  • Eagles top Cannelton girls

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Portland Christian dominated the rebounding and defeated Cannelton 47-43 in girls basketball Saturday.

    The Bulldogs grabbed only 18 rebounds and committed 27 turnovers. They hit 32.1 percent (17 of 53) from the field.

    They got off to a cold start, scoring only one point in the first 5:22 as they fell behind 8-1.

    Still they rallied from a 12-point deficit to close the gap to two points in the final minute.

    Nakaa Myers hit a 15-footer out front and Jaci Garrett hit 1 of 2 free throws to make the score 45-43 with 10.5 seconds left.

  • Tell City girls split two games

    TELL CITY - Tell City hit only 6 of 42 shots from two-point range as it lost to North Posey 57-53 in a battle of PAC girls basketball contenders Saturday.

    The Marksmen shot well from farther out, hitting 9 of 13 from three-point range and 14 of 19 free throws.

    But their lack of inside offense against the tall Vikings hurt.

    The Marksmen led 43-41 after three quarters but "we didn't move the ball very well in the fourth quarter against their 2-2-1 half-court trap," said Tell City Coach John Lyons.

  • TC goes inside to beat Panthers

    CORYDON - Tell City shot a lot of layups and hit 62.5 percent from the field to beat Corydon 50-33 in freshman basketball Thursday.

    The Marksmen hit 20 of 32 shots from the field but made only 10 of 24 free throws.

    "Our outside shot was not falling as well as it has the last few games," said Tell City Coach Dan Lacy. "But we got quite a few layups off our press and in our half-court offense off penetration."

  • Baseball tourney changes good...

    Thanks to a change announced by the IHSAA Friday, many Indiana high school baseball players and coaches (and sportswriters) will actually get Memorial Day off beginning in 2009.

    This area's Class 2A baseball sectional (including Tell City and Perry Central) has scheduled first-round games on Memorial Day since 1999. At first it was because the sectional had to share its home, Huntingburg's League Stadium, with a professional baseball team, the Dubois County Dragons.

  • McClintic, defense propel Tell...

    REO - Kara McClintic had 12 points and 10 assists as Tell City beat South Spencer 54-36 in PAC girls basketball Thursday.

    McClintic "could have had 15 assists - I'm not exaggerating - we missed that many layups," said Tell City Coach John Lyons. "But we played a nice game overall. We played good defense."

    Tell City outshot the Rebels from the field 46.2 percent to 31.8 percent.

    The Marksmen hit better outside than inside, as they made 4 of 5 three-point shots.

  • Orleans holds off Commodores

    LEOPOLD - Orleans, ranked No. 1 in the state in Class A, used several backdoor layups to hit 81.1 percent from the field and beat Perry Central 76-66 in PLAC boys basketball Friday.

    Jacob Smith scored 30 points for the Bulldogs. Most came on backdoor layups as the Commodores' defense broke down.

    Orleans missed only two shots from the floor in the second half, hitting 14 of 16.

    Nick Huber hit a three-point shot from the left side of the key with 3:13 left in the third quarter to pull the Commodores within 48-47.

    That was as close as they would get.

  • Tell City outshoots Hornets

    HAWESVILE, Ky. - Tell City hit 60.5 percent from the field and beat Hancock County 69-56 in boys basketball Friday.

    Hancock County also shot well, hitting 52.2 percent from the field.

    Both teams worked the ball inside for most of their shots - they combined to make only one three-point basket.

    Nineteen of Hancock County's 24 field goals came from within 9 feet of the basket, including the first 13 the Hornets made.

    Senior guard Garrett Helm used good penetration to make nine inside shots before he hit an 18-footer and a 13-footer late in the third quarter.

  • Tell City wrestlers 0-5 at Reitz

    EVANSVILLE - Tell City's wrestling team usually scores well in the lower weight classes. But the Marksmen were shorthanded there Saturday and they went 0-5 in Reitz's round-robin tourney.

    They lost 75-0 to Castle, which is ranked eighth in the state, and 71-3 to Reitz, which is ranked seventh.

    They also lost to Evansville Central 54-15, North Posey 48-30, and Mount Vernon 56-18.

    "Mount Vernon has a good team too - they'll win the Big Eight (Conference)," said Tell City Coach Joe Litherland. "But we had too many holes and we didn't wrestle very well either."

  • Garrett records triple double as...

    CLOVERPORT, Ky. - Jaci Garrett amassed a statistical triple double without scoring a point as Cannelton beat Cloverport 48-12 in girls basketball Tuesday.

    Garrett, a sophomore forward, grabbed 15 rebounds, made 13 steals, and had 10 assists.

    Her steal total tied the school record set by Theresa Alvey against Faith Heritage Jan. 29, 2002.

    Nakaa Myers led Cannelton in scoring with 19 points and Brianna Simpson added 12. Myers hit 9 of 14 from the field.

    No one scored more than four points for Cloverport, 0-10.
