  • Tell City should remain cross...

    Some thoughts on the local fall sports season, with only the state cross country meet remaining and with the girls basketball regular season starting in eight days:
    Lost in the celebration of Tell City’s boys cross county team’s winning three consecutive regionals and qualifying for the state meet three straight years is the fact that the Marksmen are also closing in on the record for most consecutive titles in the Jasper sectional, a record that has stayed in Perry County for decades.

    LEPOLD—Perry Central’s defense couldn’t slow down Providence running back Kaden Williams in a 48-15 football sectional loss Friday.
    Williams, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound junior speedster, carried the ball 20 times for 279 yards and six touchdowns.
    Perry Central was forced to punt from its 40-yard line on its first possession. But the shanked punt went only 4 yards, giving Providence possession at the Commodore 44.

    On their opening drive Dustin Hunt completed a pass over the middle to Nick Smith, who outran a Mater Dei defender for a 66-yard gain to the Mater Dei 9-yard line.

  • Tell City to face quick running...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Mater Dei’s football team has passed for over 1,100 yards this season. But that’s not what Tell City Coach Josh Teague listed as the Wildcats’ main strength.
    He said it’s “No. 9, Chase Rheinlander, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound (senior) running back. He’s very fast and very shifty. He had a 60-yard touchdown run against Reitz last week.”

    Kaden Williams, a 5-foot-7, 155-pound junior, is the 4-5 Pioneers’ top running back. He gained 1,500 yards as a sophomore.

    TELL CITY—Mater Dei used strong serve reception and digging to beat Tell City 25-15, 25-18, 22-25, 25-20 in the Class 2A volleyball sectional semifinals Saturday.
    “Our hitters were swinging and had some good hits, but (the Wildcats) were in the spots,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.
    She also said, “We weren’t aggressive serving-wise. All year we’ve had 10 to 12 aces (per match) and we had two tonight.

    Anyone who knows me well knows I am a highly competitive person. I would like to win every softball game I coach and every euchre game I play, even if that is unrealistic.
