    FERDINAND—Spenser Deom joined a select company of Tell City baseball players by making the All-PAC baseball team for the third time Thursday.

  • Girls Softball League loses...

    Change seems to be the one constant in sports, and the Tell City Girls Softball League has seen its share of it since it was created.
    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.

  • Rebels have Marksmen’s number...

    Sports Editor

    ROCKPORT—South Spencer’s baseball team seemed to bring out the worst in Tell City this year,
    The Rebels beat Tell City 14-1 in the baseball sectional semifinals Saturday, the third time in as many meetings this season that they’ve dispatched the Marksmen by the 10-run rule.
    “They’re good - they’re really good,” said Tell City Coach Mark Wahl. “But let’s face it, we didn’t play very well.”

  • Brown, Pierrard place 3rd to...

    EVANSVILLE—Tell City sprinter Elliott Brown and Perry Central distance runner Aaron Pierrard each placed third in one event at the boys track regional Thursday to qualify for the state meet.
    Pierrard ran the 1600-meter run in 4:19.90, breaking his own school record and beating the previous regional record of 4:20.12 set by Terre Haute North’s Peter Davis last year.
    Two other runners also broke that record, though, with Castle’s Quentin Pierce winning in 4:19.44 and Borden’s Julien Magallanes placing second in 4:18.99.

  • Bulldogs fall to Wood Memorial

    DUBOIS—Cannelton had just two hits in a 17-3 first-round baseball sectional loss to Wood Memorial Thursday.
    Bryce Garrett went 2 for 2 to account for all the Bulldogs’ hits.
    They also drew six walks, though, and had two batters hit by pitches.
    That helped them score three runs in the third inning, and they still left the bases loaded that inning.
    “We should have scored five or six runs that inning,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “We just never could get on them.”
