    TELL CITY—Southridge, a team with a varied running attack, will visit Tell City for a PAC football game Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    Tell City Coach Ryan George said the Raiders have “good” team speed and Daniel Perez, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior, is their fastest back.
    Perez, who rushed for 994 yards last year, “is a good running back for them,” said George. “He’ll run inside and outside.”

  • New teams involved make MLB...

    When I did not pick the Boston Red Sox to win their division or even place second this year, someone asked a friend of mine if I was sick.
    Actually I was being practical, as after last September’s remarkable collapse and the off-season loss of star closer Jonathan Papelbon I feared it would be impossible for the Red Sox to recover this season.
    As it turns out, I still overrated them by picking them to finish third in the American League East.

  • Hayes, Marksmen block Tecumseh

    LYNNVILLE—McKenzie Hayes made a school-record eight solo blocks as Tell City defeated Tecumseh 25-12, 25-19, 25-13 in PAC volleyball Thursday.
    “She just dominated their best hitter,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “And Kassidie (Hayes) and Logan (Flannagan) played well along the net. They were touching everything, slowing it down to make it easier for our defense.”
    Tell City’s offense was also strong, with McKenzie Hayes making 18 kills, Flannagan nine, and Stori Beard five.
    Charissa Lahee had 29 assists.
