  • Beard climbing Tell City’s...

    Before Braeden Beard’s freshman basketball season started, someone told me that then Tell City Coach Greg Arnold had said Beard would break Tell City’s record for most career rebounds.
    I thought that sounded unlikely, as Steve Lochmueller grabbed 948 rebounds in his Tell City varsity career and averaged 17.0 rebounds per game as a senior in 1970-71.
    But at the end of his sophomore season Beard is now more than halfway to Lochmueller’s record.
    He is also climbing the Marksmen’s chart for best rebounding average in a single season.
