  • Lanesville's aggressive...

    LANESVILLE - Lanesville hit 21 field goals from within six feet of the basket and beat Cannelton 92-43 in boys basketball Saturday.

    The Eagles used their quickness and aggressive 2-2-1 full-court press to get some layups off steals.

    They also got some layups beating Cannelton's press or simply getting down the floor quickly after a Cannelton miss. They also made some nice drives in their half-court sets.

    They hit 75.0 percent from the field overall, including 7 of 12 from three-point range, while holding Cannelton to 23.1 percent shooting.

  • Marksmen pull away from PC in...

    REO - Kara McClintic scored 12 points in the last 6:02 as Tell City pulled away to a 52-44 win over Tell City in the PSC Classic girls basketball tourney Monday.

    Tell City led only 33-31 before McClintic started her hot streak with a driving basket and free throw.

    After the teams exchanged two-pointers - a 15-footer by Rachael Rayford for Perry Central and a nice spinning drive by Lauren Goffinet for Tell City - McClintic scored five consecutive points on a three-point shot from the corner and a driving layup.

  • Orleans beats Perry Central

    LEOPOLD - Orleans center Cassie Adams scored 20 points as the Bulldogs beat Perry Central 51-39 in PLAC girls basketball Thursday.

    Adams hit a lot of 5-foot shots "when they set a screen on Alie" Schroeder, Perry Central's center and no other defender switched to Adams in time to stop her, said Perry Central Coach Sarah Spindler.

    Junior guard Emily Grace added 13 points for the Bulldogs.

    Perry Central's loss overshadowed a 23-point, 25-rebound, four-blocked-shots performance by Schroeder.

  • Raiders overtake Tell City boys

    TELL CITY - Greg Clayton and Zach Avallone each won two individual events but Tell City lost to Southridge 92-87 in boys swimming Thursday.

    Tell City led much of the meet but Southridge won the last two events to clinch it.

    Clayton won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:07.35 and the 500 free in 5:41.13.

  • Tell City girls use depth to...

    TELL CITY - Tell City girls swim coach Mike Page said in preseason he thought his team could contend with defending champion Southridge for the PAC title this year.

    The Marksmen proved that in the pool Thursday, beating Southridge 98-82 in a dual meet.

    Each team won six events but the Marksmen's depth was the difference, as they took second place in five of the nine individual events and third place in five.

    Freshman Chelsea Malone won one individual event and two relays.

  • Tell City girls rip Tecumseh

    TELL CITY - Tell City used strong rebounding and tight man-to-man defense to beat Tecumseh 66-25 in PAC girls basketball Thursday.

    The Marksmen jumped to an 18-0 lead in the first 8:15. They forced 10 Tecumseh turn-overs - four on steals by Kara McClintic - in the first quarter and outrebounded the Braves 16-5 that period.

    Several of those rebounds came on the offensive end, and the Marksmen scored two first-quarter baskets directly off rebounds.

    Having trouble getting a shot off against Tell City's tight defense, the Braves started shooting from farther out.

  • Braves scalp Marksmen

    TELL CITY - Some say that a basketball team looks good when it shoots well. But Tell City's boys team proved Friday that it's possible to hit 50 percent from the field and look bad.

    The Marksmen hit 23 of 46 from the field in a 77-60 PAC loss to Tecumseh.

    But they committed 21 turnovers and allowed Tecumseh to hit 63.2 percent from the field as they gave up 15 layups.

    Six of those came on fast breaks, as the Marksmen were slow getting back on defense after turnovers or missed shots.

  • Cannelton whips Eagles

    CANNELTON - Cannelton forced 22 Evansville Day turnovers and beat the Eagles 67-42 in boys basketball Friday.

    The Eagles put the first points on the board, but their lead would be short-lived.

    Tyler Aud was the first Bulldog to score and would go on to lead them with 20 points, including 15 in the third quarter.

    Chase Gerber came off the bench midway into the first quarter to hit back-to-back two-point shots, adding offensive momentum. He finished with 14 points.

    Justin Dooley led the Bulldogs with six first-quarter points.
