    TELL CITY—Castle has won this area’s boys tennis sectional 20 years in a row, but Tell City is taking aim at ending that streak this season.
    The Marksmen have won nine dual matches each of the last two years, going 9-5 last year and winning a tourney at Heritage Hills. They lost to Castle 4-1 in the sectional championship match.
    The last time they won more than nine dual matches was 2002, but that is one of their goals this year.

    CANNELTON—Cannelton returns only two starters from last year’s 2-22 volleyball team, but Coach Ashley Chapman is counting on quickness and strong digging to lead to improvement.
    Chapman, who was the team’s assistant coach the last two years, had only six players two weeks ago but is up to nine now, though only eight will have enough practices in to be eligible for Tuesday’s season opener.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s volleyball team had two All-PAC hitters last year and knew it would lose one to graduation.
    But the other one, 6-foot Kassidie Hayes who led the team in kills and blocks last year, was scheduled to return until she tore an anterior cruciate ligament in a summer AAU tourney.
    Her loss will be felt, but Coach Dalonda Hayes still thinks the Marksmen have a strong enough frontline to contend for the PAC title.
