  • Basketball shooters must...

    John Wooden obviously knew quite a bit about basketball.
    He was an Indiana all-state player three times in high school, a three-time All-American at Purdue, and the coach of 10 NCAA championship teams at UCLA.
    When he was on a college basketball hall of fame board, he advocated the election of Rick Mount, another three-time All-American guard for Purdue.
    Someone said, “All he could do was shoot.” To which Wooden replied, “All Picasso could do was paint.”

  • New TC softball coach welcomes...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City girls softball players must think their eligibility expires after three years, as the team had just two seniors each of the last two years and has only one this year.
    Four juniors, eight sophomores and three freshmen complete this year’s 16-girl roster. But new coach Maggie Schuetter thinks there is enough talent for the team to be successful.
    Only three Marksmen hit over .200 last year and two of them graduated. The team was shut out 13 times as it went 2-19.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls track team starts the season with 22 girls, the most it has had since 1998.
    Several talented freshmen, including current coach Katie Weyer (then Katie Chinn) helped increase the size of the 1998 team. And that is also the case this year.
    Freshman Emma Kohnert will team with senior Logan Flannagan to give the Marksmen quality depth in the high jump and probably both hurdles races.

  • Sectional title could be in TC...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—This area’s boys track sectional has been won by Perry County teams the last three years and very well could be again this year.
    But Tell City Coach Zac Hartz hopes it is Tell City bringing home the crown, as it was in 2011, instead of Perry Central, as it was the last two years.
    With 41 boys on the team—the most ever—including 11 seniors and 16 lettermen, the Marksmen might have the talent and depth to achieve that goal.

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—With strong sprinters, distance runners, hurdlers and jumpers, Perry Central will try for its third consecutive boys track sectional title this spring.
    The Commodores have 27 boys on the team. There are only six seniors, “but man, there’s a lot of talent in that senior group,” said Coach Jason Barnett.

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls softball team won its first PLAC title and set numerous school records last year. And with most of the key players returning, Coach Mark Rothgerber thinks the Commodores can enjoy similar success this year.
    Six starters return from last year’s 16-5 team. Kosha Wetzel, who was a starter two years ago but did not play last year, has also rejoined the team.
