    TELL CITY—This summer’s extreme heat apparently took its toll on Tell City’s girls cross country team.
    The Marksmen started summer workouts with 15 runners but now begin the season with just seven—three fewer than last year.
    They do return five letter winners though. Four of them were among their five scorers in last year’s sectional as freshmen: Addie Terry, Audrie Terry, Bailey Powell and Mariah Blake.

    LEOPOLD—Better than usual quickness could carry Perry Central to a PLAC football title.
    “We’re pretty quick,” said Coach Greg Gibson. “This is the fastest team we’ve had in probably three or four years.”
    He said Austin LeClere, Devin Martin and Dacota Schaad are probably the team’s three fastest players, with Tim Harrison, Levi Hilgenhold and Nathan Shaw not far behind.

    TELL CITY—Tell City football coach Ryan George hopes good size and quickness can make up for his team’s lack of depth.
    There are 37 boys on the roster, “about the same as last year,” George noted. “I thought we’d have a few more kids out. We’ve got good kids, but we’re a little thin.”
    Not physically thin, though. The offensive line will feature 6-foot-2, 270-pound Cody Osborne and 6-foot-3, 260-pound Justin Gunterman at tackles.
