  • Men’s softball league...

    TELL CITY—The Tell City Men’s Softball League has returned after a five-year absence, and in many ways it is stronger than ever.

    The league folded after the 2003 season, as the Tell City Parks Board voted April 12, 2004, to allow the league to play only on Friday nights because of conflicts with girls league games on adjacent fields. The biggest problem was men’s home runs landing on the girls fields.

  • Ress plays for U.S. in World...

    VIENNA, Austria—Tell City junior Josalyn Ress helped a United States team place second in an international fastpitch softball competition earlier July 10-12.

    Ress pitched and played left field for the United States Foxes in the Friendship Games at the World Sports Festival.

    The competition was sponsored by People to People, a group started by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1956. He believed that direct interaction between ordinary citizens around the world could promote cultural understanding and world peace.

  • New Evansville arena probably...

    Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel has succeeded in pushing through plans for a new downtown arena to replace Roberts Stadium. But I doubt that Perry Countians will visit it much.

    Hundreds of Tell Citians used to make nearly annual visits to Roberts Stadium for basketball games in the 1960s and ’70s.

    That was when Tell City was in the Evansville boys basketball regional and advanced to it nearly every year, winning sectionals 15 times in a 17-year span, 1959-75.

    The Marksmen also played five basketball semistates there in that span.

  • Kleemann to run for U of E'...

    EVANSVILLE—Dylan Kleemann, a 2009 Tell City graduate, is joining the University of Evansville’s men’s cross country team as a walk-on.

    Kleemann did not run any postseason meets for the Marksmen last fall because of an injury. But before he got hurt he was one of the team’s top four runners.

    College cross country races are 10 kilometers, twice as long as high school races. Kleemann said he thinks that change will help him because “I usually do a little bit better with longer distances.”

  • Kashyab wins another doubles...

    JEFFERSONVILLE—Anjan Kashyab of Tell City teamed with Tyler Haas of Dubois County to win their second doubles tennis tourney Sunday.

    They took the age-14-and-under boys doubles title in Bales Auto Mall-Jeffersonville Junior Open.

    They beat Chase Kayrouz and Justin Padgett of Jeffersonville 6-2, 6-1 in their first match.

    In the finals Kashyab and Haas beat Elliot Endris and Jack Stoner of Floyds Knobs 6-1, 6-0.

  • Tri-State nips Smitty's to...

    TELL CITY - Laura McClintic hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the seventh inning as Tri-State Service & Maintenance beat Smitty's Memorial Team 6-5 to win the Tell City Women's Softball League playoff tourney Tuesday.

    Tri-State took a 5-1 lead in the fourth inning on Lacy Hawkins' three-run double, one inning after Kara McClintic hit a two-run double.

    Smitty's battled back to tie the score 5-5, though, with two runs in the sixth and two more in the top of the seventh.

  • Rockport team to play in...

    JASPER - Rockport American Legion Post 254 Coach Jim Haaff has plenty to smile about after winning his 33rd sectional title. Rockport won all three sectional games at Jasper and were crowned champions Sunday.

    Post 254 started out full throttle Thursday playing Jasper. Logan Mohr took the mound and at that point had a 5-0 season pitching record. Mohr allowed two hits and struck out nine batters in seven innings.
