  • Balanced Marksmen aiming for PAC title

    TELL CITY - Coach Chris Hollinden thinks Tell City's boys track team has enough balance to win its first conference title in 14 years.

    The Marksmen have a deep team again, with 38 boys. It's even pretty balanced by classes, with 12 seniors and 13 freshmen.

    The Marksmen have climbed from seventh to third to second in the PAC in Hollinden's first three years as coach.

    Now Hollinden thinks they should be favored to win it, though they might not have as many individual standouts as they've had in some years.

    "I feel like we're going to be more rounded and stronger than we've been for several years, though there are still some areas we're not real strong in," said Genet, starting her 30th year at the team's helm.

    The Commodores have 26 girls on their roster, the same as last year. Sixteen have lettered in the past - seven more than last year.
