    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—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.”
