  • 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...
