    LINCOLN CITY—Tell City scored seven pins to beat Heritage Hills 72-39 in junior high wrestling Thursday.

    Jagger Hudson, Grant Bolin, Justin Alvarez, Spenser Beard, C.J. Rowe, Cody Osborne and Nick Bolin earned the pins for the Archers.

    Osborne scored his fastest, in just 20 seconds.

    The Archers might have won by an even larger margin but “our forfeits did not match up that well, costing us some points,” said Tell City Coach Josh Casebolt.

  • Patriots' depth edges...

    LINCOLN CITY—Tell City won 8 of 13 events but finished second in a junior high boys triangular swim meet Thursday.

    The Archers beat South Spencer but lost to Heritage Hills by one point.

    “Heritage Hills was able to enter two relays in the 200 and 400 freestyle relays where we barely have enough boys to fill all three relays,” said Tell City Coach Lewis Anderson.

    Tell City’s Trent Rainey won the 50- and 100-yard freestyles for Tell City in 29.42 seconds and 1:10.42, respectively.

  • TC team wins weightlifting title

    REO—Led by two individual champions, Tell City won the junior-senior division of the 17th annual Southern Indiana bench press & squat competition at South Spencer Feb. 27.

    “We’ve never won it before,” noted Tell City football defensive coordinator Ron Robinson, who helps supervise Tell City’s weightlifting program.

    More than 20 schools from southern Indiana and western Kentucky competed.

     Tell City senior Kyle Osborne won the 216-pounds-and-over individual title with a 300-pound bench press and 485-pound squat.

  • Forest Park nips PC in last...

    HUNTINGBURG—Trent Theising hit a 12-foot shot with 2.4 seconds left to lift Forest Park past Perry Central 40-39 in the first round of the  Class 2A boys basketball sectional Tuesday.

    Forest Park led 38-36 with 23.6 seconds left and had a chance to virtually ice the victory as Nathan Bromm went to the free-throw line for one shot plus the bonus.

    He missed the first shot, though, and Perry Central rebounded.

    Jacob Schwartz scored a three-point play on a driving five-foot shot and free throw to put the Commodores ahead 39-38 with 0:13 left.

  • Rappites top Bulldogs

    OAKLAND CITY—Cannelton played well, but missed scoring opportunities cost the Bulldogs a chance at victory in a 63-55 loss to New Harmony in the first round of the Class A boys basketball sectional Tuesday.

    “We missed 17 shots in the lane, including three or four layups down the stretch,” noted Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.

    This was the fourth meeting of the season between these teams.  New Harmony had won the previous three contests by an average of 20.7 points per game and outrebounded Cannelton by 16 per game.

  • Schwartz to run for UE

    LEOPOLD—The University of Evansville’s strong engineering program helped the Aces land their latest men’s cross country recruit.

    Perry Central senior Jake Schwartz, who signed Monday, said he chose the Aces because “it’s a smaller college, it has a pretty good engineering program, and I liked that they offered me to run there.”

    Schwartz will receive a combination of academic and athletic scholarships that he said will probably pay most of his tuition at the private school, which competes in NCAA Division I.

  • Olympics should boost hockey...

    I don’t remember if it was in Parade magazine or USA Today, but somewhere I read an Olympic hockey preview that was probably the most accurate I’ve ever seen.

    The writer stated that most experts considered the United States a long shot to earn a medal but the team had a good chance to do so because of goalie Ryan Miller.

    All Miller did was lead USA to a silver medal and within an overtime period of beating Canada for the gold.

  • Malone leads Tri-County in SISC...

    MOUNT VERNON—Chelsea Malone placed second in two events  to lead the Tell City-based Tri-County Swim Club in the Southern Indiana Swim Conference winter meet last weekend.

    She placed third in the 100 free in 57.78 and fourth in the 200 back in 2:23.13.

    Stephen Houle placed fifth in age-11-12 boys 100 and 50 breaststrokes in 1:40.63 and 44.05 respectively, sixth in the 50 butterfly in 50.03, and 10th in the 50 free.

  • Arnold's 3-pointer lifts TC...

    EVANSVILLE—Freshman Brian Arnold hit a three-point shot with 21 seconds left to give Tell City a 51-50 boys basketball victory over Evansville Day Friday.

    Evansville Day then worked the ball upcourt and called two timeouts—the second after seeing what defensive alignment Tell City came out with—to set up a final shot.

    But Ethan Black missed a forced shot from about 15 feet and Tell City’s Nick Kleaving grabbed the rebound just before the final buzzer.
