  • Trojans top Bulldogs

    OAKLAND CITY—A strong defense and attacking offense helped Wood Memorial defeat Cannelton 74-44 in the Class A girls basketball sectional finals Saturday.

    The Bulldogs had a rough game as they battled through Wood’s tight defense, which stuck close to Cannelton’s shooters and allowed them few points.

    Cannelton Coach Jeff Miller said the Trojans aggressively pushed his team during the whole game and he felt that the foul calls were “very lop-sided.”

  • Defense helps Tell City sting...

    TELL CITY—Tell City held Hancock County to 37.2 percent field-goal shooting and beat the Hornets 67-50 in boys basketball Saturday.

    Tell City trailed 12-10 after one quarter. But Andy Chinn and Jamal Noland led a second-quarter rally that put the Marksmen up 36-22 at halftime.

  • Stats don’t show Alvey...

    During the 1970 football season, coaches from several Big Ten Conference, Southeastern Conference and Pacific-8 (now Pac-10) colleges came to Tell City to scout Rick Alvey, a running back who would eventually accept a scholarship from the University of Kentucky.
