  • New Tell City Hall of Famers set amazingly durable records

    Those who know me well will tell you I have a great memory for sports statistics. But even I can’t remember all the important statistics for the thousands of athletes in dozens of sports that I have covered in several decades on this job.
    So researching the statistics of Tell City High School Athletic Hall of Fame candidates each year always produces some surprises for me.
    Danny Talley, Laura McClintic James, and the late Joe Hagedorn will be inducted into the Hall of Fame Saturday at 5:30 p.m. in the school’s auditorium.

    “We came out flat in the first half again,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “Then we scored a little bit in the third quarter (a game-high 12 points) and got the lead.”
    Melissa Clausen, Cannelton’s senior point guard, rolled an ankle in the third quarter.

  • Perry Central upsets Rams

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central held Paoli to 5 of 26 three-point shooting and beat the Rams 55-49 in PLAC girls basketball Tuesday.
    “I just thought our defense really slowed them down and took them out of their rhythm  tonight,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.
    “We played a zone because we really wanted to stop their penetration inside. They’re a really quick team.
    “We played the way I thought we could play all year.”
    Paoli entered the game with an 11-3 record and ranked No. 10 in the state in Class 2A.
