  • Tell City boys place 2nd in...

    NASHVILLE—Leo Simpson placed fifth and four Tell City runners finished in the top 26 as the Marksmen placed second in the 20-team Brown County boys cross country semistate Saturday.

  • New conference would be boon to...

    With Tell City searching for more competitive balance and the Pocket Athletic Conference possibly adding more Class 3A schools, it may no longer be a good fit for the Marksmen.
    But the Patoka Lake Athletic Conference, which does not offer several sports Tell City has, probably is also not a good fit - and there is no guarantee Tell City would be accepted if it did seek to join the PLAC.
    So, as I promised last week, I have come up with a proposal for a new conference that Tell City and nine other area schools should form.

    FERDINAND—For most of Thursday’s volleyball sectional semifinal match between Tell City and Forest Park, it didn’t look like a 19-9 team playing a 1-27 team.

    Tell City was scheduled to play Mater Dei in the championship match Saturday.
    The Marksmen trailed most of the second game Thursday and never led in the third game.
