  • Bulldogs edge Grace with walk-...

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Control problems kept Ethan Melton from getting the win in his first varsity baseball game. But he did get the winning hit as Cannelton edged Grace Baptist 4-3 in a baseball season opener Tuesday.
    Melton, a freshman, started on the mound and held the Defenders to one hit in the first two innings.
    But in the third inning a walk, an error by the left fielder, a single up the middle, an infield hit, and two more walks produced three runs, putting the Defenders up 3-1.

  • Rowe underclass all-state...

    TELL CITY—Tell City junior guard Hunter Rowe received honorable mention on the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association’s Underclass all-state team released Thursday.

    He hit 40.7 percent from the field, including 34.9 percent from three-point range, and 68.8 percent at the free-throw line.
    Mater Dei junior guard Devan Straub made the 15-man Underclass all-state team from Class A and 2A schools.

  • Marksman girls hope to compete...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls track team started last season with 22 girls, the most in 16 years, and that depth paid off with its highest conference finish in 26 years.
    The Marksmen have 22 girls again this year, but a lack of depth in some events may make it hard to move up from last year’s second-place PAC finish.
    They have plenty of depth in both throwing events. Kassidie Hayes returns in both after winning the regional and placing eighth in the state in the shot put.

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—With five starters returning from last year’s sectional game and some talented newcomers, Cannelton’s baseball team hopes to improve on last year’s 3-17 record.
    The Bulldogs scored 55 runs as they won their first three games last year, but they scored a total of only 10 runs in their last six games.
    New assistant coach Michael Snyder expects their offense to be more consistent this year.

  • Pitching will be key to Tell...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—The good news for Tell City’s baseball team is it is ranked 10th in the state in the coaches’ Class 2A preseason poll.
    The bad news is that is only the fourth best ranking in the Marksmen’s sectional, which remains the state’s toughest in their class.
    But they may have the pitching quality and depth needed to survive that sectional.

  • Tell City boys aim for sectional...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys track team has won four sectionals, including two in the last four years.
    But the Marksmen have never won consecutive sectionals, something they think they have a good chance to do this year.
    They graduated 11 seniors, including their top throwers and hurdler and some key distance runners, from last year’s team that was undefeated until placing second in the regional to Harrison.
