  • Balanced spiking attack will help Tell City team

    TELL CITY—Strong hitting at every position could propel Tell City’s volleyball team to a winning season.

    The Marksmen finished 14-14 last season after posting a school-record 24 wins the previous year. But they return four senior hitters who lettered for both those teams and they have some talented underclassmen as well.

    Sometimes they have had one or two good hitters and opposing defenses would key on them. But this year “we’ve got hitters in every spot that I feel comfortable going to,” said fourth-year Tell City coach Dalonda Hayes.

  • Perry Central team to depend on strong hitting, good serving

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s volleyball team hopes to improve its passing and setting to rebound from last year’s 5-30 record.

    The Commodores return two strong hitters in Jessica Huber and Megan Hedinger. “And we serve well,” said Coach Becky Genet.

    “Basically we’re working on our passing and improving our setting,” added Genet. “We need to become more consistent.”

    The Commodores will have more experience in those areas. Setters Sloan Harpenau and Tessa Lynch return from last year’s starting lineup.

  • With 8 seniors, Bulldogs banking on experience

    CANNELTON—With eight seniors and 16 players on the roster, Cannelton’s volleyball team has its most experience and depth in several years.

    Third-year coach Heather Garrison thinks defense is the Bulldogs’ strongest suit but thinks they are stronger in most areas than the last two years.

    But she said one of their biggest obstacles may be “overcoming our past,” as they seem to lack confidence that they can win after going 2-18 last year and not winning more than three matches in any of the last five years.
