  • Memorial defeats Marksmen

    TELL CITY—Tell City couldn’t get its offense going in the second and third games and lost to Evansville Memorial 15-16, 25-8, 25-12 in volleyball Tuesday.
    “They were good,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “They had a senior (Emily Sullivan) who’s about 6-1 or 6-2 and has signed with North Carolina for basketball, but she could’ve played (college) volleyball too.
    “The first game I thought we played pretty well - we were passing well and picking up their hits.

  • Tell City wins frosh-soph race

    ZIONSVILLE—With all but one of Tell City’s boys cross country runners being freshmen or sophomores, the Marksmen could be expected to do well in a freshman-sophomore race.
    But winning a race for those classes is particularly impressive when running against two of the top 15 teams in the state.
    That was the case Saturday, as Tell City took the freshman-sophomore race in the Zionsville invitational with 43 points, seven ahead of the host team.

    TELL CITY—Tell City forced six turnovers to beat Perry Central 20-0 in JV football Monday.
    Dustin Hunt intercepted two passes and Trey Mucker and Preston Hendershot each picked off one.
    Hunt and Hendershot each also recovered a fumble, with the latter coming after teammate Zach Butler forced the fumble.
    Hunt’s fumble recovery early set the tone for the game, as Perry Central had driven to the Tell City 2-yard line before losing it.

  • Perry Central to visit Forest...

    Sports Editor

    FERDINAND—Perry Central will try to stop Forest Park’s power running game when they meet in football Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    The Rangers went 1-9 last year and lost their season opener 63-0 to Gibson Southern Friday. But Gibson Southern is one of the top Class 3A teams in the state, so that game may not be indicative of how good the Rangers are.

  • Heritage Hills’ versatile...

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s defense will have to be ready for about anything against Heritage Hills’ versatile offense in PAC football Friday at 7 p.m.
    “They’re a typical Heritage Hills team,” said Tell City Coach Ronnie Robinson. “They get in the (wish)bone and run a heavy front line - they’ll run blasts, iso’s and sweeps.”

  • Tell City boys win 26-team meet

    OWENSBORO, Ky.—All five Tell City scorers placed in the top 24 as the Marksmen won the 26-team Indiana-Kentucky Border Clash boys cross country meet Tuesday.
    The Marksmen scored 64 points to beat runner-up Daviess County by 36.

    Alex Lawalin shot 58 to lead Tell City’s balanced scoring.
    Samantha Meserve shot 59, Halee Lamb 62, and Mary Grace Alvey 64 to complete the Marksmen’s scoring.

  • Best-of-5 matches don’t work

    I’ve mentioned this before, but the powers-that-be haven’t listened yet, so I’m saying it again: Best-of-five matches for high school volleyball don’t work.
    At one time high school matches were best-of-three, with 15 points the winning total for each game.
    Teams could score only on their serving turns - not when they forced side outs by the other team.

  • Cannelton falls to Eagles in...

    LANESVILLE—Bad first passes hurt Cannelton in a 25-10, 25-13, 25-15 volleyball loss to Lanesville Thursday.
    “We absolutely did not get the ball to the setter,” said Cannelton Coach Ashley Chapman.
    But she added that overall “we’re getting better.”
    Nicole Harris led Bulldog hitters with three kills. April Terry and Caressa Sloss each added two.
    Harris served four points, including one ace, and made one dig. Jordyn Vogt made one block.
    Cannelton, 0-2, will visit Springs Valley Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
