    They also committed 11 turnovers in the first half, including nine in the second quarter. They had 18 turnovers for the game.

  • Basketball sectional drawings...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Tell City and Cannelton drew first-round byes but Perry Central will have to go the long route to win its boys basketball sectional next week.

    Pairings for all 64 sectionals in the state were drawn by the IHSAA Sunday evening.

    Perry Central and Tell City will compete in the Class 2A sectional that will once again be held at Huntingburg Memorial Gym (though Forest Park is the designated host, as Southridge now competes in Class 3A).

  • Goffinet, McClintic make All-PAC...

    TELL CITY - Lauren Goffinet and Kara McClintic of Tell City were named to the All-PAC girls basketball team in voting by conference coaches Monday.

    Tell City, which tied for second in the nine-team league, was one of three teams to place two players on the squad.

    Tell City Coach John Lyons said he was pleased to get two players on it. "With nine teams in the conference now (since Forest Park joined it this year) and only 10 spots open (for all-conference), that doesn't leave a lot of room."

  • Marksmen shut down Patriots in...

    TELL CITY - Strong defense and rebounding carried Tell City past Heritage Hills 65-33 in PAC boys basketball Tuesday.

    The Marksmen held Heritage Hills to single-digit scoring in every quarter.

    They outshot the Patriots from the field 48.9 percent to 32.5 percent and outrebounded them 31-23, holding the Patriots to just four offensive rebounds.

    Still the Marksmen led only 20-15 at halftime, as they got off to a sluggish start on offense themselves.

    They hit only 8 of 25 shots from the field in the first half as they rarely got the ball inside.

  • Young Abe was Perry County'...

    Were it not for John Wilkes Booth's bullets, Abraham Lincoln might have turned 199 last week (hey, you never know - people are living longer).

    Committees in Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois - the three states in which he lived - already have plans in high gear for Lincoln's 200th birthday celebration.

    Tell City is also gearing up for a celebration of its own, this summer's 150th anniversary of the town's founding.

  • Chargers nip Tell City thanks to...

    TELL CITY - Pike Central took advantage of some Tell City lapses on defense and beat the Marksmen 65-64 in overtime in PAC boys basketball Thursday.

    On paper the game appeared to be a huge mismatch in Tell City's favor. The Marksmen entered the game with a 13-5 record while Pike Central was 5-11 and had won just one PAC game - that by one point.

    The Chargers had lost at home by 33 points to Southridge, a team Tell City beat on the road.

    But the Chargers outshot Tell City from the field 52.4 percent to 43.4 percent and won the rebound battle 28-25.

    The game featured seven lead changes in the fourth quarter and four in the last minute alone.

    Wes Linette scored inside on an assist from Zach Rogier with 0:20 left to put Perry Central ahead 67-66.

    The Rams then pushed the ball upcourt to Laswell, who scored on a drive and was fouled. He also made the free throw.

  • Marksmen fall short vs. Austin...

    FERDINAND - Katy McIntosh's strong drives in the third quarter lifted Austin past Tell City 65-52 in the first round of the Class 2A girls basketball regional Saturday.

    Tell City scored the first four points of the third quarter on two free throws apiece by Kara McClintic and Lauren Goffinet to take a 29-27 lead with 5:51 left in that period.
