    MARENGO—Chelsea Jellison’s transition layup with 21 seconds left lifted Crawford County past Tell City 38-37 in girls basketball Friday.
    Tell City led 37-32 after McKenzie Hayes hit 1 of 2 free throws with 2:11 left.
    Jellison scored the last six points of the game, though, hitting a driving 6-foot baseline shot, a 15-footer out front, and then the go-ahead layup off a Crawford County steal.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s wrestling team has its fewest boys in years and will start at least four freshmen.
    There are only three seniors and three juniors (one a first-year wrestler) on the 14-man roster. And because some are in the same weight class, the Marksmen will be able to fill only 11 of the 14 weight classes.
    Still the Marksmen have some talented individuals. Coach Joe Litherland hopes to have “three or four” PAC or sectional champions after having none last year.

    CANNELTON—Cannelton’s boys basketball team lacks experience and outside shooting but hopes to make up for it with improved quickness and ball-handling.
    The Bulldogs graduated three starters from last year’s 3-18 team and had two of their top seven players from that squad transfer to another school this fall.
    That leaves them with just two returning lettermen, 6-foot-3 sophomore center Quinn Duke and sophmore guard Elijah Littles.

    CANNELTON—Sarah Powers scored 28 points as Cannelton beat Medora 72-50 in girls basketball Friday.

  • Two Perry Central opponents...

    Perry Central’s football team finished with a 5-5 record this year, which nearly everyone connected with the team called a disappointment.
    That tied the Commodores’ worst record in the last 17 years (the 1998 team also went 5-5).
    But it would have been considered great 30 years ago, when the Commodores completed back-to-back winless seasons.
    One of the reasons the Commodores’ record wasn’t quite as good as they had hoped this year, though, was they played a really strong schedule.

  • Marksmen sink Rebels

    TELL CITY—Tell City won all 11 events to rout South Spencer 114-36 in girls swimming Tuesday.
    The Marksmen also took second place in all eight individual events and two of the three relays.
    Loren Braunecker and Amanda Wagner each won two individual events for the Marksmen.
    Braunecker took the 200-yard freestyle in 2:23.51 and the 500 free in 6:29.09.
    Wagner won the 200 individual medley in 2:24.38 and the 100 breaststroke in 1:11.33.

  • Turnovers plague Perry Central...

    CORYDON—Perry Central committed 34 turnovers in a 55-29 season-opening girls basketball loss Saturday.
    “We broke their press most of the time, but we threw it away once we got down,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “We didn’t attack their pressure once we got across halfcourt.
    “They’re pretty good, and we just played OK in spurts.”
