  • Tell City gets first victory

    PETERSBURG—Tell City won three matches in straight sets to beat Pike Central 4-1 in PAC girls tennis Saturday.
    The Marksmen earned their first win of the season despite the fact “we weren’t able to practice the two days previous to the match and had a short rain delay before the match, which doesn’t seem to be ideal,” said Tell City Coach Nick Weyer.
    Madilyn Hoskinson beat Meredith Benson 6-3, 6-3 in No. 1 and Baylie Peter defeated Shelby Vaughn 6-1, 6-2 in No. 2 for Tell City’s singles victories.

    Last year Kohnert became only the fourth Tell City athlete to make all-conference in three sports in one school year.
