  • Tell Ctiy girls 3rd in triangular

    JASPER—Tell City has 19 athletes on its girls track team this year, which is more than usual. But that pales in comparison to Castle’s 70.

    So predictably Castle dominated a triangular meet Thursday, winning with 101 points. Jasper scored 66 and Tell City 12.

    “Castle will probably win the track regional this year—they’re that good,” said Tell City Coach Katie Chinn. “And we only ran most of our girls in one (individual) event because it was our third meet in eight days.”
