  • Kast turns down chance to play...

    Tell City graduate Kris Kast attended two weeks of spring practice with Notre Dame's football team recently and found out he could have made the team. But he declined because he wants to concentrate on academics.

    When one of the top football programs in the country finishes with a worst ever 3-9 record, as Notre Dame did last fall, apparently it looks for new players everywhere, including among students already on campus.

    So 30 potential walk-ons reported for the first day of spring practice.

  • New Tell City girls tennis coach...

    TELL CITY - Nick Weyer has experience beating Tell City as a tennis player. Now he is trying to help the Marksman girls win as their new coach.

    Weyer, a 2003 Forest Park graduate, was a four-year varsity starter for the Rangers' boys tennis team, playing No. 2 doubles as a freshman and No. 1 doubles the next three years. All four years his doubles squad beat Tell City in straight sets.

    Succeeding Bob Kreilein, who decided to coach only the boys tennis team this school year, Weyer inherits four returning starters from last year's 6-8 team.

  • Baseball Bulldogs have 4th coach...

    CANNELTON - Cannelton's fourth baseball coach in four years will try to improve on last year's 2-16 record.

    Mike Garrett, who played for the Bulldogs in the late 1980s, takes over the team's helm. He replaces Matt Goffinet, who is still going to college and was recently hired as an assistant football coach at Tell City.

    The Bulldogs had three coaches in three years 1989-91 and still won sectionals all three of those years.

  • Tell City softball team has mix...

    TELL CITY - Tell City's girls softball team returns five starters from last year's 12-12 team but may also start two sophomores and two freshmen.

    And three of the returning starters will be playing different positions than last year, though they are positions they played extensively last summer.

    New coach Dusty Beard, a longtime assistant with the Marksmen, expects pitching and defense to be among the team's strengths.

  • McClintic, Goffinet earn all-...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Two Tell City players have received honorable mention on the first girls basketball all-state team chosen by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

    The IBCA selected a 15-girl senior team and a 15-girl underclass team (freshmen through juniors).

    Approximately 75 players received honorable mention on each list.

    Kara McClintic received honorable mention on the senior team and junior Lauren Goffinet made the underclass honorable mention list.

  • Red Sox should repeat

    Many sportswriters are picking Boston to win the World Series this year, which is kind of unusual for the Red Sox.

    When they won the world title in 2004 and last year, virtually no one had predicted they would.

    Even I was unsure last year, as Detroit looked to be a solid contender to dethrone them in the American League, though as it turned out injuries to Kenny Rogers and Gary Sheffield kept the Tigers from even making the playoffs.

  • Tell City defense looks strong...

    TELL CITY - Finding some pitching depth and a catcher to go with the rest of the Marksmen's strong up-the-middle defense are keys for Tell City's baseball team.

    The Marksmen will have their third starting catcher in three years despite not graduating any of them.

    Two years ago Michael DuPre started there as a sophomore, but last year he was unable to catch because he was coming off knee surgery. He is slated to play first base this year.

    Mike Maddle started at catcher last year as a freshman and was second on the team in hitting, but he has moved to Gibson Southern.
