  • Cougars hold off PC in mud bowl

    LEOPOLD—Fumbles and blocked punts that probably would not have happened on a dry field played key roles in North Daviess’ 14-7 win over Perry Central in Class A football sectional semifinals Friday.

    Though the game featured two of the top five Class A teams in the state, each team fumbled six times and lost three on the extremely muddy field made worse by rain falling steadily throughout the game.

  • North Posey's big second...

    POSEYVILLE—Tell City traveled to North Posey in the second round of Class 2A football sectional action Friday, but after a day of heavy rain the Marksmen were bogged down in the Posey County mud.

    Tell City lost the game 21-0.

    Action started out positive for Tell City after North Posey fumbled on the first play from scrimmage and it was recovered by the Marksmen.

    Tell City could not move the ball, though, and turned it back over to North Posey on downs.

    Neither offense could cross the goal line in the first quarter.

  • Wilgus leads TC at Newburgh

    NEWBURGH—Ross Wilgus won one freestyle race to lead the Tell City Swim Club in the Newburgh Fall Fling Invitational Oct. 24-25.

    Tell City finished eighth among eight teams, as several Tell City swimmers were available to compete only one day of the meet.

    Wilgus won the age-6-and-under boys 25-yard freestyle in 23.70 seconds.

    He also would have won the 50 backstroke but was disqualified for an improper flip turn.

    Amanda Wagner placed fourth in the 13-and-older girls 100 breaststroke in 1:13.06.

    TELL CITY—Tell City senior middle hitter Elizabeth Kohnert was named to the All-PAC volleyball team chosen by conference coaches Monday.

    Kohnert led the Marksmen in kills with 301 and blocks with 112. “I would say probably 60 to 70 of those were solo blocks,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

    Added Hayes, “She’s got a lot of natural athletic ability. Since I’ve been here she’s probably my best blocker ever—her timing’s great.

  • Perry Central boys qualify for...

    NASHVILLE—Eric Scheiber placed 13th to lead Perry Central to fourth place in the 20-team Brown County boys cross country semistate Saturday.
