    On the Wolfpack’s next possession, Dustin Bowling missed a free throw.  Unfortunately for the Commodores, he got the rebound and scored three points on a basket and free throw.

  • Paoli blitzes Tell City

    PAOLI—Tell City played a strong first quarter but followed that with two bad quarters in a 76-52 boys basketball loss to Paoli Saturday.

    The Marksmen had a nice inside-outside balance the first quarter.

    Center Jesse Stow scored six points inside and Jordan Rhodes was 3 for 3 on three-point shooting (with Stow getting kick-out assists on two of them) as the Marksmen built a 22-17 first-quarter lead on 9 for 14 field-goal shooting.

  • Goffinet breaks scoring record...

    TELL CITY—Lauren Goffinet became Tell City’s career girls basketball scoring leader but the Marksmen lost to Heritage Hills 56-48 Tuesday.

    Goffinet scored 19 points to give her 1,116 for her career. The previous school record was 1,110 held by 1998 graduate Kara Kessans.

    Goffinet broke the record when she hit a three-point shot with about 30 seconds left in the third quarter. She hit it off the dribble after grabbing a defensive rebound at the other end.

    The game was stopped, and she was presented the game ball.

    LEOPOLD—Jaycee Guillaume and Lauren Goffinet each scored six points in the last four minutes as Tell City beat Perry Central 51-47 in girls basketball Monday.

    The game was tied four times in the fourth quarter, the last time when Perry Central’s Hilarie Hahus hit a 7-foot baseline shot to make it 39-39.

    A rebound basket by Guillaume, a 9-footer in transition by Goffinet, and two free throws by Goffinet then gave Tell City a 45-39 lead with 0:34 left.

    A.J. Flynn (119-pound class) and Dylan Froehlich (215) placed second.

    Andy Kast (130), Justin Kleemann (160) and Dustin Gould (189) placed third.

    Matt Leistner (171) placed fourth to also qualify for the regional. But he will not compete in it due to a knee injury.

  • Alvey, Kessans, Werner elected...

    TELL CITY—Rick Alvey, Kara Kessans and Paul Werner have been elected to Tell City High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

    They will be inducted at a catered banquet at Tell City High School’s cafeteria Feb. 21 and introduced at halftime of Tell City’s boys basketball game with North Posey later that night.

    To be eligible for the hall, athletes have to have graduated from Tell City at least 10 years ago.

    Kessans, a 1998 graduate, is the first athlete to be elected in her first year of eligibility since the hall’s initial class in 2004.

  • Harpenau ranks seventh in nation...

    WEST LAFAYETTE—Tell City graduate Ben Harpenau is currently ranked seventh in the nation in the weight throw and hopes to contend for Big Ten Conference titles in that and the hammer throw this year.

    That’s pretty impressive, considering he never got to compete in those events in high school.

    For safety and liability reasons Indiana is one of many states that don’t offer those events in high school track.
