  • Shorthanded Tell City boys fall to Spencer County teams

    TELL CITY—Short-handed Tell City won four events but lost to Heritage Hills 125-28 in boys swimming Thursday.
    With only five boys on the team, the Marksmen are usually badly outnumbered by their opponents. But this week was even worse as they had two boys sidelined due to sickness.
    Thus they had only three boys competing and couldn’t even enter any relay, which requires four boys.
    Still they had some good performances.
    Aaron Vincent won the 100-yard freestyle in 1:01.15 and the 100 backstroke in 1:12.95.

    Mason Waninger had one of the most exciting matches for Tell City in the 106-pound weight class.

  • Tell City girls outswim Heritage Hills

    He said it was hard to make any assumptions from this meet because Heritage Hills was shorthanded.

    “I felt like we got a lot of good looks early on,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. “We got the ball into Quinn (Duke)—we just couldn’t get anything to drop.”
