    Smitty's finished the regular season 8-0 but did not clinch the title until the final game of the season July 17, when it beat Coca-Cola 12-6. Coke entered that game with only one loss.

  • Gibson helps South defeat North...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central graduate Bo Gibson made three tackles to help the South beat the North 34-14 in Indiana's annual senior football all-star game Friday night.

    Gibson and Trey Smith of Avon alternated series playing safety in the South's 4-4 defense until Gibson sat out the last series of the game after straining a rotator cuff, an injury he first suffered in the sectional finals against Linton-Stockton last fall.

    The South completed only one touchdown pass but none in Gibson's direction.

  • Kashyab wins at Washington

    WASHINGTON - Anjan Kashyab of Tell City won the age-12-and-under boys singles title in the Daviess County Open tennis tourney last weekend.

    Since he had to play only two matches in that tourney, he also entered the 14-and-under singles division and placed second in it.

    He beat Aaron Peas of Vincennes 6-0, 6-0 and Neil Jairath OF Newburgh 6-0, 6-2 to reach the finals.

  • Tell City Hall of Fame loses 2...

    I was in favor of Tell City High School's starting its athletic hall of fame for several reasons long before it became a reality in 2004.

    For one, it should make current Marksman athletes aware that the school has a rich athletic tradition.

    But the biggest reason is it gives former superstar players and coaches a chance to reminisce with their fans and be the recipients of applause in Tell City's gym one final time.

    The importance of that is felt more keenly when a member of the school's hall of fame passes away.

  • Tell City finishes 1-2 in...

    TELL CITY - Clay County rallied for two runs in the ninth inning to beat Tell City 7-5 in the age-15 Babe Ruth southwest regional state tourney Sunday evening.

    Tell City also lost a close game to Clay County 7-5 in the first round Friday but came back to rout Bloomington 16-0 Sunday afternoon.

    Tell City made only one error against Clay County Sunday until the ninth inning and then committed three.

  • All-stars lose to Newburgh

    POSEYVILLE - Tell City 14-year-old Babe Ruth all-stars held their Newburgh opponents scoreless in the first inning of a district-tournament game Saturday in Poseyville, but their opponents "came back and started hitting in the second," and went on to win the game 16-6, according to Tell City Coach John Nelson.

    The loss eliminated Tell City from the tourney.

    Trent Nelson got a single in the first inning, then stole second, third and home to put Tell City up 1-0 in the first inning. Rain delayed the second inning, which saw Newburgh score nine runs.

    JASPER - Tell City got a chance to avenge their 7-0 loss to Newburgh Sunday, only to come up short in the Monday championship game against them.
