    FERDINAND—Mater Dei’s come-from-behind win in the first game gave it the momentum to beat Tell City 26-24, 25-13, 25-23 for the Forest Park volleyball sectional title Saturday.
    The first game was close throughout, but Tell City tied it 23-23 on a kill by Kammie Jo Hayes.
    Hayes then served the go-ahead point with the help of a soft kill by Emma Kohnert.
    Hayes then served for game point, but Mater Dei eventually won that point.

    FERDINAND—Tell City hitters Emma Kohnert and Kammie Jo Hayes were named to the All-PAC volleyball team in voting by conference coaches Monday.
    Kohnert, a 5-foot-11 senior, made the team for the third year in a row.
    She led the Marksmen in kills with 347 and blocks with 100, including 69 solos.
    She made kills on 36.3 percent of her hits. Her hitting percentage (kills minus errors, divided by total attempts) was 24.2 percent.

  • New conference would be boon to...

    With Tell City searching for more competitive balance and the Pocket Athletic Conference possibly adding more Class 3A schools, it may no longer be a good fit for the Marksmen.
    But the Patoka Lake Athletic Conference, which does not offer several sports Tell City has, probably is also not a good fit - and there is no guarantee Tell City would be accepted if it did seek to join the PLAC.
    So, as I promised last week, I have come up with a proposal for a new conference that Tell City and nine other area schools should form.

    Sports Editor

    FERDINAND—For most of Thursday’s volleyball sectional semifinal match between Tell City and Forest Park, it didn’t look like a 19-9 team playing a 1-27 team.
    But it did in the fourth game as Tell City jumped to a 10-0 lead and finally put the pesky Rangers away 25-15, 25-22, 21-25, 25-5.
    Tell City was scheduled to play Mater Dei in the championship match Saturday.
    The Marksmen trailed most of the second game Thursday and never led in the third game.
