winning consecutive sectionals for the first time in team history.
    In fact the current seniors won more games than any class in school history in their three-year varsity careers.
    They went 57-16 the last three years, edging the 1999 seniors who went 56-12 with one sectional title.

  • Hemmings, Parker head all-county...

    Two guards with similar games, Cannelton senior Mikah Hemmings and Perry Central junior Brittany Parker, are the co-Most Valuable Players of this year’s All-Perry County girls basketball team.

    Tell City center Kassidie Hayes, Perry Central guard Morgan Richardson, and Tell City guard/forward Logan Flannagan join them on the team.

    As usual, I asked the three county coaches and coaches who faced all three county teams to vote for the team. And since I saw each county team play at least six games, I joined them in the voting.
