  • Tell City girls have improved...

    TELL CITY—Improved guard play and shooting could lead to a winning season for Tell City’s girls basketball team.
    “With Katie Goffinet, Hayley Fackler, who just continues to get better, Lizzy Kehl, Chloe Carman and Grace Kreilein, for the first time in a while I feel like our guard play is going to be pretty good,” said Coach John Hayes.
    Four of those players will start, though, so the Marksmen will be a guard-dominated team.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central went scoreless in the third quarter and lost to Southridge 37-33 in season-opening girls basketball Tuesday.
    The Commodores had some problems with Southridge’s press early and fell behind 11-2.
    Then they started to break it and Southridge got in foul trouble with it and called it off.
    The Commodores went on a 6-0 run to take a 19-18 lead with 2:17 left in the first half.

  • State meet capped amazing run...

    Tell City’s boys cross country team will still be good next year. As I wrote earlier, the Marksmen should still be sectional favorites, and they could compete for another regional title unless several more outstanding runners join Christian Academy.
    But it will be hard to top the run they have had lately.
    They have extended their streak of winning the Jasper sectional to five consecutive years and next year will try to match the school’s best streak ever of six years set in the 1970s, when Tell City had more than twice as many students as it has now.

    LEOPOLD—Good quickness, along with better ball-handling and shooting, could help Perry Central’s girls basketball team improve on last year’s 3-20 record.
    “We play really hard and we’ve got some quickness,” said Ty Guillaume, who is starting his fifth season as the team’s head coach. “I wouldn’t say it’s the fastest group we’ve had overall, but we’ve got some quick girls at different positions.”

  • Dauby 90th in girls semistate

    NASHVILLE—Perry Central senior Elizabeth Dauby ran her fastest time of the season, 20:57.8, as she finished 90th among 176 runners in Brown County’s girls cross country semistate Saturday.
    “It was a PR for her for the season,” said Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett. “She didn’t quite run as fast this year as she did last year.
    “The times ended up being a little faster than what we thought. It was a great day to run.”

    FERDINAND—Tell City junior Kammie Jo Hayes was a repeat selection to the All-PAC volleyball team in voting by conference coaches Monday.
    Hayes, an outside hitter, was the third leading vote-getter among eight all-around players on the team.
    She led the Marksmen in kills with 398 and solo blocks with 33.
    She was second on the team in total blocks with 53, third in ace serves with 48, and third in digs with 284.
