  • COLUMN: Tell City will have several new coaches

    By LARRY GOFFINET
    Sports Editor

    Ryan George is starting just his second year as Tell City’s athletic director but is already getting to put his stamp on the school’s sports program by helping to hire most of its coaches.

    The school will again offer 18 varsity sports, assuming there are enough girls for a girls golf team (last year that team folded due to a lack of numbers), and George will have had a hand in hiring 10 of those teams’ coaches.
