    TELL CITY—Tell City’s wrestling team is still young, but with a strong freshman class and a few good returnees the Marksmen should be much improved - if they can stay healthy.
    Last year the Marksmen went 4-18 in the regular season and were seventh in the nine-team PAC tourney and 10th in the 10-team Castle sectional.
    They started the season with 12 wrestlers but due to injuries had just six active for the postseason tourneys.

    The Marksmen placed sixth in four relays, with Brea Haller, their only senior, swimming on three of them.
    Emma Armstrong, Sam Stephens, Haller and Maddie Rogers were sixth in the 200 medley relay in 2:34.33.
