  • SOCCER: TELL CITY—Tell City’s...

    It was the first tie in girls soccer at Tell City and Claire Franzman scored the team’s first goal against a varsity opponent. Tell City began competing in varsity girls soccer last season.

    “We were excited to score in a regular game,” Tell City Coach Kelsey Henrickson said. “We made some good passes and moved the ball down the field.”

    Maddie Rogers got the assist on Franzman’s goal.

    Henrickson is hopeful this gives validation to her team about the future.

    TELL CITY—Tell City had some great boys cross country teams in the 1970s but is currently on its hottest streak ever.

    The Marksmen have won four consecutive PAC titles, five consecutive sectionals and three consecutive regionals.

    They placed second in their semistate the last two years and in the top 10 in the state meet both years, capped by a best ever eighth-place finish last year.

  • Davis serves PC to win over...

    LEOPOLD—Addy Davis served 12 points, including nine aces, as Perry Central beat Cannelton 25-11, 25-21, 25-23 in volleyball Tuesday.

    Perry Central led only 15-10 in the first game before a Cannelton side out gave the Commodores a point.

    Davis then served seven consecutive points to give the Commodores a safe 23-10 lead.

    After the Bulldogs stopped her streak, Perry Central’s Morgan Judy made a kill to get the ball back for the Commodores.

    Freshman Kendra Gehlhausen then served an ace for the final point of the game.

  • Perry Central’s girls could vie...

    LEOPOLD—A talented freshman has Perry Central’s girls cross country team thinking it can win the PLAC this year.

    Freshman Jaelynn Etienne “is definitely coming in at No. 1 right now,” said Coach Jason Barnett.

    Her father, Glenn Etienne, won the boys semistate as a senior in 1990. And girls often have their best season as freshmen.

    Macey Emmons, Etienne’s second cousin, was Perry Central’s No. 1 runner as a freshman and is No. 2 now as a senior.

  • Young PC boys team could win...



    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s boys cross country team placed eighth in the 11-team Jasper sectional last year, but Coach Jason Barnett expects a better performance this year with a young team.

    There are no seniors and five freshmen on the Commodores’ 10-man roster.

  • Young TC girls expect best team...

    TELL CITY—A second strong freshman class in a row could help Tell City have its best girls cross country team in several years.

    Last year freshman Elena Hagedorn was the team’s Most Valuable Runner and made All-PAC by placing 10th in the conference meet.

    Another freshman, Hayley Wroe, led the team at times before suffering a season-ending injury early last season.

    Jill Kaiser, Molly McCallister and Kaylee Dixon lead this year’s freshman class and have also led the team in summer workouts.
