    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—The first thing Tell City baseball coach Jason Wilkerson mentioned after his team’s 11-0 win over Perry Central Wednesday was that the Marksmen committed no errors and gave up no walks.
    Perry Central wasn’t as fortunate in those categories, as three walks and two Commodore throwing errors contributed to Tell City’s eight-run first inning.
    There was also a passed ball on a third strike that led to the throwing errors and produced two runs.

  • Vikings, Highlanders top Tell...

    POSEYVILLE—Walks and errors hurt Tell City’s baseball team at times, but the Marksmen usually outhit their opponents.
    However that was not the case in road losses Saturday and Tuesday.
    North Posey had 10 hits to Tell City’s eight in an 8-3 PAC win over the Marksmen Saturday.
    “That game was an anomaly,” said Tell City Coach Jason Wilkerson. “We didn’t get hits.”
