  • Kashyab wins TLAC Columbus...

    COLUMBUS – Anjan Kashyab of Tell City played in the USTA Boys 14 Singles TLAC Columbus Junior Open in Columbus and won the championship title.

    He played in a tough finals game, which lasted one hour and 40 minutes with high humidity and temperature more than 105 degrees on the court. He beat Graham McMullen of Pendleton 6-4;6-4.

    He now has a 30-11 win-loss record in the USTA 14 Singles category in Indiana. In the preliminary rounds Kashyab got a bye due to his rankings and in the semi-final he beat Ernest XI of Columbus 6-2;6-3.

  • Southridge halts TC win streak

    TELL CITY — Tell City rallied twice to try to keep its winning streak going but lost a Diamond League baseball doubleheader to Southridge Thursday.

    Those were Tell City's first losses of the summer. Tell City was 5-0 in the league and 7-0 overall after sweeping the Heritage Hills Sluggers Junior Legion team in a non-Diamond League doubleheader Wednesday.

  • Kiwanis regains sole possession...

    TELL CITY - Franzman Insurance entered Wednesday's Babe Ruth League baseball game tied for first place with Kiwanis, each with three losses.

    But Franzman's 4-3 loss to Marksman Cab Company, coupled with Kiwanis' 9-7 win over Woodcrafters Thursday, put Kiwanis alone in first place and also put Marksman Cab back into the race.

    Three of Marksman Cab's runs Wednesday were unearned.

  • Column: Weird baseball schedule...

    After playing only Crawford County and North Harrison all month, Perry Central's age-13 and age-14 baseball teams finally get to play someone else this Friday - each other.

    The Perry Central teams play in a summer league that also includes Mitchell, Dubois and Paoli. But they are not scheduled to face any of those teams this summer. Those three play only each other.

    Technically, each team does get to play more than two opponents, though.

  • Two league teams suffer first...

    TELL CITY — Many thought Frederick Sheet Metal and Hair Razors would be the favorites in Tell City's age-13-16 girls softball league this year, and they played like it in lopsided wins over previously undefeated teams Wednesday.

    Frederick Sheet Metal, despite the absence of star pitcher Josalyn Ress due to a volleyball camp, beat Sports Acceleration 12-2 as Allison Parker went 3 for 3.

    Sports Acceleration was also without its top pitcher, McKenzie Hayes.

    Sports Acceleration had only two hits, by Sammie James and Charissa Lahee.

  • Hauser, Kessens on academic all-...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central shortstop Austin Hauser and outfielder Ryan Kessens have been named to the Indiana Baseball Coaches Association's 2009 academic all-state team.

    To be considered for the team a player must be a senior, must start at least 70 percent of his team's games (or pitch 25 percent of its innings), and have an SAT score of at least 1600 or an ACT score of at least 24.

    All players who meet those criteria are ranked based on their test scores and class rank, with the top 50 making academic all-state.

  • Lassaline, Stiles win Glen Ress...

    TELL CITY—Erik Lassaline and John Stiles won the Glen Ress Memorial Open golf scramble Sunday with a 36-hole score of 124.

    Lassaline and Stiles are former star golfers for Tell City High School and also former Schweizer Fest tourney winners. Lassaline still lives in Tell City and Stiles lives in Santa Claus.

    They are also former winners of the Glen Ress Memorial Open, though they had never won it together.

    Lassaline won it in 2005 and 2000 when he teamed with Murray Minto. Stiles won it in 2006 when partnered with Bob Linne and in 1997 with Dan LaGrange.

  • All-PAC teams should be released...

    The Pocket Athletic Conference elected its girls softball all-conference team a week before its baseball all-conference team. But the softball team was released to the media a week after the baseball team.

    That doesn’t make sense.

    The softball team was selected June 1 but not released until two weeks later because some coaches requested it not be released until all conference teams were eliminated from the state tourney.

    Tecumseh won the Class A state title Saturday and Gibson Southern lost in the Class 3A state semifinals Friday.

  • Chinn, Goffinet to play in all-...

    NEW CASTLE—Tell City’s Andy Chinn and Lauren Goffinet will be among 96 of the state’s top basketball players playing in the first Class Basketball All-Star Classic Saturday.

    There will be four games—two for boys and two for girls.

    Goffinet will play in the first game at 11 a.m. Perry County time as stars from Class 2A and A teams in the Indianapolis metropolitan area face their counterparts from the rest of the state.

  • Perry Central splits two...

    LEOPOLD—Miranda Claise pitched a no-hitter and a two-hitter as Perry Central split junior high girls softball doubleheaders Saturday and Monday.

    Claise threw a no-hitter as the Commodores beat Paoli 4-2 in the second game of Saturday’s twinbill.

    She struck out three and walked one in that five-inning game.

    Perry Central had three hits—singles by Hannah Harpenau, Allison Parker and Kosha Wetzel. Parker and Wetzel each drove in two runs.

    Paoli won the opener 4-3 in six innings.
