  • Sectional one of most wide open...

    I told several people last year that Tell City’s boys basketball team would start five sophomores this year and would win the sectional two years from now when they are seniors.
    The part about the Marksmen starting five sophomores has come true.
    Even with such a young team, they have achieved at a level a year or two ahead of what most expected, as they enter this week’s sectional with a 13-10 record, their best in nine years.
    Can they continue to move ahead of schedule and win the sectional this week instead of two years from now?
