  • Marksmen tie Rebels'...

    TELL CITY - Jason Hackbarth scored the game-tying goal with 1:30 left as Tell City tied South Spencer's varsity soccer team 1-1 Thursday.

    Hackbarth "beat a couple of guys and went to the goal really nice" for the unassisted goal, said Tell City Coach Fred Hillenbrand.

    The Marksmen also had "some really good chances for another goal" but could not capitalize, said Hillenbrand.

    South Spencer scored its goal earlier in the game on a high ball in the box.

  • Thomas heading to regional

    JASPER - Tell City senior Amber Thomas shot a 94 in the IHSAA girls golf sectional Saturday to qualify for the regional.

    The top three teams in the nine-team sectional and the top three individuals not on those teams advanced.

    Tell City finished fifth with 477 strokes. But Thomas placed sixth overall and second among individuals not on the top three teams.

    "She hit the ball very well," said Tell City Coach Jim Meek. "Had she putted better, she had a real shot at winning it outright.

  • Southridge turns back Tell City

    TELL CITY - Tell City split three-set doubles matches but Southridge won all three singles matches to beat the Marksmen 4-1 in PAC boys tennis Tuesday.

    Andy Kast and Greg Hollinden beat Phil Buening and Tyler Messmer 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 in No. 1 doubles for Tell City's victory.

    Patrick Hagedorn and Trent Wheatley won their first set in No. 2 doubles but eventually lost to Austin Rasche and Clay McConnell 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.

  • Tell City to host Southridge

    TELL CITY - Tell City will host its fourth state-ranked opponent of the season when the Marksmen face Southridge in PAC football Friday at 6:30 p.m.

    The 4-1 Raiders are ranked eighth in Class 2A in the Associated Press media poll and ninth in the coaches poll.

    They have a fast running back in Brett Roesner, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound senior who frequently scores on long plays.

    He ran 52 yards for a touchdown in last week's 28-6 win over South Spencer and made an 81-yard touchdown run in the Raiders' overtime loss to North Posey two weeks ago.

  • Inconsistent Trojans to take on...

    OAKLAND CITY - Wood Memorial, which will host Perry Central Friday at 7 p.m., is a hard football team to evaluate this year.

    For the most part the Trojans have beaten the teams they should and lost to the ones they should. They are 1-4 but have lost to three 5-0 teams after beating 0-5 Princeton.

    However their 16-8 home loss to 1-4 Eastern Greene was somewhat unpredictable.

  • TC holds off Bulldogs

    CANNELTON - Lauren Goffinet served 17 points and made 13 kills as Tell City beat Cannelton 25-12, 25-23, 25-5 in volleyball Tuesday.

    Goffinet served the last nine points of the match - most of them unreturned. She finished with six ace serves.

    Tell City jumped to leads of 6-0 and 14-4 in the second game but Cannelton came back to tie it 23-23.

    Nakaa Myers served seven consecutive points to start that comeback and also served the tying point.

    The Marksmen scored the final two points of that game, though, when Cannelton was unable to return their hits.
