  • TC girls team lacks depth

    TELL CITY - Tell City's girls cross country team has some strong runners but has little margin for error, as there are only six girls on the team.

    The Marksmen started last season with 13 girls but graduated three seniors and brought in only one freshman this year.

    And their top runner from last year, Sidney Strobel, has moved to Harrison.

    This is the second time in three years the Marksmen have had a star runner move away after her freshman season.

  • Tell City boys favored to win...

    TELL CITY - Despite heavy graduation losses, Tell City boys cross country coach Chris Hollinden thinks "we have a shot at being better than last year."

    The Marksmen graduated six seniors, including five who lettered, last year. "We lost a really deep senior class," said Hollinden. "So we have a pretty inexperienced team."

    They return No. 1 runner Alex Fenn, though. He has won the PAC meet the last two years and placed eighth in the Bedford semistate last year to qualify for the state meet, where he finished 53rd.

  • Wildcats shut out TC

    TELL CITY - Mount Vernon held Tell City to 2 yards of total offense and beat the Marksmen 45-0 in a football season opener Friday.

    Tell City tailback Trent Gunn rushed for 34 yards on 14 carries.

    But some losses by teammates, including the quarterback's being sacked three times on the first two possessions, reduced the Marksmen's net rushing gain to 5 yards.

    And they lost 3 yards on their only completed pass.

    They did not gain a first down the entire game.
