    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Rebuilding may not be a strong enough term for what Tell City is doing in girls golf this season, as the Marksmen are basically building a team from scratch.
    They started last season with four girls, the minimum required for a team score, but canceled the rest of the season after only one match because only two girls remained on the team.
    Only one of those two, Jenny Hess, returns this year. But new coach Amber Thomas has seven girls on the team.

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Cannelton returns four of its seven players from last year’s 2-17 volleyball team but still has an inexperienced squad.
    There are 10 girls on the team, including two seniors and two juniors. But one senior and one junior have not played high school volleyball before. The other senior and other junior have played only one year.
    Add two sophomores and four freshmen and the team’s lack of experience is apparent.
