    BOONVILLE—Corey Young shot a 6-over-par 77 to lead Tell City to 10th in the 12-team Warrick Invitational boys golf tourney at Quail Crossing Saturday.

    Tell City shot 373 to beat Tecumseh and North Posey and finish just one shot behind Bosse. Evansville Central won with 295 and Castle and Evansville Memorial each shot 305.

    Young finished 11th among 60 golfers with his best 18-hole score ever.

    He also shot his best nine-hole score ever, an even-par 36, on the back nine.

    He birdied the par-4 No. 10 hole and par-5 No. 18 hole.

  • Newton double winner in PAC

    MITCHELL—Alex Newton won two individual races and was part of a school-record-setting relay to lead Perry Central to third place in the PLAC junior high boys track meet Saturday.

    Newton won the 800-meter run in 2:18.38 and the 1600 in 4:58. He broke his own school record in the 1600 by one second.

    He teamed with Logan Dauby, Jacob Schank and Levi Hilgenhold to win the 1600 relay in 4:02, setting a school record.

    In the girls meet Cathryn Peter won the 1600 in 6:03 and Ashley Gengelbach had a second-place finish and two thirds as Perry Central placed second.

  • Marksmen flat in loss to North...

    TELL CITY—North Posey had 11 hits, including five for extra bases, as it beat Tell City 8-4 in PAC baseball Thursday.

    The Vikings had at least one hit in every inning but the fifth.

    They also took advantage of three Tell City errors, including two in the second inning when they scored two unearned runs.

    The loss ended Tell City’s five-game winning streak.

    “We got on a little roll there and I think we got a little too confident,” said Tell City Coach Mark Wahl. “We didn’t play any facet of the game well today.

  • Tell City boys run past Boonville

    TELL CITY—Jamal Noland won three individual events to lead Tell City past Boonville 72-51 in boys track Thursday.

    Noland won the 100-meter dash in 11.04 seconds and the 200 in 23.32.

    He also won the long jump by going 19 feet, 9 inches on his first attempt.

    He did not compete in the high jump, as his back had been bothering him recently. Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden said he believes it is healed but he did not want to take any chances with the conference meet coming up.

    Jordan Alvey won the 800 run in 2:06.04 and ran on two winning relays.

  • Boonville outruns TC girls

    TELL CITY—Tiffany Davis, Elizabeth Kohnert and Katlyn Braunecker each won two individual events but Tell City lost to Boonville 65-58 in girls track Thursday.

    Tell City won nine of the 15 events but lost because of a lack of depth.

    Davis set a personal record as she won the 1600-meter run in 5:33. Sarah Goffinet placed second in 6:01 and Brittany Waninger third in 6:34 as Tell City swept all three places in the 1600.

    Davis won the 800 in 2:41.21 and Waninger placed third in 2:56.9.

  • Titans nip Tell City

    FORT BRANCH—Gibson Southern scored two runs without a hit in the fourth inning and edged Tell City 3-2 in PAC girls softball Thursday.

    A walk, an infield throwing error, and an outfield error produced the Titans’ runs that inning.

    They scored their first run in the second inning on a bases-loaded squeeze bunt.

    They tried another squeeze bunt later in the game. But Tell City pitcher Josalyn Ress fielded it with her bare hand instead of her glove and was able to cut down the runner at the plate.

  • Beach's successor at Forest...

    Tom Beach told the media that his decision to leave Forest Park to become Shelbyville’s basketball coach has nothing to do with the fact that Perry Nash, Beach’s future son-in-law and one of his assistants, is in danger of not having his teaching contract renewed.

    Many in Dubois County do not believe that.

    It is possible that Beach, 51, wanted a new challenge at a larger school, though he is taking on a new coaching position at an age when most coaches are getting ready to get out of that profession.

  • Gunn, Osborne power Tell City to...

    CANNELTON—Trent Gunn drove in five runs as Tell City rolled past Cannelton 23-3 in the first game of a baseball doubleheader Tuesday.

    Kyle Osborne hit two three-run homers—one inside the park and one over the fence—as Tell City won the second game 16-8.

    “In all the games I’ve ever been in, that’s the first time I’ve ever seen it,” said Tell City Coach Mark Wahl of a player hitting an inside-the-park homer and a over-the-fence one in the same game. “Especially for a 225-pound catcher.

  • Back on track

    CANNELTON—In 1955 and ’56 Cannelton’s Marvin Sturgeon won the state title in the 880-yard dash, setting a national record along the way.

    But Cannelton’s track and field program has gradually decreased in size and importance since then.

    In recent years the Bulldogs have usually had only one or two athletes of each gender participating in track. They have never scored a point in the 35-year history of girls track sectionals, and their last boys regional qualifier was Aaron Schroeder in 1998.

  • Perry Central third in triangular

    FRENCH LICK—Charlie Weatherholt shot a 6-over-par 42 as Perry Central finished third in a boys triangular golf match Tuesday.

    Springs Valley won with 160 strokes on its home Donald Ross (hill) course. Salem shot 174 and Perry Central 181.

    Weatherholt birdied the par-4, No. 8 hole.

    Other Commodore scorers were Zach Graves with a 43, Logan Shearn 47, and Brad Douglas 49.

    Reuben A. Schwartz was their fifth man with a 51.
