    BOONVILLE – Aided by a critical fifth-inning error, Rockport was able to claim a 40th Legion Baseball sectional title Saturday, outlasting a surprisingly competitive Boonville team 10-7 in the championship round.

    Boonville, who reached the tourney’s double-elimination final following a 7-6, ninth-inning come-from-behind victory over Jasper earlier in the afternoon, scored four times in the top of the fifth inning to pull ahead 6-4.

    Ryan George is starting just his second year as Tell City’s athletic director but is already getting to put his stamp on the school’s sports program by helping to hire most of its coaches.

    The school will again offer 18 varsity sports, assuming there are enough girls for a girls golf team (last year that team folded due to a lack of numbers), and George will have had a hand in hiring 10 of those teams’ coaches.
