    TELL CITY—Tell City had only nine boys on its swim team last year but has nearly doubled that to 16 this year.
    There are eight seniors, one junior, five sophomores and two freshmen on the squad.
    The Marksmen also have more experience than last year. All nine from last year return and “both freshmen are kids that have swam age group for a long time, so even as freshmen they have some experience,” said Tell City Coach Stacy Marion.

  • Cold Commodores fall to Rangers

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central hit only 20.5 percent from the field in a 51-33 girls basketball loss to Forest Park Thursday.
    The Commodores trailed only 12-10 after one quarter but scored just five points in each of the next two quarters as they fell behind 37-20.
    “We played a pretty good first quarter but struggled in the second quarter because we had a lot of girls in foul trouble (four Commodores each picked up her second foul in the second quarter),” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.

    CANNELTON—A quicker team overall and more depth with the addition of six freshmen should mean a faster pace for Cannelton’s boys basketball team this year.
    “I’m planning on us playing fast,” said third-year coach Michael Snyder. “From top to bottom this is by far the most athletic team I’ve had.
    “And if we’re going to turn the ball over (a problem for the Bulldogs last year), we need to try to even those turnovers out defensively.

    LEOPOLD—With three returning starters and more height, Perry Central’s boys basketball team expects to improve on last year’s 4-20 record.
    “I think we have better size overall, with guys that can play inside and out offensively and defensively,” said Coach Matt Carter. “And we should have more depth, with eight or nine who are pretty even.”
    Senior guard Luke Hubert, junior guard Ty Mullis, and 6-foot-3 senior center Jacob Kelly are the returning starters.

    TELL CITY—Hard work and young talent could give Tell City’s boys basketball team an improved record this year.
    The Marksmen have no seniors or juniors on their roster but have good numbers with 15 sophomores and 12 freshmen.
    The sophomores and top three freshmen will form the varsity and JV rosters, with usually 12 dressing for the varsity game.

    TELL CITY—A high school basketball team that has three players who can hit from the perimeter and score on drives is usually tough to beat.
    Crawford County’s girls team proved that in a 57-34 win over Tell City Friday.
    Forward Jenny Jellison and guards Addy Simpson and Carley Allen combined for 48 points for the Wolfpack, with each scoring at least 15 points and each hitting at least one three-pointer.

  • Dauby on Colts’ academic all-...

    INDIANAPOLIS—Adam Dauby has become the fifth Perry Central football player to make the Indianapolis Colts’ High School Academic All-Star Team in the 18 years the team has been named.
    Dauby made this year’s 25-man team as a defensive back.
    A player’s grade-point average, class rank and scores on college aptitude tests are considered for this team, and he must be a senior and have played in 75 percent of his team’s games this season.
    Dauby is ranked No. 1 in Perry Central’s senior class with a 3.961 GPA.

    Harris hit three field goals and 6 of 8 free throws for 12 points that quarter. Davis added six points on two field goals and 2 of 7 free-throw shooting.
    Overall the Bulldogs hit 25 of 36 free throws, a high number to shoot in a road game.

  • Tell City wrestlers young

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—The bad news for Tell City’s wrestling team is there are only 12 boys on the roster.
    The good news is they are all in different weight classes, so the Marksmen can still fill 12 of the 14 weights.
    Two years ago they forfeited five weight classes and last year they forfeited four at the start of the season and six at the end due to injuries.

    CORYDON—Kammie Jo Hayes hit 80.0 percent from the field and scored 35 points in two games to lead Tell City to third place in the Battle of the First Capital girls basketball tourney Saturday.
    Hayes, a 5-foot-11, sophomore center, hit 9 of 10 from the field and scored 19 points in a 54-43 first-round loss to Henryville.
    “It was nice to see her step up,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “She made a couple of really nice moves. She hit one jump shot from just outside the lane and did a good job finishing on power moves inside.”
