  • Rain may stop Marksmen’s shot at...

    Besides delaying farm crops, all the rain we have had this spring may cost Tell City’s baseball team a chance to break the school record for most victories in a season.
    Tell City is 10-2 and ranked fifth in the state in Class 2A.
    The 1997 Marksmen also started 10-2 en route to finishing with a school-record 21 wins.
    That team got 26 of its 28 scheduled regular-season games in (one that was canceled was against Bosse, which was usually an easy win in those days), going 17-9.

    FORT BRANCH—Gibson Southern used a strong bunting game to beat Tell City 3-1 in PAC girls softball Friday.
    “The way they beat us was they small-balled us,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “Both their hits were bunts and a couple errors we made were on bunts.”
    Gibson Southern, ranked No. 6 in the state in Class 3A in the coaches poll, scored an unearned run in the first inning with the help of two Tell City throwing errors on bunts.

    Hayes struck out five and walked none. The one single he gave up “was about the only hard hit ball for them,” said Zellers.
    Hayes, Derek Thomas and Andrew Harpenau each hit a single and a double to lead Perry Central’s eight-hit attack.
