  • 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.

    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.

    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—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.

  • Morris named Cannelton’s MVP

    CANNELTON—Jayden Morris was named Cannelton’s boys basketball Most Valuable Player in the school’s winter sports banquet March 18.
    The MVP award was voted on by the team.
    Morris, a senior center, also received the rebounding award and shared the leading scorer award with Damon Powers, as each averaged 10.1 points per game.
    Powers received the assists award. Deven Reynolds was named the team’s most improved player in a team vote, and Caleb Cravens and Adam Terry shared the free-throw shooting award for each hitting at least 75 percent.

    TELL CITY—After last season’s 0-19 record, “there’s nowhere to go but up,” said Tell City girls softball coach Maggie Schuetter.
    Several young players will help the Marksmen aim in that direction, as there are nine freshmen on the 16-girl roster.
    There are only four seniors, including one transfer student and one who did not play last year. Only four players return from last year’s team.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls softball team will have a whole new infield and new pitcher as it tries to win its third consecutive PLAC title this year.
    Miranda Claise, who made All-PLAC the last two years as a pitcher, is now pitching for Lincoln Trail College.
    The three girls vying to replace her don’t have her velocity or variety of pitches yet. So more balls may be put in play against them and hit to the outfield.

    This is probably the shortest All-Perry County boys basketball team in the 38 years that the News has been naming them.
