    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys track team has won four sectionals, including two in the last four years.
    But the Marksmen have never won consecutive sectionals, something they think they have a good chance to do this year.
    They graduated 11 seniors, including their top throwers and hurdler and some key distance runners, from last year’s team that was undefeated until placing second in the regional to Harrison.

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—After last season’s 0-19 record, “there’s nowhere to go but up,” said Tell City girls softball coach Maggie Schuetter.
    Several young players will help the Marksmen aim in that direction, as there are nine freshmen on the 16-girl roster.
    There are only four seniors, including one transfer student and one who did not play last year. Only four players return from last year’s team.

  • Commodores feature experienced outfield

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls softball team will have a whole new infield and new pitcher as it tries to win its third consecutive PLAC title this year.
    Miranda Claise, who made All-PLAC the last two years as a pitcher, is now pitching for Lincoln Trail College.
    The three girls vying to replace her don’t have her velocity or variety of pitches yet. So more balls may be put in play against them and hit to the outfield.
