    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.

    NEW HARMONY—New Harmony ended the game with a 24-3 run to defeat Cannelton 63-52 in boys basketball Friday night.
    The Bulldogs led at the end of each of the first three quarters, taking a seven-point lead at the end of the third period as Brandon Cook banked in a 50-foot three-point shot at the buzzer.
    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.

    TELL CITY—Ohio County used a half-court trap that led to easy baskets in a 72-56 boys basketball win over Tell City Friday.
    With 5:13 left in the third quarter Brian Arnold’s layup cut Ohio County's lead to one, 27-26. Then the Eagles used the half-court trap to go on an 11-0 run.
    Logan Baumann started the run by making three free throws after being fouled on a three-point shot.

    MARENGO—Perry Central’s final basket was ruled to have come after the buzzer, allowing Crawford County to nip the Commodores 62-60 in PLAC boys basketball Friday.
    After falling behind by 11 points in the first 4:04 of the game, Perry Central rallied to tie the score at the end of regulation on a strong second half by Tanner Cassidy.
    Cassidy, who scored 21 of his game-high 23 points after halftime, hit a driving 5-foot shot with 0:07 left in regulation to tie the score 54-54.

  • Tell City girls’ shooting cold...

    TELL CITY—Tell City Coach John Lyons called his team’s play in a 42-20 PAC girls basketball loss to North Posey Saturday “embarrassing.”
    “We didn’t show up to play,” he said. “We didn’t play half as well as we did against South Spencer.”
    It was hard to find any positive statistics for the Marksmen.
    They committed 26 turnovers and hit only 4 of 33 (12.1 percent) from the field, including 2 of 18 from three-point range.

  • Marksman boys seventh in PAC

    LYNNVILLE—Tell City made the championship finals in only two individual events as it finished seventh in the seven-team PAC boys swim meet Saturday.

  • Cannelton crushes Riders

    CANNELTON—Turnovers were the big difference as Cannelton trounced Wesley Christian 67-36 in girls basketball Saturday.
    Cannelton edged the team from eastern Kentucky 40.0 percent to 35.9 percent in field-goal shooting and 34-30 in rebounds.
    But the Riders committed 25 turnovers compared with just seven for Cannelton. That was the main reason the Bulldogs got 26 more field goal attempts.

  • Commodore girls win 2 of 3

    FRENCH LICK—Ashley Graves had 22 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists, five blocks and two steals as Perry Central blasted Springs Valley 73-51 in PLAC girls basketball Monday.
    Graves, a 6-foot-1 junior center, hit 7 of 12 shots from the field and 8 of 10 free throws.
    “She had just a phenomenal performance,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson.
    Brittany Parker added 17 points on 7 of 16 field-goal shooting and 3 of 4 free throws.
    She made four steals and Lindsey Gengelbach had five assists.

  • Marksmen 4th in PAC wrestling
