    CANNELTON—New coach Ashley Schroer inherits a Cannelton softball team that hasn’t won a game since 2012.
    The Bulldogs went 0-7 in 2013, did not have enough healthy players to field a team in 2014, and went 0-8 last year.
    But they do have six starters returning from last year and five seniors on the team.

    TELL CITY—Kenton Crews’ control pitching and a version of the hidden-ball trick helped Heritage Hills edge Tell City 5-4 in PAC baseball Tuesday.
    The Patriots had only three hits and struck out 13 times. They also committed five errors.
    But they still found a way to win as Crews walked only one while pitching a complete game. He struck out five and threw only 95 pitches.

    TELL CITY—The good news for Tell City’s boys golf team this year is its numbers are up to seven, the most since 2011.
    The bad news is the experience level is down. The Marksmen had two boys with varsity experience last year and have just one, junior Lucas Montgomery, this year. And he has played only a few varsity matches.
    The rest of the team are freshmen: Spencer Fest, Marcus Fortwendel, Josh Gaynor, Ethan Maffia, Evan Spear and Griffin Taylor.
