    TELL CITY—Megan Thomas singled home the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning as Kids with Claise edged Celebrations 9-8 to win Tell City’s age-10-12 girls softball playoff tourney Tuesday.

  • Froehlich places 3rd, Weiss 4th...

    ORLANDO, Fla.—Tell City Wrestling Club members Dylan Froehlich and Jeff Weiss earned medals for their performances with Hoosier Elite in the AAU national wrestling tourney June 23-26.

    Hoosier Elite wrestled 13 matches in the tourney and finished 30th among 38 teams in the all-star division.

    Though it was a team competition, individual records were also kept to determine the top finishers in each weight class.

    Froehlich, who will be a senior at Tell City, went 11-2 with five pins to place third and earn the bronze medal in the 215-pound weight class.

  • Chinn, Goffinet help State all-...

    NEW CASTLE - Recent Tell City graduates Andy Chinn and Lauren Goffinet held their own with players from throughout the state as they helped their teams win in the first Indiana Class Basketball All-Star Classic Saturday.

    The Classic featured two boys and two girls games, with players from the Indianapolis Metro Area taking on players from the rest of the state.

    One game for each gender featured stars from Class A and 2A schools and the other featured players from Class 3A and 4A schools.

  • Classic good idea but still...

    Like any first-year project, the Indiana Class Basketball All-Star Classic needs some fine tuning. But I like the basic concept behind it and think it will gain more popularity with players and fans in future years.

    One thing I like is it is virtually the only all-star classic in which half the players must come from schools in the state's two smallest enrollment classes.

    Thus a lot of players from smaller schools who got overlooked by other all-star games got to play in this one.
