    Perry Central has hosted its Class 2A volleyball sectional the last eight years and Tell City has hosted the Class 2A girls basketball sectional every other year in the same span, but those streaks will come to an end this year.

    TELL CITY—Just as in football, Tell City hired a Tell City graduate to coach its varsity soccer team Tuesday.
    But Don Foerster did not star in soccer at Tell City, as the Marksmen did not offer that sport when he graduated in 1967.
    He said he learned the game from watching his sons play it, beginning more than 20 years ago when Anthony played on a North Spencer spring youth team where his teammates included current pro football quarterback Jay Cutler.

    This was probably his last football game, as he does not plan to play college football.
    He led Perry Central to a sectional title last fall.
