  • Wildcats hold off Tell City

    TELL CITY—Mater Dei made more kills than Tell City to beat the Marksmen 26-24, 25-23, 25-22 in volleyball Thursday.

    “It was probably the best game we’ve played all year hustle-wise,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “And we played a well rounded game.

    “We’ve got to work on a couple rotations, though. Where we lost is when we stopped attacking.”

    She said some of the Marksman hitters would resort to dinking too much after getting a spike or two blocked.

  • Tell City business destroyed by fire

    TELL CITY - A pre-dawn fire destroyed a business on Tell City's north side Wednesday, closing Indiana 66 for more than five hours and sending up a plume of smoke that lingered after sunrise.

    Tell City firefighters were called to Tri-State Diesel and Automotive Center at 1:17 a.m. after a police-department dispatcher received calls that flames were visible from the metal-clad building in the 1800 block of Main Street. Indiana 66 shares its name with Main Street inside city limits north of Payne Street.

  • Perry Central’s boys dominate Jasper meet

  • Tell City to host Vikings

    TELL CITY—Confidence might be the main thing Tell City needs to compete with North Posey in the Marksmen’s football homecoming game Friday at 7:30 p.m.
