David Teague, a senior competing in the 132-pound weight class, was Tell City’s best wrestler this season.
He was the only one to qualify for the regional and semistate and had compiled a 23-8 record before Saturday’s semistate.
Meanwhile Tell City had to have freshmen fill the 220- and 285-pound weight classes, which are generally dominated by seniors, and had no one to put in the 195-pound class.
So maybe the Marksmen should have moved Teague up to one of those weight classes.
TELL CITY—At the end of the year, the riders and owners of horses at NRG Farm celebrated a very successful show season.
They performed at shows in Indianapolis, Springfield, Ohio, Owensboro, Ky., Elizabethtown, Ky., and Priceville, Ala.

LINCOLN CITY—Playing with PAC title implications, Tell City had difficulties against Heritage Hills’ zone defense, which led to a Patriots’ 41-40 win in boys basketball Friday.
Heritage Hills led 11-7 at the end of the first quarter and 21-12 late in the second quarter, and Tell City Coach Matt Lynch couldn’t understand why his team was sluggish.
LEOPOLD—Perry Central will have a new head volleyball coach next fall, but there will still be some continuity for the team.
Melissa James, who was an assistant coach to retiring Becky Genet the last 19 years, was selected the new head coach by the school board last Monday.
James said she sought the position because “I coached with Mrs. Genet a long time, I just love the sport of volleyball, and I didn’t feel ready to give it up.”
EVANSVILLE—Dawson Combest of Columbus East defeated Tell City’s David Teague 9-1 in a 132-pound first-round semistate wrestling match Saturday.
Teague thus ended his senior season with a 23-9 record.
Combest went on to win the semistate, beating Donald Campbell of Ben Davis in the finals.
Brownsburg won the team title with 148.5 points.
Fifty-four teams were represented by at least one wrestler at the semistate, which was held at the Ford Center.
Each team will still be guaranteed three games, but the PSC Holiday Classic boys basketball tourney will be completed in two days next winter.
North Harrison, an original member of the tourney that has been absent several years, will return to it next season, taking the spot that Indiana Math & Science Academy filled this year after Forest Park withdrew from the tourney last spring.
