  • Gunn honorable mention all-state

    INDIANAPOLIS — Tell City sophomore Trent Gunn received honorable mention on the coaches' Class 2A baseball all-state team released last week.

    "Only three third basemen made the final ballot, and Trent was on the ballot ahead of players like Justin Hurst from Forest Park, who was a senior that had an incredible year," said Tell City Coach Mark Wahl.

    Gunn hit .463 with five home runs and 40 runs batted in. He also hit 10 doubles and four triples.

    He broke the school single-season record for most RBIs of 34 set by Larry Parker in 1983.

  • Tell City second at Corydon

    TELL CITY - Spenser Beard hit .667 with three home runs as Tell City's age-12 all-stars placed second in an eight-team Little League all-star tourney June 27-28.

    In pool play Tell City lost to the Sticks, a travel team based in Floyds Knobs but including one player from Michigan, 7-2 and beat Corydon 13-8.

    In the single-elimination bracket Tell City beat Tell City's 11-year-olds 12-2 and shut out Charlestown 3-0 to reach the championship game.

    C.J. Rowe and Beard combined to pitch a no-hitter against Charlestown, striking out 10. Each pitched three innings.

    This was the third time he has been named to the all-academic team.

    Harpenau finished fourth in Purdue school history in the hammer throw with his personal best of 211 feet, 8 inches. He was fifth in school history in the 35-pound weight throw with a 66-foot-8 throw.

  • Kiwanis wins regular season by...

    TELL CITY—Kiwanis pounded out 11 hits to beat Coca-Cola 9-5 in its final regular-season Babe Ruth baseball game Monday.

    Coca-Cola tied the game 3-3 with three runs in the bottom of the third inning on an error, two walks, a hit batsman, and a two-run single to left field by Chris Schaefer.

    Brian Arnold gave Kiwanis the lead for good, though, with a run in the bottom of the fourth.

    Kids with Claise thus finished the season undefeated, winning the regular-season title with an 11-0 record and going 2-0 in the single-elimination playoff tourney.

    Celebrations, the regular-season runner-up with a 7-4 record, gave Kids with Claise everything they could handle in Tuesday’s game, though.

  • Froehlich places 3rd, Weiss 4th...

    ORLANDO, Fla.—Tell City Wrestling Club members Dylan Froehlich and Jeff Weiss earned medals for their performances with Hoosier Elite in the AAU national wrestling tourney June 23-26.

    Hoosier Elite wrestled 13 matches in the tourney and finished 30th among 38 teams in the all-star division.

    Though it was a team competition, individual records were also kept to determine the top finishers in each weight class.

    Froehlich, who will be a senior at Tell City, went 11-2 with five pins to place third and earn the bronze medal in the 215-pound weight class.

  • Chinn, Goffinet help State all-...

    NEW CASTLE - Recent Tell City graduates Andy Chinn and Lauren Goffinet held their own with players from throughout the state as they helped their teams win in the first Indiana Class Basketball All-Star Classic Saturday.

    The Classic featured two boys and two girls games, with players from the Indianapolis Metro Area taking on players from the rest of the state.

    One game for each gender featured stars from Class A and 2A schools and the other featured players from Class 3A and 4A schools.

  • Classic good idea but still...

    Like any first-year project, the Indiana Class Basketball All-Star Classic needs some fine tuning. But I like the basic concept behind it and think it will gain more popularity with players and fans in future years.

    One thing I like is it is virtually the only all-star classic in which half the players must come from schools in the state's two smallest enrollment classes.

    Thus a lot of players from smaller schools who got overlooked by other all-star games got to play in this one.
