  • Turnovers doom Tell City

    MOUNT VERNON—Tell City committed 32 turnovers in a 52-23 girls basketball loss to Mount Vernon Saturday.
    “We played a pretty good first quarter (trailing only 12-11),” said Tell City Coach John Lyons. “Then we just started making turnovers and it went downhill from there.
    “We took a 14-13 lead early in the second quarter; then Mount Vernon went on a 33-0 run. It was 46-14 in the fourth quarter before we scored again.

    LINCOLN CITY—A swarming defense helped start a late second quarter rally which catapulted Heritage Hills past Tell City 47-34 in PAC girls basketball Tuesday.

  • PC girls fall to Mitchell

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central committed 27 turnovers in a 42-37 PLAC girls basketball loss to Mitchell Saturday.
    “We played hard but we didn’t play with very much mental intensity,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “Mitchell pressed a little bit, but it was not anything we didn’t see at (Springs) Valley.
    “It’s just really frustrating to play like that when we’ve been playing a lot better.”

  • Cold Bulldogs fall to Rappites

    NEW HARMONY—Cannelton hit only 19.6 percent from the field in a 53-35 girls basketball loss to New Harmony Friday.
    The Bulldogs shot better from three-point range (24.0 percent) than from two-point range (16.1 percent).
    “We couldn’t do anything,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “We had almost as many fouls as we had points.
    “We couldn’t get to the basket (because of charging calls) and we missed a lot of defensive rebounds we should’ve got.”

    For the game the Commodores made 8 of 15 from behind the three-point line. They hit 3 of 4 in the first quarter.
    “The reason (our three-pointers) were going in was we were taking good shots,” said Perry Central Coach Matt Carter.

    NEWBURGH—Four Tell City wrestlers qualified for the regional but none placed first or second as the Marksmen tied for seventh in the nine-team Castle sectional Saturday.

  • Fame induction will be star-...

    When Wes Davis, Pat Malone and Dave Schank are inducted into Tell City High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame Friday, they won’t be the only former star athletes in attendance.
    As I said in an earlier column, it would be nice if some of the baseball players who helped the Marksmen win a conference title last spring could attend. But the four seniors from that team are all playing college baseball and have already started spring practice, so it’s unlikely they will be able to make it to the 4:30 p.m. induction ceremony.

    Cook hit another three on Cannelton’s first possession of the fourth quarter, pushing its lead to 10 points. The Bulldogs, however, could not sustain their momentum.
