  • Tell City cold at line in loss...

    LYNNVILLE—Tell City Coach John Hayes thought the Marksmen did several things wrong in their 63-57 PAC boys basketball loss to Tecumseh Friday.

    But he laid most of the blame on their cold free-throw shooting.

    The Marksmen hit only 9 of 17 at the line and missed four front ends of one-and-bonus situations.

    The Marksmen shot free throws well in the first half (5 for 7). But turnovers plagued them (eight in the first quarter) as they went into halftime trailing 29-23.

  • Hauenstein, Wagner lead Tell...

    TELL CITY—Erika Hauenstein and Amanda Wagner each won two individual events and two relays as Tell City beat Southridge 106-74 in girls swimming Thursday.

    Hauenstein won the 200-yard individual medley in 2:29.30 and the 500 freestyle in 5:49.90.

    Wagner won the 50 free in 25.64 seconds and the 100 breaststroke in 1:10.94, just 20-hundredths of a second off her personal best set in last year’s sectional.

    Those two teamed with Chelsea and Bailey Malone to win the 200 medley relay in 2:01.47.

  • PC pulls away from Orleans in...

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central used its pressure defense to outscore Orleans 16-8 in the fourth quarter and beat the Bulldogs 41-32 in PLAC girls basketball Thursday.

    The Commodores led only 25-24 after three quarters but held Orleans to just two field goals in the final period.

    “I think we wore them down a little bit,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “We got some steals and got loose on some breaks.

  • Tell City girls fall in OT

    TELL CITY—Tecumseh scored 15 points in overtime to beat Tell City 63-55 in PAC girls basketball Thursday.

    “We played really well,” said Tell City Coach John Lyons. “But we made  a few key turnovers (in overtime) and they hit some key shots.”

    Tecumseh had trouble hitting three-point shots most of the game against Tell City’s aggressive man-to-man defense. “We got out and played hard,” said Lyons.

  • Raiders outswim Tell City boys

    TELL CITY—Tell City swept the diving but won only one other event as it lost to Southridge 92-60 in boys swimming Thursday.

    Junior Taylor Maddle won the diving with 216.50 points, his first time above 200 points this season.

    Logan Bolin placed second with 185.15 points, also a personal record, and Chris Martin took third with 104.60 points.

    Tell City also won the 200-yard freestyle relay. Nick Bower, Jerry Ammon, David McDaniel and Greg Clayton swam it in 1:46.66 to win by 12.60 seconds.

  • Tell City romps past South...

    TELL CITY—Tell City used a full-court press to force 21 turnovers and defeated South Central 70-47 in boys basketball Saturday.

    With 6:65 left in the game South Central’s Dylan Carpenter made a three-point shot from the left wing, cutting the Marksmen’s lead to six, 47-41.

    The Marksmen went back to what had worked for them in the first quarter as Shane Weedman scored a basket from the low post.

    Trent Gunn made a basket from the left baseline extending the Tell City lead to 10.

  • LaRue, Mater Dei outgun...

    LEOPOLD—Hank LaRue answered each Perry Central run with clutch shooting as Mater Dei beat the Commodores 74-62 in boys basketball Saturday.

    Mater Dei, ranked sixth in the state in Class 2A and a possible sectional opponent for Perry Central, built a 38-23 halftime lead as LaRue scored 15 points.

    Despite Mater Dei’s depth and quickness, Perry Central was able to cut that gap to five with a full-court press in the third quarter.

  • Washington Catholic downs cold...

    WASHINGTON—Cannelton’s shooting woes continued in a 67-40 boys basketball loss to Washington Catholic Saturday.

    The Bulldogs hit just 22.0 percent from the field overall and 5 of 39 from three-point range.

    “We were getting good looks, but nothing was dropping,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. “We were hesitant on our outside shots. We catch the ball and think about our shot instead of being confident and taking the open shot.”

  • Tell City pins Chargers; goes 3-...

    TELL CITY—Tell City won four matches by pins in a 40-18 wrestling victory over Pike Central Tuesday.

    The Marksmen also won three decisions. And for once forfeits did not hurt them as they scored as many points on forfeits (six) as they gave up (two weight classes were double forfeits).

    Jessie Lawalin, Ryan Henrickson, Jared Keown and Zach Roberts earned Tell City’s pins, all in the second period.

    Kyle Shrubb won a 13-5 major decision for the Marksmen. Andrew Dauby and Dylan Froehlich won regular decisions.

  • Bulldogs lose two close ones

    FRENCH LICK—Cold field-goal shooting and a lack of depth hurt Cannelton’s girls basketball team as it lost two games in Springs Valley’s tourney Saturday.

    The Bulldogs had only six players for the first-round game (two seniors were taking the SAT and did not arrive until halftime of the consolation game) and lost to Springs Valley 47-45.

    Cannelton led 11-1 early. “Then we kind of got lost on defense in our (3-2) zone and gave up a lot of uncontested shots on the wings,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.
