    TELL CITY—Tell City probably won’t dominate the PAC girls swim meet the way it did last year. But Coach Mike Page thinks the Marksmen have a chance to win it for the fourth year in a row.
    With a veteran team the Marksmen won 11 of 12 events in the PAC last year. This year they have nine letter winners returning, six fewer than last year.
    There are six seniors and six freshmen on the 16-girl roster.

    CANNELTON—As usual depth is a concern for Cannelton’s girls basketball team, but experience is not.
    The Bulldogs have just eight players on their roster but they return five of their six letter winners from last year’s 9-11 team. Another player played two years ago.
    “I think our experience is going to be our main strength,” said Coach Mike Garrett. “We have three girls who’ve started for four years, and Mikah (Hemmings) and Allicyn (Garrett) started last year.”

    TELL CITY—With eight of its top 10 players returning from last year, Tell City’s girls basketball team hopes to improve on last year’s 6-17 record.
    McKenzie Hayes, a 6-foot-1 junior center, is the top returnee. She averaged 15.5 points and a school-record 13.4 rebounds per game last year and set a school record with 81 blocked shots despite missing seven games.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls basketball team graduated four starters, including three three-year starters, from last year’s 17-5 team that won the PLAC and set a school record for most wins.
    But the Commodores return a 6-foot-1 all-conference center and have an intriguing mix of quick, young players.
    “I really think we’re quicker overall than last year,” said Coach Bill Dickerson. “I think we’re just as quick as 75 percent of the teams we’ll play.”
