  • Carter, Myers to face Mountain...

    Is Forest Park boys basketball center Jordan Myers ready to face a college team that beat the University of Louisville this year?

    Is Perry Central graduate Aaron Carter ready to face a team that beat a team that beat Louisville?

    Each will get a chance next year. Carter, of course, plays for Indiana State in the Missouri Valley Conference and Myers has signed to play for Southern Illinois, another MVC team.

    And next season the Missouri Valley vs. Mountain West Conference Challenge Series starts.

  • Marksmen have three repeat MVP...

    TELL CITY—Greg Clayton, Dylan Froehlich and Lauren Goffinet were repeat Most Valuable Player award winners at Tell City’s winter sports banquet Monday.

    Clayton won the boys swimming MVP award for the second year in a row.

    Froehlich won the wrestling MVP award outright after sharing it with Greg Batie last year.

    Goffinet won the girls basketball MVP award outright after sharing it with Kara McClintic last year.

    Andy Chinn was named the boys basketball MVP and Chelsea Malone received the girls swimming MVP award.

  • Goffinet holds own in top 60

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City senior Lauren Goffinet hit the winning shot in one of her scrimmages in Hoosier Basketball Magazine’s top 60 girls workout Sunday.

    Goffinet was one of 28 players from the northern and southern parts of the state participating in the first session of the workout.

    After about 20 minutes of drills, the players were divided into four teams of seven. Each team then scrimmaged each of the other three for 10 minutes with a running clock.

  • Kieser champion as Tell City 4th...

    LINCOLN CITY—J.R. Kieser won the 120-pound title to lead Tell City to fourth place in the nine-team PAC junior high wrestling tourney Saturday.

    Gibson Southern won the team title with 299 points. Tell City scored 255.

    Paul Heldring of Pike Central scored a takedown against Kieser in the finals. But Kieser turned a second-period roll into a reversal and pinned Heldring in 1:48.

    Kieser pinned Tony Rickard of North Posey in 2:55 in the first round and beat Tony Allen of Gibson Southern 4-2 in the semifinals to finish the season 14-9.

  • Dickerson named All-PLAC

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central sophomore forward Deidra Dickerson was named to the All-PLAC girls basketball team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

    Dickerson was the only Commodore to make the 12-girl team.

    Perry Central finished fifth in the seven-team conference with a 2-4 record.

    Springs Valley finished sixth at 1-5 but placed two girls on the all-conference team.

    Conference champion Mitchell placed four girls on the team.

  • No PC boys on All-PLAC

    LEOPOLD—No Perry Central boys were named to the 12-man All-Patoka Lake Athletic Conference basketball team in the coaches’ voting Thursday.

    This is the first time since 1980-81 that Perry Central was shut out on the all-conference team.

    That year the Commodores went 0-6 in the conference and 1-20 overall—and only 10 players were named All-PLAC then.

    This year the Commodores tied for fifth in the conference with a 2-4 record and went 9-13 overall.

  • Jasper defeats Archers

    TELL CITY—Tell City won only 5 of 19 matches in a 75-21 junior high wrestling loss to Jasper Thursday.

    J.R. Kieser (120-pound weight class) and Spenser Beard (125) scored back-to-back first-period pins for Tell City.

    Mason Waninger (80), Dakota Hedinger (100) and Justin Alvarez (105) shut out their opponents to earn decisions for the Archers’ other victories.

    Tell City had to forfeit in five weight classes, including one that was a double forfeit.

  • Chinn makes All-PAC

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s Andy Chinn was named to the All-PAC boys basketball team in voting by conference coaches Monday.

    Chinn, a 5-foot-10 senior guard who also played some forward for the Marksmen, tied Brett Roesner for third place in voting on the 10-man team.

    Forest Park center Jordan Myers and Tecumseh forward-guard Kreig Oxley tied for the most votes.

    “I was very pleased with the voting,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “When you talk about the top four players in the conference, Andy’s obviously in there.”

  • Near misses this year could...

    Tell City and Perry Central came extremely close to knocking off the top two teams in their Class 2A basketball sectional last week.

    Besides giving their fans two of the most exciting games in that sectional in years, they may have also given themselves confidence that they can play with big, bad Forest Park and Mater Dei.

    Tell City and Perry Central have never beaten Mater Dei in the boys sectional.

    Perry Central has also never beaten Forest Park in the sectional in the 12 years since the class format started. And Tell City last did so in 2000.
