  • School board will move slowly on energy upgrades



    LEOPOLD – Like many Hoosier school campuses, Perry Central’s is a combination of old and new. The heart of the school was constructed in the second half of the 1960s while other areas were built in the 1980s and 1990s. The buildings serve students well but some are in need of newer, more efficient heating and cooling systems that, if installed, could save the district sizable sums of money.

    TELL CITY—With five lettermen and a talented group of freshmen, Tell City’s boys tennis team has a good chance to improve on last year’s 7-12 record.
    The Marksmen’s top returnee, senior Anjan Kashyab, has made All-PAC three times and was the top vote-getter on the team last year.
    He finished 12-0 in the regular season before losing to Castle star Brandon Davis in the sectional.
    Kashyab also made all-district and received honorable mention on the coaches’ all-state team.

  • Cannelton volleyball team rebuilding

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Only two of the seven players from Cannelton’s volleyball sectional roster last year return, so it’s not surprising that Bulldog Coach Felicia Myers called this “a rebuilding year.”
    The team again has only seven players and will have only six eligible for Tuesday’s season opener at Perry Central.
    None of the players is taller than 5-foot-7, so the team lacks height and depth as well as experience.
