    But there are only 16 boys on the roster, two fewer than last year. And because several are about the same weight, the Marksmen still won’t be able to fill all 14 weight classes.
    “We’ve got four, maybe five open weight classes,” Tell City Coach Neal Stahly said Monday.

    They improved their ball-handling, though, cutting their turnovers from 19 the previous night to 15.

    Guest Columnist

    Talking with friends the other day about the Boy Scouts brought back a stream of fond memories. I was in scouting for eight years; Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Explorers, from 8 to 16, some of the best years of my life. I lived for the camping trips and couldn’t get enough of swimming, canoeing, fishing and all aspects of the outdoor life.
