  • Garrett says Bulldogs'...

    CANNELTON—Cannelton’s baseball team lacks depth but has plenty of experience.

    The Bulldogs have only 11 players, which means injuries or any kind of ineligibility could cause severe problems.

    But eight starters return from last year’s 1-20 team. And another, who was unable to play last year, was the team’s top pitcher two years ago when he went 2-3.

    Though some players are switching positions, “our defense will be our biggest asset,” said second-year coach Mike Garrett.

  • Sophs could lead TC

    TELL CITY—Though Tell City’s boys track team graduated “a really good senior class” last spring, Coach Chris Hollinden thinks the Marksmen could still contend for the PAC title this year.

    He has 35 boys on the team this year, though with only six seniors “we’re pretty young,” he said. “The vast majority are sophomores but that’s a great group—they won the junior high PAC title as eighth graders.”

  • Distances strong for Tell City...

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls track team returns a sectional champion jumper but has the most depth and experience in the distance races.

    “We have only two throwers, five distance girls, and six or seven sprinters,” said Coach Katie Chinn.

    With the depth in distance runners, the 3200-meter relay “could be our strongest event,” said Chinn.

    Cross country stars Andyn Rowe, Sarah Goffinet and Tiffany Davis will run it along with “either Brittany Waninger or Elizabeth Kohnert,” said Chinn.

  • Yankees' spending not...

    After the New York Yankees spent $423.5 million for free agent pitchers C.C. Sabathia and A.J Burnett and first baseman Mark Teixera this winter, I told a friend that everyone in the sports media would again pick them to win the World Series.

    “Not everyone,” he said, expecting that I would pick the Boston Red Sox instead.

  • Chinn unanimous choice as all-...

    Voters for this year’s All-Perry County boys basketball team pretty much agreed on four spots on the team, but there was a wide variety of choices for the fifth spot.

    As usual voting was done by the three county coaches, the three who coached against all three county teams (Kelly Ballard of Evansville Day, Kevin Oxley of Tecumseh, and Rob Schulte of South Spencer), and me, who saw each county team play at least nine times.

    Tell City guard Andy Chinn, Perry Central forward Reuben A. Schwartz and Cannelton guard Tyler Aud were unanimous choices of the voters.

  • Goffinet makes academic all-state

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City guard Lauren Goffinet has been named to the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association’s 2009 girls academic all-state team.

    Twenty-five seniors who were key players on their teams and excelled academically were chosen for the team.

    Goffinet led the Marksmen in every basketball statistic and also excelled in the classroom.

    She carries a 4.0 grade-point average and scored 1,780 on the SAT.

    She plans to attend Kentucky Wesleyan College and study secondary education with a major in social sciences.

  • TC has 3 champs at Jeffersonville

    JEFFERSONVILLE—Tell City Wrestling Club members K.T. Hartness, Devon Casebolt and Jace Bryant won their weight classes in a freestyle tourney Saturday.

    Hartness went 6-0 with three pins to lead 10 wrestlers in the peewee 45-pound division.

    Casebolt was first among six wrestlers in the bantam 50 division, going 4-0 with three pins and a technical fall.

    Bryant went 2-0 with one pin and one technical fall to win the peewee 55 weight class.

    Cameron Kessinger placed second in intermediate 80, going 4-1 with three pins.

  • Froehlich, Weiss place in...

    INDIANAPOLIS—Dylan Froehlich of the Tell City Wrestling Club placed third in his weight class at the ISWA schoolboy and juniors folkstyle state tourney March 14.

    Froehlich went 5-1 to place third among 24 wrestlers in the junior 215-pound weight class.

    He registered two pins. 

    Jeff Weiss placed fifth among 35 in the junior 152 weight class.

    He went 5-2 with one pin.

    Froehlich placed second in his first freestyle tourney of the season at Mooresville last weekend.
