  • Tell City wins six-team tourney...

    CLARKSVILLE—Dylan Froehlich, Matt Leistner and Jesse Lawalin each went 5-0 as Tell City won Providence’s six-team, round-robin wrestling tourney Saturday.

    Tell City beat Milan 38-37, Southwestern 43-24, Providence 60-16, New Washington 57-12, and Paoli 69-0.

    Tell City trailed Milan 37-32 going into the final match, the 112-pound bout. So Jesse Lawalin had to pin his opponent in that match for the Marksmen to win.

    It took 5:23, but Lawalin finally did earn the pin—one of two he had for the day—to give the Marksmen the victory.

  • Cannelton girls win two

    NEW ALBANY—Cannelton used a trapping defense in the second half to overtake Christian Academy of Indiana for a 49-43 girls basketball victory Monday.

    The Bulldogs trailed by eight points in the middle of the third quarter. “Then we went to kind of a half-court trap” and forced several turnovers, said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.

    He added, “We rebounded pretty well. We blocked out a lot better.”

    The Bulldogs outrebounded the Warriors 41-37 as Allicyn Garrett grabbed 10 and Jaci Garrett and Payton Reed each added six.

    She hit 4 of 9 from the field, including 2 of 5 from three-point range, and led the Commodores with 11 points.

  • Junior high expects to keep use...

    Tell City-Troy Township School Corp.’s considering closing its junior high school probably has some sports fans wondering where all the school system’s basketball teams would find room to practice and play all their games.

    If the proposed closing of the junior high goes into effect, sixth graders would attend William Tell Elementary and seventh and eighth graders would attend Tell City High School.

  • Perry Central press stops South...

    LINCOLN CITY—Perry Central’s 1-2-2 full-court press helped force 19 South Spencer turnovers as the Commodores beat the Rebels 52-42 for seventh place in the PSC Holiday Classic boys basketball tourney Saturday.

    South Spencer outshot the Commodores from the field 54.5 percent to 42.9 percent and outrebounded them 23-18.

  • Snows forces postponements

    PERRY COUNTY—All sports events involving Perry County teams Thursday and Friday and most Saturday were postponed due to the area’s first snowstorm of this winter.

    Tell City’s boys basketball home game with Mount Vernon, postponed Friday, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 26.

    No new date had been announced at press time for Perry Central’s boys basketball game at Forest Park, which was postponed Saturday.

  • Aces' hot shooting knocks...

    LINCOLN CITY—When two reserves combine for 33 points on 63 percent field-goal shooting, it usually bodes well for their basketball team and poorly for their opponent.

    Such was the case in Owensboro Catholic’s 61-48 win over Tell City for fifth place in the PSC Holiday Classic Saturday.

    Neil Lanham, a 6-foot-4 senior, was the ninth man to enter the game for the Aces but led them with 20 points on 8 of 13 field-goal shooting and 3 of 5 free throws.
