  • Kast, Hollinden advance in...

    JASPER - Tell City's Andy Kast and Greg Hollinden beat Cole Samples and Addison Hill of Evansville North 6-2, 6-4 in the No. 1 doubles boys tennis sectional Wednesday.

    The victory gave Kast and Hollinden a six-match winning streak.

    They advanced to the finals Saturday, where they were scheduled to play Chris Campbell and Tanner Niehaus of Jasper.

    The winner of that match will face the winner of the Silver Creek doubles sectional at the doubles regional at Carmel this Saturday.

    That will be followed by the state finals the following weekend at Park Tudor.

  • Chinn named to All-PAC team

    TELL CITY - Tell City senior Andy Chinn was named to the All-PAC boys tennis team in voting by conference coaches last week.

    Chinn played No. 1 singles for the Marksmen all season and compiled a 5-3 record in conference matches.

    He was 11-7 overall. He won his match against Heritage Hills, a PAC opponent, in the team sectional, though Tell City lost to the Patriots. So he advanced to the individual sectional for No. 1 singles players.

    His season ended there with a 6-4, 6-4 loss to Justin Poirier of Evansville North Wednesday.

  • Blackhawks outserve PC

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central had trouble handling Springs Valley's serves in a 25-16, 25-17, 25-9 PLAC volleyball loss to the Blackhawks Thursday.

    "Tonight we needed to improve our serve-receive," said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet. "But they had some very strong servers."

    Genet also mentioned that the Commodores "have to hit the ball in," as several of their spikes went out of bounds.

    "But at the same time we did some things very well tonight. We saved more balls than usual."

    Hilarie Hahus made 12 digs for the Commodores and Jessica Huber added eight.

  • Tell City outspikes Paoli

    PAOLI - Leslie Poole and Julie Davis each made 15 digs as Tell City beat Paoli 25-18, 25-15, 25-13 in volleyball Thursday.

    Lauren Goffinet added 11 digs and Catelyn Zuelly made 10.

    "Our passing was a lot better tonight," said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. "If we can pass, we can win."

    The digs helped lead to 10 kills apiece for Goffinet and Elizabeth Kohnert. Brittney Harth added five.

    Davis set the ball for 21 assists and also made four blocks. Goffinet made five blocks.

  • Titans pull away from TC in 2nd...

    TELL CITY - Gibson Southern rushed for 491 yards, including 319 in the second half, to defeat Tell City 41-18 in PAC football Friday.

    Tell City stayed right with the Titans in the first half. The Marksmen had only four fewer rushing yards than the Titans and each team scored two touchdowns.

    Only the Marksmen's inability to convert extra points - they missed a kick and came up short on a run--gave Gibson Southern a two-point lead at halftime.

  • PC rushers pummel Springs Valley

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central scored on its first 10 possessions to crush Springs Valley 68-0 in PLAC football Friday.

    The Commodores built a 54-0 halftime lead over the winless Blackhawks.

    The entire second half was played with a constantly running clock.

    The only time the Commodores did not score was on their last possession, when they took a knee three times to run out the clock.

    They did most of their damage on the ground. Quarterback Austin Hauser threw only two passes and completed one.

  • Forest Park spikes Commodores

    FERDINAND - Camille Hagedorn made 10 kills as Forest Park beat Perry Central 25-16, 25-9, 25-22 in volleyball Tuesday.

    Jessica Huber led Perry Central with six kills and two blocks. Megan Hedinger added five kills and Deidra Dickerson made four.

    Sloan Harpenau had 11 assists and Tessa Lynch added six.

    Lynch and Hilarie Hahus each made nine digs for the Commodores. Hahus served two aces.

    Forest Park won the junior varsity match 25-12, 25-12. Dickerson and Olivia Schroeder each made three kills for Perry Central.

  • TC boys 2nd at Dubois

    DUBOIS - Tell City placed six boys in the top 20 as it finished second among 11 complete teams in a cross country invitational Tuesday.

    Tell City placed three runners in the top 12 in the girls race to finish fourth among nine teams.

    Alex Fenn led the Marksmen in the boys race, placing ninth in 17:35.

    Nick Bower was 12th in 17:50, Jordan Alvey 14th in 17:52, Devin McDaniel 17th in 17:59, and Darian Allen 18th in 18:00 to complete the Marksmen's scoring.

    Jeremy Kellems, their sixth man, was 19th in 18:01.

  • PC, TC draw home games

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central and Tell City drew first-round home games in the IHSAA football sectional drawings Tuesday.

    The Commodores will host 1-6 Wood Memorial in a Class A first-round game 7 p.m. Oct. 24.

    They will also likely have a second-round game at home against 5-2 North Daviess, which is heavily favored to beat 0-7 Springs Valley in their first-round matchup.

    If the Commodores survive that game, they would have to go on the road for the championship game.

  • Tell City will try to stop...

    TELL CITY - Gibson Southern's double-threat quarterback will test Tell City's defense when the two meet in PAC football Friday at 7 p.m.

    Cory Michel, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior, quarterbacks the 3-4 Titans. He is ninth in southwestern Indiana in passing yardage with 708 yards. He has completed 66 of 131 passes for 50.4 percent.

    But in last week's 63-20 win over Pike Central he scored five touchdowns on runs of 42, 41, 1, 72 and 52 yards.

    Excelling in both areas is not new for Michel, as he passed for over 1,000 yards last year and also ran for over 1,000 yards.
