    TELL CITY—Improved guard play and shooting could lead to a winning season for Tell City’s girls basketball team.
    ““With Katie Goffinet, Hayley Fackler, who just continues to get better, Lizzy Kehl, Chloe Carman and Grace Kreilein, for the first time in a while I feel like our guard play is going to be pretty good,” said Coach John Hayes.
    Four of those players will start, though, so the Marksmen will be a guard-dominated team.

  • Six locals on academic all-state

    INDIANAPOLIS—Five Perry County boys and one local girl were named to the Indiana Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches’ academic all-state teams last week.
    Tell City seniors Leo and Thomas Simpson and junior Chase Beckort and Perry Central seniors John Bashor and Luke Bishop made the boys team.
    Tell City senior Alex Reed and juniors Elliot Reed and Will Simpson received honorable mention on it, as did Perry Central’s Ethan Bolin and Logan Hubert.

    CANNELTON—The good news for Cannelton’s girls basketball team is it has some experience.
    Five letter winners return, including last year’s leaders in rebounding, assists and steals and two of the top three scorers.
    The bad news is the Bulldogs have little depth. There are only two other players - both freshmen - on the roster, and one of them has never played organized basketball.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central went scoreless in the third quarter and lost to Southridge 37-33 in season-opening girls basketball Tuesday.
    The Commodores had some problems with Southridge’s press early and fell behind 11-2.
    Then they started to break it and Southridge got in foul trouble with it and called it off.
    The Commodores went on a 6-0 run to take a 19-18 lead with 2:17 left in the first half.

  • State meet capped amazing run...

    Tell City’s boys cross country team will still be good next year. As I wrote earlier, the Marksmen should still be sectional favorites, and they could compete for another regional title unless several more outstanding runners join Christian Academy.
    But it will be hard to top the run they have had lately.
    They have extended their streak of winning the Jasper sectional to five consecutive years and next year will try to match the school’s best streak ever of six years set in the 1970s, when Tell City had more than twice as many students as it has now.

    LEOPOLD—Good quickness, along with better ball-handling and shooting, could help Perry Central’s girls basketball team improve on last year’s 3-20 record.
    “We play really hard and we’ve got some quickness,” said Ty Guillaume, who is starting his fifth season as the team’s head coach. “I wouldn’t say it’s the fastest group we’ve had overall, but we’ve got some quick girls at different positions.”

  • Marksmen place 8th in state meet
