  • Southridge tops TC with help of...

    HUNTINGBURG—Having to forfeit six of the seven heaviest weight classes hurt Tell City in a 63-39 junior high wrestling loss to Southridge Thursday.
    “Head to head I thought we matched up very well with them,” said Tell City Coach Chase Litherland. “We won the head to head battle in the actual matches wrestled 35-27.
    “But with six forfeits at the end of our lineup, it’s hard to win matches against a full squad of solid wrestlers.”

  • Challenging draw shouldn’t deter...

    Tell City and Mater Dei, who will play each other in the first round Wednesday, received the toughest draw in the Castle boys basketball sectional.
    But that shouldn’t deter Tell City, as the Marksmen have won sectionals before with tougher draws.
    If one were seeding the sectionals, something the IHSAA is talking about doing next year, Forest Park, Mater Dei and Tell City would be the top seeds based on their overall records and results against other teams in the field.
    But who would get the top two seeds and thus be placed in opposite brackets?

    Browning entered the game averaging 25.6 points per game, 46.0 percent of his team’s average.
    “He’s a handful - we knew he would be,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Snyder. “He’s really quick, he’s very good with the basketball, and he can shoot it too.”
