  • Patriots hold off Tell City

    TELL CITY—A few untimely mistakes hurt Tell City in a 23-25, 25-15, 18-25, 25-19, 15-4 PAC volleyball loss to Heritage Hills Tuesday.

    “It was probably the best match we’ve played,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “I felt like we hustled, set the right people, and the passing was there.”

  • Cannelton goes 0-3 in Orleans tourney

    ORLEANS—Cannelton won only one game in three matches as the Bulldogs went 0-3 in Orleans’ volleyball tourney Saturday.

    No statistics were available for the Bulldogs. They are usually kept by players on the bench, but the Bulldogs took only 12 players and played varsity and junior varsity matches at the same time, so every Bulldog player was always on the court.

    The Bulldogs went 1-2 in the junior varsity tourney.

    They beat Crawford County 25-8, 25-13, lost to Trinity Lutheran in straight sets, and lost to Orleans 17-25, 25-20, 15-14.

  • Inconsistency plagues Marksmen

    Fentress shot a 10 on the second hole but didn’t let it bother her. She came back with a birdie on the par-3 third hole.

    “She hit the ball very well today,” said Tell City Coach Jim Meek.

    Some other Tell City players who shot strong scores in their previous match had weak ones in this one, though.
