  • Guth resigns as Heritage Hills...

    Spencer County Journal-Democrat

    LINCOLN CITY—Heritage Hills girls basketball Coach Mike Guth’s resignation was accepted by North Spencer’s School Board last Monday.
    He said, “I’ve really missed out on seeing my son Nathan (age 14) and Caroline (11) play sports.
    “Basketball anymore is a year-round sport—I’m just needing a little break.”

  • New 2A schools will shake up...

    As widely expected, Southridge and Crawford County are dropping back to Class 2A from 3A next year in all IHSAA sports that have four classes.
    But what wasn’t expected by anyone I have talked to was Northeast Dubois and Springs Valley’s moving up to Class 2A from Class A. Yet that was the case when the IHSAA announced its reclassifications based on this year’s enrollment figures.
    Evansville Signature, which has yet to compete in any sports that are classed, is also listed as Class 2A in the new divisions.

  • Tell City girls finish 26th in...

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City could not match its sectional times as it finished 26th through 30th in its four events in the IHSAA girls state swim meet last weekend.
    Chelsea Malone, Amanda Wagner, Charissa Lahee and Erika Hauenstein turned in the Marksmen’s highest finish, 26th, in the 200-yard medley relay, swimming it in 1:42.35.
    That was 27-hundredths of a second slower than their sectional winning time. Had they matched their sectional time, they would have beaten Westfield and Castle and finished 24th.

    TELL CITY—Tell City sophomore center McKenzie  Hayes was named to the All-PAC girls basketball team Monday for the second year in a row.
    Hayes was the fourth leading vote-getter on the 10-girl team despite missing three conference games with stress fractures in both legs.
    When she played, though, she dominated inside at both ends of the court.
    She averaged 15.5 points and a school-record 13.4 rebounds per game and hit 51.2 percent from the field and 61.9 percent of her free throws.

    POSEYVILLE—North Posey’s shortest starter was the same height as Perry Central’s tallest one, so it was no surprise that the Vikings scored more points inside as they beat the Commodores 58-39 in boys basketball Saturday.
