  • Rain may stop Marksmen’s shot at baseball win record

    Besides delaying farm crops, all the rain we have had this spring may cost Tell City’s baseball team a chance to break the school record for most victories in a season.
    Tell City is 10-2 and ranked fifth in the state in Class 2A.
    The 1997 Marksmen also started 10-2 en route to finishing with a school-record 21 wins.
    That team got 26 of its 28 scheduled regular-season games in (one that was canceled was against Bosse, which was usually an easy win in those days), going 17-9.
