  • Two Perry Central opponents...

    Perry Central’s football team finished with a 5-5 record this year, which nearly everyone connected with the team called a disappointment.
    That tied the Commodores’ worst record in the last 17 years (the 1998 team also went 5-5).
    But it would have been considered great 30 years ago, when the Commodores completed back-to-back winless seasons.
    One of the reasons the Commodores’ record wasn’t quite as good as they had hoped this year, though, was they played a really strong schedule.

  • Marksmen sink Rebels

    TELL CITY—Tell City won all 11 events to rout South Spencer 114-36 in girls swimming Tuesday.

    Loren Braunecker and Amanda Wagner each won two individual events for the Marksmen.
    Braunecker took the 200-yard freestyle in 2:23.51 and the 500 free in 6:29.09.
    Wagner won the 200 individual medley in 2:24.38 and the 100 breaststroke in 1:11.33.

  • Turnovers plague Perry Central...

    CORYDON—Perry Central committed 34 turnovers in a 55-29 season-opening girls basketball loss Saturday.
    “We broke their press most of the time, but we threw it away once we got down,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “We didn’t attack their pressure once we got across halfcourt.
    “They’re pretty good, and we just played OK in spurts.”

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City probably won’t dominate the PAC girls swim meet the way it did last year. But Coach Mike Page thinks the Marksmen have a chance to win it for the fourth year in a row.
    With a veteran team the Marksmen won 11 of 12 events in the PAC last year. This year they have nine letter winners returning, six fewer than last year.
    There are six seniors and six freshmen on the 16-girl roster.

  • Cannelton girls team has 5...

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—As usual depth is a concern for Cannelton’s girls basketball team, but experience is not.
    The Bulldogs have just eight players on their roster but they return five of their six letter winners from last year’s 9-11 team. Another player played two years ago.
    “I think our experience is going to be our main strength,” said Coach Mike Garrett. “We have three girls who’ve started for four years, and Mikah (Hemmings) and Allicyn (Garrett) started last year.”
