  • Cannelton girls cruise past...

    COLUMBUS—Sarah Powers scored 27 points as Cannelton crushed Columbus Christian 67-18 in girls basketball Monday.
    “They were young—they had no seniors and I think only two juniors,” Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett said. “This is the first year they’ve had a girls team in six or seven years.”
    Thus Cannelton raced to a 43-4 halftime lead.
    Powers made several layups in transition as she hit 10 of 20 shots from two-point range and 4 of 4 free throws. But she made only 1 of 10 three-point shots.

  • Marksmen win all 12 events in 3-...

    LYNNVILLE—Jennifer Dinkel and Amanda Wagner each won two individual events as Tell City cruised to victory in a three-team girls swim meet Thursday.
    The Marksmen scored 139 points, Gibson Southern 86, and Tecumseh 35.
    Dinkel won the 200-yard individual medley in 2:46.48, which Tell City Coach Mike Page said “might have been her personal best.”

  • Anti-class basketball bill has...

    The anti-class basketball bill that Sen. Mike Delph, R-Carmel, has introduced in this session of the Indiana legislature is consistent with state Republicans’ attempts to bludgeon the little guy.
    Like the so-called “right-to-work” bill (which would actually lead to less tolerable working conditions) that Republicans are pushing, Delph’s bill would make it hard for the little guy to get a fair shot.
    In this case the little guy is  every small school in the state.

  • TC girls sweep Central

    TELL CITY—Tell City won all 12 events to wallop Evansville Central 119-49 in girls swimming Thursday.
    It was senior night for Tell City and “our senior girls performed well—they’re pretty competitive,” said Tell City Coach Mike Page.
    Amanda Wagner won two individual events and two relays to lead the Marksmen.
    Loren Braunecker and Charissa Lahee each also won two individual events.

  • Marksmen pin Wolfpack

    MARENGO—Tell City won all but one match actually wrestled to crush Crawford County 52-18 in wrestling Tuesday.
    Having to forfeit four weight classes usually hurts the Marksmen, but they gained six points on forfeits Tuesday because Crawford County had fewer wrestlers than they did.
    Two weight classes were double forfeits.
    Among the six matches actually wrestled, Tell City won four by pins and one by a major decision.
    “The ones that did actually wrestle did well,” said Tell City Coach Joe Litherland.
