    They had a 46-38 lead with 2:37 left but missed both shots of a double-bonus free-throw situation.

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City could not match its sectional times as it finished 26th through 30th in its four events in the IHSAA girls state swim meet last weekend.
    Chelsea Malone, Amanda Wagner, Charissa Lahee and Erika Hauenstein turned in the Marksmen’s highest finish, 26th, in the 200-yard medley relay, swimming it in 1:42.35.
    That was 27-hundredths of a second slower than their sectional winning time. Had they matched their sectional time, they would have beaten Westfield and Castle and finished 24th.

    When she played, though, she dominated inside at both ends of the court.
    She averaged 15.5 points and a school-record 13.4 rebounds per game and hit 51.2 percent from the field and 61.9 percent of her free throws.
