    But Cannelton’s Richard King was honored at the Bulldogs’ final home boys basketball game this season for keeping score for various Cannelton teams for 50 years, including the last 38 for the boys basketball team.
    His scorekeeping career started with football in the fall of 1968, when Paul Osborne coached that sport for the Bulldogs.

    INDIANAPOLIS—Jaden Houzanme placed second among middle school boys to lead Tell City to fifth place in the 35-team NASP middle school archery bullseye state tourney Saturday.
    The team took 24 archers, who shot their season-high score of 3,278.
    Castle North won with 3,375. Boonville was next with 3,342, followed by Jennings County with 3,297, and St. Benedict Cathedral  with 3,294.

  • Marksmen 2nd in PAC

    LINCOLN CITY—Tell City had six individual champions as it placed second in the PAC junior high wrestling tourney Saturday.
    Undefeated Southridge had seven champions and won the tourney with 321.5 points. Tell City scored 212.5 and Pike Central was third with 207.
    With the Raiders’ strong team in the field and Tell City having to forfeit in six of the 17 weight classes, Tell City Coach Chase Litherland had figured second place was about as well as the Marksmen could do.

  • Rangers could go long way

    Forest Park won its Class 2A boys basketball regional Saturday and will play Indianapolis Scecina in the Washington semistate Saturday at 3 p.m.
    The Rangers are 24-4 and Scecina is 19-9, so the Rangers should be favored.
    In fact the Rangers appear to have a good chance to win their third state title in 14 years.
    Local fans who saw the Rangers trail South Spencer most of the way in a first-round sectional game only to win by one point on a last-second shot might wonder how the Rangers could go so far.
