  • Lyons named coach of year; McClintic makes all-district

    TELL CITY - Tell City's John Lyons has been named District 2 coach of the year and his point guard, Kara McClintic, was chosen all-district by the Hoosier Basketball Coaches Association.

    Lyons will be co-coach of the East team with District 1 coach of the year Jason Lane of Vincennes Lincoln in the HBCA's girls all-star game April 20 at the Evansville Sports Academy.

    But McClintic apparently will not get to play in the game due to a format change this year.

  • Rebels hold off Cannelton

    ROCKPORT - Cannelton didn't score a run or even get a hit Tuesday. But the Bulldogs' 4-0 baseball loss to defending Class 2A state champion South Spencer would still have to be considered a moral victory.

    The Bulldogs' game with South Spencer was rained out last year, but the previous two years they lost 49-0 and 41-1 to the Rebels.

    Tuesday's game was close because the Bulldogs improved their defense and got strong pitching from Stephen Lane and Tyler Aud.

    Lane pitched the first five innings, giving up six hits, three walks and only one earned run. He struck out three.

  • Marksmen searching for consistent 4th man

    TELL CITY - With three of their top five scorers from last year returning, Tell City's boys golf team hopes to improve on last year's 9-42 record.

    Senior Ian Reed is the Marksmen's No. 1 golfer after leading them in most meets last year, including the PAC tourney and the sectional.

    Junior Corey Young was the team's fifth man in both those tourneys last year but appears to be the No. 2 man now, said Coach Jim Meek.

    Sandage won the 1600 run in 4:49.88 and the 3200 in 10:59.33.

    Dalton Sweeney took the 800 in 2:07.95 as the Marksmen won all three of the distance races.

    "In the three distance races we outscored them 25-2," noted Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden. "That was the difference in the meet."

  • Huber leads PC to victory

    RAMSEY - Nick Huber won three individual events and a relay as Perry Central won a boys triangular track meet Tuesday.

    Perry Central scored 69 points, Paoli 46, and North Harrison 41.

    Huber won the 110-meter high hurdles in 16.09 seconds despite running into a strong headwind.

    He won the 300 intermediate hurdles in 42.5 and took the high jump by clearing 6 feet, 3 inches.

    He teamed with Michael Ernst, Zach Hagedorn and Todd Gehlhausen to win the 1600 relay in 3:41.

    Ernst won the 800 run in 2:11.

    Training wheels offered Abby Clark, 4, a little extra balance and security Monday evening in the 900 block of Main Street.

  • Treats will entice community to raise United Way funds

    PERRY COUNTY - United Way volunteers will soon visit small businesses throughout the county during the annual Dogwood Festival with doughnuts in hand as they remind the community to "Do-Nut Forget Those Less Fortunate."

    Volunteers will help small businesses in the area raise funds for the United Way of Perry County. Campaign chairwoman Rita Mahoney and co-chair Debbie Elder are starting the 2008 campaign with a special small-business blitz this spring.

  • Main Street additions

    Green Thumb Landscaping employees Gabriel Zavala, Danny Wright and Jason Felker maneuver a new willow oak tree into place in the 700 block of Main Street last week. The new trees were the first to be planted in a four-block area currently undergoing sidewalk improvements under a grant-funded project. Trees will be planted only on the west side of the 700 block to keep growing oaks from blocking the view of City Hall. Approximately 30 new trees will be planted on both sides of Main Street in the 400, 500 and 600 blocks.
