  • Memorial defeats Marksmen

    “They were good,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “They had a senior (Emily Sullivan) who’s about 6-1 or 6-2 and has signed with North Carolina for basketball, but she could’ve played (college) volleyball too.
    “The first game I thought we played pretty well - we were passing well and picking up their hits.

  • Tell City wins frosh-soph race

    ZIONSVILLE—With all but one of Tell City’s boys cross country runners being freshmen or sophomores, the Marksmen could be expected to do well in a freshman-sophomore race.
    But winning a race for those classes is particularly impressive when running against two of the top 15 teams in the state.
    That was the case Saturday, as Tell City took the freshman-sophomore race in the Zionsville invitational with 43 points, seven ahead of the host team.

    Hunt’s fumble recovery early set the tone for the game, as Perry Central had driven to the Tell City 2-yard line before losing it.

  • Perry Central to visit Forest...

    FERDINAND—Perry Central will try to stop Forest Park’s power running game when they meet in football Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    The Rangers went 1-9 last year and lost their season opener 63-0 to Gibson Southern Friday. But Gibson Southern is one of the top Class 3A teams in the state, so that game may not be indicative of how good the Rangers are.

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s defense will have to be ready for about anything against Heritage Hills’ versatile offense in PAC football Friday at 7 p.m.
    “They’re a typical Heritage Hills team,” said Tell City Coach Ronnie Robinson. “They get in the (wish)bone and run a heavy front line - they’ll run blasts, iso’s and sweeps.”
