  • Marian signs Gehlhausen

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central senior Audra Gehlhausen has signed a national letter of intent to run track and cross country for Marian College.

    Gehlhausen, who was also recruited by Manchester, said she chose the Indianapolis school because "I liked their coaches better and I liked the girls on the team."

    Dave Roberts, Marian's track and cross country coach, said, "I think she has a real good chance to run in our top five (in cross country) as a freshman."

  • Ress pitches, hits TC past Jeeps...

    DUBOIS - Josalyn Ress pitched a two-hitter as Tell City shut out Northeast Dubois 5-0 in girls softball Friday.

    Ress struck out six and walked none, and her teammates backed her with errorless defense.

    She also went 3 for 3 with a double to lead Tell City's nine-hit attack.

    Tell City batters struck out four times - their fourth consecutive game with four or fewer strikeouts.

    "We do put the ball in play - that's one of our strengths," said Tell City Coach Dusty Beard.

  • Marksmen should like their draw...

    Drawing the first-round bye in next week's Class 2A South Spencer baseball sectional should make Tell City's team happy.

    But perhaps an even bigger plus for the Marksmen was they did not draw one of their three fellow PAC teams in the sectional.

    Going into Friday's game at Floyd Central, the Marksmen were 1-6 against PAC opponents (counting a second loss to South Spencer, which did not count in conference standings) and 9-1 against teams outside the PAC.

  • Pfeifer breaks jaw in 6-5 Tell...

    FLOYDS KNOBS - Despite outhitting Floyd Central 12-5, Tell City lost a baseball game and possibly a key player Friday.

    Floyd Central won 6-5, taking advantage of three Tell City errors, four walks, and a close call at first base that went against Tell City to end the game with the tying run on third base.

    But of more concern to the Marksmen was Cody Pfeifer's getting hit in the face by a pitch and breaking his jaw in the seventh inning.

    "He's going into surgery tomorrow (Saturday) morning," said Tell City Coach Phil DeSpain.

  • Huber, Kessinger double winners...

    JASPER - Perry Central's Nick Huber and Tell City's Kyle Kessinger each won two individual events in the boys track sectional Thursday.

    Perry Central also won the 3200-meter relay and finished fourth among 11 schools in team standings with 88 points.

    Tell City finished sixth with 62.5 points and Cannelton, with just one boy competing, was 11th with 2 points.

    Northeast Dubois won with 115 points.

    Most times and distances were not great because of the wet track conditions.

  • Sibrel wins twice in sectional

    LEOPOLD - Dana Sibrel won both throwing events to lead Tell City to sixth place in the 10-team girls track sectional Tuesday.

    Elizabeth Kohnert won the high jump to give Tell City first place in three of the four field events the Marksmen entered (they do not compete in the pole vault, as Tell City does not have any pole vault equipment).

    Jasper won the sectional with 142 points, a half a point ahead of runner-up Forest Park. Tell City scored 52 points and Perry Central was seventh with 30.

  • Marksmen fall to Vikings, Cougars

    TELL CITY - Tell City had 15 hits, including two home runs and three doubles, but lost to North Posey 10-8 in PAC girls softball Monday.

    North Posey had only nine hits but also took advantage of six walks and five Tell City errors.

    Tell City took a 4-3 lead on Lauren Goffinet's two-run double to the left-field corner in the fourth inning. It followed a double by Paige Gelarden and a walk to Josalyn Ress.

    But North Posey regained the lead for good with five runs in the fifth inning on four hits, two errors and two walks.

  • Cannelton gets shut out three...

    WASHINGTON - Cannelton had only four hits in three games as it was shut out in baseball twice Saturday and once Monday.

    The Bulldogs lost 10-0 and 2-0 to Washington Catholic in a doubleheader Saturday.

    They lost another road game at Wood Memorial 10-0 Monday.

    "We're putting the ball in play - it's just right at someone," said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.

    The Bulldogs also had some defensive problems, committing six errors in the first game Saturday, two in the second game, and six Monday.

  • TC splits Saturday games

    TELL CITY - Cody Pfeifer pitched a nine-inning four-hitter as Tell City beat Mount Vernon 2-1 in baseball Saturday.

    Pfeifer struck out a season-high 11 and walked two. He threw only 120 pitches in the nine innings.

    "His fastball was hitting spots and he had a good breaking ball," said Tell City Coach Phil DeSpain. "He pitched a heck of a ballgame."

    Pfeifer also had two of the Marksmen's six hits and drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

    With one out in that inning Tommy McCallister doubled off the left-field fence.

  • PC second, TC third

    ENGLISH - A bad first hole kept Perry Central from winning a boys triangular golf match Tuesday.

    Crawford County won with 167 strokes. Perry Central shot 171 and Tell City 183.

    "We were only four strokes behind Crawford County - that's as close as we've ever been to them," said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. "And our four scorers were a combined 9 over par on the first hole, a par-5. If we just bogey it, that trims five strokes and we win the match."

    Travis Goffinet led Perry Central with a 4-over-par 40.
