    TELL CITY—Tell City has its smallest girls swim team in nine years and one of its least experienced.
    There are only five letter winners on the Marksmen’s 12-girl roster. “We had about five letter winners not come back,” noted Tell City Coach Mike Page.
    There is only one freshman, diver Alesa Roark, on the team. But of the three seniors, five juniors and three sophomores, five are first-year swimmers.

  • Trojans top Perry Central

    OAKLAND CITY—Perry Central hit only 24.4 percent from the field in a 61-37 season-opening girls basketball loss to Wood Memorial Tuesday.
    The Commodores also had problems with Wood Memorial’s full-court press, committing 14 first-half turnovers.
    “We didn’t shoot very well and we had way too many unforced turnovers,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume. “At times we did a good job breaking the press but then we’d miss a layup.

    INDIANAPOLIS—Perry Central setter Grace James has been named to the ICGSA Class 2A volleyball all-state first team for the second year in a row.
    Perry Central middle hitter Jordan Sprinkle made the second team.

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls basketball team will feature plenty of height and a strong post game this season. And it could be even stronger if Kassidie Hayes is cleared to play.
    Hayes, a 6-foot center/forward, led the 8-15 Marksmen with 10.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game and 53.7 percent field-goal shooting last year.

    CANNELTON—South Spencer’s defense forced 45 turnovers as the Rebels trounced Cannelton 66-7 in a girls basketball season opener Tuesday.
    The Rebels opened with a full-court press and forced 16 turnovers in the first quarter as they jumped to a 24-0 lead.
    They did not press the rest of the game but still made a lot of steals in their half-court zone defense. Some were the result of playing the passing lanes well and on some they just took the ball away from a Cannelton player.
