  • TC girls 2nd at Mount Vernon

    MOUNT VERNON—Hana Reed won the diving to lead Tell City to second place in a three-team girls swim meet Saturday.

    Though all three teams swam together, the meet was scored as three separate dual meets. Tell City beat Vincennes Lincoln 127-44 but lost to Mount Vernon 125-55.

    May has been at Crown Point since graduating from Indiana State University in 1970. He coached the boys junior varsity basketball team for six years before getting out of coaching for four years.

  • Those wanting sixth class are...

    Southwestern Indiana’s Class 5A football schools have been campaigning for a sixth class in that sport for several years and brought up the issue again at the recent Indiana Football Coaches Association’s Region 9 meeting.

    Evansville North and Castle are the only Southwestern Indiana schools currently in Class 5A.

    North, ranked 60th in the state this year in enrollment with 1,524 students, thinks it is unfair that it has to compete with schools nearly three times as big (such as Ben Davis, with 4,495 students).

  • Cannelton holds off New Harmony

    CANNELTON—Cannelton used strong defense and rebounding to build a 22-point halftime lead and held on to beat New Harmony 50-37 to win the Bulldog Invitational boys basketball tourney Saturday.

    But they made five of their next nine as they pulled within six points, 38-32, with 61⁄2 minutes left in the game.
