    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s football team has only two full-time starters returning on offense and two on defense. But several other returnees saw extensive action last year, which makes it likely that the Commodores will reload instead of rebuilding this year.
    Travis James, who made junior all-state at tackle last year, and Hunter LaGrange are the only full-time offensive starters back. And LaGrange is switching from fullback to tailback.

  • Aiming for a ringer

    Herman Etienne concentrates on the peg as he releases a horseshoe in the Schweizer Fest doubles tourney Friday.

    TELL CITY—The good news for Tell City’s girls golf team is it returns three starters from last year.
    The bad news is there is only one other player on the team, a senior who just started playing golf 1 1/2 weeks ago. And the Marksmen graduated their top player from last year’s 3-22 team.
    Returnees for the Marksmen are seniors Jessica Ballman and Amber Fentress and sophomore Jenny Hess.

    TELL CITY—With only one senior and one junior, Tell City’s boys tennis is young. But the Marksmen do have some experience.
    Junior Anjan Kashyab has played No. 1 singles the last two years and made All-PAC both years. He finished with a 10-4 record last year, including 6-2 in conference matches.
    He has also played USTA tourneys frequently in the summers, even winning two tourneys in Oklahoma this year.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys soccer team enters its second varsity season still looking for its first win.
    The Marksmen scored only six goals in 11 games last year as they went 0-10-1. And Taylor LaGrange, who scored five of the six and made All-PAC last year, has graduated.
    However new coach Don Foerster thinks “we have the potential to be a good team. We have a lot of desire. What we need to do is work on the skills to make them better players.”

    CANNELTON—Cannelton’s volleyball team is in a similar situation to Tell City’s football team.
    Like the grid Marksmen, the Bulldogs have their third coach in three years and have turned to one of the team’s former stars to try to end a string of losing seasons.
    Also like the grid Marksmen, the Bulldogs will field a young team as they try to achieve that goal.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s volleyball team is still young, but Coach Becky Genet thinks the Commodores can be more competitive in the PLAC than in recent years.
    The Commodores went 13-17 last year, tying their best win total in the last four years. They were fourth in the seven-team PLAC with a 3-3 conference record.
    This year there are only two seniors and five juniors on the team’s 20-girl roster. For the second year in a row Genet will rely on two freshmen in the varsity rotation.
