    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys swim team thought it lacked depth when it started last season with nine boys, but that looks like a large group compared to this year’s squad.
    The Marksmen have six boys on the team. They also lack experience, as they have five freshmen and a sophomore who missed part of last season.

    LEOPOLD—Height and experience were two elements lacking on Perry Central’s boys basketball team last year, but they have increased both this year.
    They have mostly the same players from last year’s 10-12 squad, returning five of the top six and nine lettermen.
    They of course have a year of varsity experience, and several have grown at least an inch.
