  • Strong wrestlers in same weights...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—With five seniors and two juniors, Tell City’s wrestling team has more upperclassmen than last year.
    But there are only 16 boys on the roster, two fewer than last year. And because several are about the same weight, the Marksmen still won’t be able to fill all 14 weight classes.
    “We’ve got four, maybe five open weight classes,” Tell City Coach Neal Stahly said Monday.

  • Kohnert leads Tell City to win...

    LANESVILLE—Emma Kohnert had 15 points and 10 rebounds as Tell City beat Lanesville 37-29 in girls basketball Saturday.
    “It was a defensive battle again,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “We didn’t shoot the ball real well again.”
    The Marksmen hit 35.7 percent from the field and 46.7 percent at the free-throw line.
    They improved their ball-handling, though, cutting their turnovers from 19 the previous night to 15.

  • PC’s rebounding, quickness too...

    Sports Editor

    REO—Perry Central used strong rebounding and fast breaks to beat South Spencer 64-39 in girls basketball Tuesday.
    The Commodores opened with a full-court press and used their quick hands to make several steals, which they turned into layups.
    Senior guard Brittany Parker entered the game needing just two steals to break Perry Central’s career record of 196 set by 1991 graduate Cindy Etienne.

  • Arnold takes reins of Tell City’...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Greg Arnold was hired as Tell City’s boys basketball coach Sept. 9, so he is obviously getting a later start than most coaches.
    Years ago Indiana high school coaches couldn’t work with their teams during the summer but all teams started practice Oct. 15.
    Now coaches can work with and coach their team in games for two months during the summer but are not allowed to start regular practices until Nov. 10.

  • Like Tell City, Loogootee also...

    In the late 1970s Tell City and Loogootee had probably the most stable boys basketball coaching situations in the state.
    Loogootee’s Jack Butcher had the highest coaching salary in the state and Tell City’s Bob Lochmueller had the second highest salary, and there was a good reason they were well paid.
    Butcher was in the midst of a 45-year run as Loogootee’s coach that would see him finish with a state-record 806 career victories.

  • Snyder returns to alma mater to...

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Michael Snyder was a starting guard for Cannelton’s 1998 Class A boys basketball sectional championship team.
    That was the Bulldogs’ only sectional title in the last 62 years, though, so the odds are against their winning another title soon.
    So what was the main reason Snyder wanted the job as the Bulldogs’ new coach?

  • Parker propels Perry Central...

    LEOPOLD—Brittany Parker had 22 points, nine rebounds, six steals and four assists as Perry Central beat Corydon 58-41 in girls basketball Friday.
    She hit 8 of 16 shots from the field and 5 of 7 free throws.
    While pleased with Parker’s big game, Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume said, “It was a team effort tonight.
    “We went 10 deep tonight and they all came out and played really hard.

  • Tell City stops Cannelton

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Strong defense allowed Tell City to overcome its poor shooting and beat Cannelton 44-12 in girls basketball Friday.
    The Marksmen hit only 32.3 percent from the field, missing several open shots, including some in the lane. And they hit only 4 of 16 free throws.
    But they held Cannelton to 21.1 percent field-goal shooting. And they made 26 steals and forced 42 turnovers overall without using a full-court press.

  • Hagedorn, McClintic, Talley...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Two football and track stars and a girls basketball and volleyball star were elected to Tell City High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame Thursday.
