  • TC has more depth; expects more goals

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—New Tell City boys soccer coach Pat Jarboe has some simple goals for his team this season: “We want to score more goals than we did last year and we want to win some games.”
    He might also have added: bring some stability to the team.
    The Marksmen have fielded a varsity team for five years and have won just four games in that span. Jarboe is their fourth coach.
    They went 0-12 and scored just one goal last season.

  • Marksman boys tennis team lacks usual depth

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Athletes generally flock to a chance to be part of a winning team.
    Tell City’s boys tennis team finished 10-4 in dual matches - its most victories in decades - and 18-6 overall last year, tying for first place in the nine-team PAC and placing second to perennial champion Castle in the sectional.
    So one would assume plenty of boys want to play for the team this year. But one would be wrong.
    Three doubles starters and the top reserve from last year’s team return.

    Jordyn Vogt is a fourth-year varsity player. The only other senior on the team, Tori Stowe, has never played on the team but “she’s really good,” said Chapman.
    Junior returnees are Nicole Harris, April Terry and Kelsey Marshall.

  • Perry Central team faces rebuilding year

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Last year was magical for Perry Central’s volleyball team.
    The Commodores won their first sectional title in nine years, won their first regional ever, played a close five-game match with Indianapolis Ritter in the semistate, and tied a school record with 27 victories.
    That many accomplishments would be hard to repeat under any circumstances but is even harder considering the Commodores return only one full-time varsity player, Maddie Hubert, and she is switching positions.

  • Tell City will feature depth in its spiking

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Strong hitting and serving should carry Tell City’s volleyball team to a winning season.
    Hit by injuries last year, the Marksmen finished the season 9-19, their first losing record in five years. But they return eight letter winners this year and have depth and experience at every position but setter.
