  • Hollinden 2nd in six-mile road...

    TELL CITY - Tell City boys cross country coach Chris Hollinden was the highest Perry County finisher in the Schweizer Fest road races Saturday.

    Hollinden placed second in the six-mile run in 32:37.48.

    That was just 7.48 seconds slower than his second-place time of last year but was 39.58 seconds behind winner Jeremy Kemper, a former cross country teammate of Hollinden at the University of Evansville.

    Forest Park cross country runner Ali Cooper won the women's six-mile title and finished 41st overall in 42:03.68.

  • Lassaline wins Schweizer Fest...

    TELL CITY - Erik Lassaline held off two former champions to win his first Schweizer Fest Golf Open title Sunday.

    Lassaline, a 1983 Tell City graduate who won the Big Eight Conference tourney in 1982, had been close to the top spot in the Schweizer Fest tourney several times.

    He placed second in 1997, '98 and 2000, third in 1987 and '88, fourth in 2001 and '05, and fifth in 2002.

    But this year he shot an even-par 142 to finish one stroke ahead of two-time champion Mark Flannagan and five-time champion John Stiles.

  • Marksmen expect strong spiking...

    TELL CITY - Tell City volleyball coach Dalonda Hayes says her team has strong spiking and can be a sectional contender if inexperienced back-row players come through.

    The Marksmen set a school record for most victories in a season last year as they went 24-8.

    They graduated leading spiker Dana Sibrel, who made All-PAC, from that team. But they return several players with strong frontline experience.

    They include 5-foot-11 senior Lauren Goffinet, who will start at left front, and juniors Elizabeth Kohnert, Brittney Harth, Leslie Poole and Jamie Brinksneader.

  • Perry County woman makes 471-...

    DES MOINES, Iowa - For years Earlene Preher of Leopold was one of the top distance runners in Perry County, winning several road races.

    But a knee injury a few years ago made her unable to continue her running career, so she started focusing more on bicycling. "Bicycling doesn't bother my knee one bit," she said.

    Two years ago while on vacation in Arizona she read a newspaper article about an annual bicycle ride across Iowa sponsored by a Des Moines paper, the Register.
