  • Hayes takes 18th in state meet

    BLOOMINGTON—Tell City senior Kassidie Hayes couldn’t match last season’s success at the girls state track meet, as she finished 18th in the shot put Friday.
    She had thrown the shot 40 feet, 6 1/2 inches in the Evansville Central regional. That would have placed her seventh in the state, one notch higher than she finished last year.
    But her best throw Friday was 36 feet, 3 3/4 inches. Her other two throws went 36-1 1/4 and 35-4 3/4, and she did not make the finals.

    Formed in 1981 by ASA District Commissioner Don Foerster and Tell City Women’s Softball League President Terry Jarboe as a feeder system for the women’s league, the league switched to fastpitch in 2001 and essentially became a feeder system for local high school teams.
