    FERDINAND—Turnovers and missed free throws proved costly for Perry Central in a 56-49 boys basketball loss to Forest Park Saturday.

  • Shorthanded Tell City boys fall...

    TELL CITY—Short-handed Tell City won four events but lost to Heritage Hills 125-28 in boys swimming Thursday.
    With only five boys on the team, the Marksmen are usually badly outnumbered by their opponents. But this week was even worse as they had two boys sidelined due to sickness.
    Thus they had only three boys competing and couldn’t even enter any relay, which requires four boys.
    Still they had some good performances.
    Aaron Vincent won the 100-yard freestyle in 1:01.15 and the 100 backstroke in 1:12.95.

  • Jasper defeats Tell City

    TELL CITY—Tell City won four of the 10 matches actually wrestled but lost to Jasper 57-18 in wrestling Thursday.
    Tell City had to forfeit in four of the 10 weight classes.
    “We wanted to beat them in head-to-head matches and we were going to consider that a victory,” said Tell City Coach Joe Litherland. “We didn’t quite get that done, but we wrestled well for the most part.”
    Mason Waninger had one of the most exciting matches for Tell City in the 106-pound weight class.

  • Tell City girls outswim Heritage...

    TELL CITY—Tell City won eight of 12 events to beat Heritage Hills 99-83 in girls swimming Thursday.
    The Marksmen have now beaten both of the other top contenders for the PAC title (Southridge being the other), but Tell City Coach Mike Page said he thinks Heritage Hills is “probably going to be the favorite” because of its depth.
    He said it was hard to make any assumptions from this meet because Heritage Hills was shorthanded.

    CROTHERSVILLE—Red-hot three-point shooting helped Crothersville defeat Cannelton 109-42 in boys basketball Friday.
    The Tigers’ night started out rather pedestrian as they built a 14-8 lead at the end of the first quarter.  They hit just 2 of 8 three-point shots in the quarter.
    “I felt like we got a lot of good looks early on,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. “We got the ball into Quinn (Duke)—we just couldn’t get anything to drop.”

  • Cannelton girls edge Orleans in...

    CANNELTON—Cannelton played strong defense to survive a cold shooting night and beat Orleans 42-41 in overtime in girls basketball Thursday.
    The Bulldogs hit only 29.4 percent from the field and only 55.0 percent of their free throws.
    Orleans hit 35.0 percent from the field but Cannelton concentrated on keeping Orleans from penetrating into the lane and the visitors often settled for three-point shots. They hit only 4 of 18 from beyond the arc.

    EVANSVILLE—Zach Roberts placed fifth to lead Tell City in Mater Dei’s 14-team wrestling tourney last Thursday and Friday.
    The Marksmen scored 20 points to finish 14th in team standings. Mater Dei won with 269.5 points.
    Tell City were hurt by having to forfeit six weight classes. That is two more than usual, as stars Justin Alvarez and Blake Alvey were unable to wrestle due to medical reasons.
    Roberts went 3-2 with one pin in the 220-pound weight class.

  • Paoli trounces PC girls

    PAOLI—Perry Central committed 15 turnovers in the first half and lost to Paoli 59-25 in PLAC girls basketball Tuesday.
    Paoli built a 28-10 halftime lead.
    “We had 13 shots and 15 turnovers in the first half,” noted Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “Id say 13 of those turnovers were unforced.
    “We didn’t have any trouble with their press, but we’d throw it away once we got down(court).
