    TELL CITY—Matt Lynch, an assistant coach for New Albany the last six years, was named Tell City’s new boys basketball coach Thursday.
    Lynch, 26, is “wise beyond his age,” said Tell City Athletic Director John Atkins. “He got an early start so he’s been coaching longer (than most people his age).”

  • Rebels’ defense derails Marksmen

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY – South Spencer outhit and outpitched Tell City in their Class 2A baseball sectional championship game Monday.
    But perhaps the biggest difference was the Rebels’ clutch defensive plays as they won 8-1 to repeat as sectional champions.
    Each team committed only one error, but the Rebels made some spectacular plays - especially on the infield.

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY – Reed Goffinet and Preston Hendershot pitched a one-hitter as Tell City shut out Perry Central 13-0 in the Class 2A baseball sectional semifinals Monday afternoon.
    Goffinet pitched the first four innings for the win, giving up one hit and three walks and striking out seven. Five of his strikeouts came on swinging third strikes.
    “His velocity was a little higher than we’re used to and I thought he did a good job locating his pitches,” said Perry Central Coach Tim Taylor.

  • Sectional champs should be in...

    After the Jasper boys track sectional, Heritage Hills Coach Pete Lashley proposed a rule change that I think has merit though it did not draw strong support from his fellow coaches - even some who may have benefited from it.
    Lashley suggested that a sectional champion should automatically be placed in the fast heat of his event at the regional - even if his time is not one of the eight fastest feeding into that regional.

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Northeast Dubois went through its complete batting order in three of the four innings it batted in a 17-2 baseball sectional semifinal win over Cannelton Friday.
    The Jeeps didn’t really hit the ball hard, as three of their eight hits were infield ones and two more were bloops just over the infield.
    Their only extra-base hit was Owen Fuhrman’s first-inning double to right field, a fly ball that maybe should have been caught.

    EVANSVILLE—Tell City junior Seth Vaquero won the 800-meter run at Evansville Central’s boys track regional Thursday to qualify for the state meet.
