    TELL CITY—Kim Strobel nee Sabelhaus was a star sprinter for Tell City’s girls track team and still holds the school record for the 400-meter dash she set as a freshman in 1989.
    But the Tell City teacher said Wednesday she “may have missed my calling” as a distance runner. To prove it, she has qualified for this year’s Boston Marathon, to be held April 16.

  • Florida teams could meet in...

    Major League Baseball starts each year with about half its teams traveling from one Florida city to another to meet in exhibition games.
    This year the season could end much the same way, with the Tampa Bay Rays and Miami Marlins traveling back and forth to play each other in the World Series.
    I’m sure you’re surprised at that prediction because I usually pick the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series. In the last 12 years they have won it as many times as any other team (two), so that really hasn’t been such a bad pick.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central graduated its top two pitchers and four of its top hitters from last year’s 8-12 baseball team. But the Commodores return a strong defensive infield.
    That is why second-year coach Phil Zellers said Thursday, “I think defense again will be our main strength.”
    He is concerned about the lack of pitching depth, though.

    CANNELTON—Cannelton’s baseball team has a lot of unproven pitchers and hitters, but “our defense should be pretty good,” said Coach Mike Garrett.
    Larry Holman, who went 1-6 for the 2-16 Bulldogs last year, is the only returnee who saw significant mound action for the Bulldogs last year.
    He will be joined in the starting rotation by Drake Duke, a transfer from Tell City, and freshman Bryce Garrett.
