  • Tell City tennis team shorthanded again

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—For the second year in a row Tell City’s boys tennis team will be shorthanded in every match.
    High school tennis matches consist of three singles and two doubles matches, with no one allowed to play singles and doubles. Thus seven players are needed to fill every spot.
    Last year the Marksmen had just six players. And after graduating three, they have just five so far this year.
    Seniors Chandler Lacy, Jackson Ramsey and Blaze Brumfield return from last year’s 3-11 team.

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Cannelton’s volleyball team went through two coaches last year and finished 0-20.
    Now the Bulldogs have another coach, Julie Harris, assisted by Amanda Evans. But they are familiar with the players, having coached all of them in junior high.
    The Bulldogs also have more depth than usual. With 13 players on the roster, they plan to field a JV team for the first time in six years.
    They also have more experience with four seniors, including three who are fourth-year varsity players.

  • Good serving main asset for PC girls

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s volleyball team has strong serving but needs to improve on receiving serves, said Coach Becky Genet.
    “Our serving looks a lot better than last year, (when the Commodores finished 8-23)” she added. “We’re serving with power and we’re learning to place them better.”
    She said Ryann Lynch, Terissa Roark, Brooke Mullis and Addy Davis are probably the top servers.

  • Marksmen look stronger all around

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Strong serving and some experience in hitting and setting should help Tell City’s volleyball team improve on last year’s 14-15 record.
    Emma Kohnert, a 5-foot-11 senior, who has already made All-PAC twice, returns as a middle hitter after leading the Marksmen in kills with 374 and blocks with 97, including 71 solos.
    Sophomore Kammie Jo Hayes returns as the other middle hitter after finishing second on the team in kills with 180 and blocks with 36 as a freshman.
