    TELL CITY—The good news for Tell City’s football team is the Marksmen return Co-PAC Most Valuable Player Elliott Brown from their first winning season (6-4) in seven years.
    The bad news is the only other returning starter on offense is fullback C.J. Rowe.
    There are nine seniors but only six returning lettermen on the 34-man roster.
    That’s why new coach Ronnie Robinson, one of the team’s former top assistants, said a lack of experience is his main concern.

    TELL CITY—Tell City boys soccer coach Austin Fischer doesn’t have to worry about any reserves grumbling about lack of playing time this season.
    He does have to worry about injuries, fatigue, bad grades, suspensions or anything else that could sideline players, though, as he has only 11—the number that start a game—on his roster.
    “We’re still looking for more,” Fischer said Thursday, “but our first game is Tuesday.

    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.

    Despite the graduation of two four-year starters who combined to make all-conference five times, Coach Becky Genet expects similar success this year.
