    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys track team will try for its fifth straight PAC title this spring, but a lack of experience may make this the hardest one to get.
    The Marksmen have 37 boys on their roster, about the same as in recent years and more than many schools of comparable size.
    How does a school with 421 students consistently get so many boys to run track?

  • Rangers could go long way

    Forest Park won its Class 2A boys basketball regional Saturday and will play Indianapolis Scecina in the Washington semistate Saturday at 3 p.m.
    The Rangers are 24-4 and Scecina is 19-9, so the Rangers should be favored.
    In fact the Rangers appear to have a good chance to win their third state title in 14 years.
    Local fans who saw the Rangers trail South Spencer most of the way in a first-round sectional game only to win by one point on a last-second shot might wonder how the Rangers could go so far.

  • Marksmen 2nd in PAC

    LINCOLN CITY—Tell City had six individual champions as it placed second in the PAC junior high wrestling tourney Saturday.
    Undefeated Southridge had seven champions and won the tourney with 321.5 points. Tell City scored 212.5 and Pike Central was third with 207.
    With the Raiders’ strong team in the field and Tell City having to forfeit in six of the 17 weight classes, Tell City Coach Chase Litherland had figured second place was about as well as the Marksmen could do.

  • Tell City archers place 5th at...

    So Tell City trailed third place by only 19 points.
    Houzanme, a seventh grader, placed second among 402 middle school boys and fourth of 1,087 boys overall boys.
