  • Beard climbing Tell City’s...

    Before Braeden Beard’s freshman basketball season started, someone told me that then Tell City Coach Greg Arnold had said Beard would break Tell City’s record for most career rebounds.
    I thought that sounded unlikely, as Steve Lochmueller grabbed 948 rebounds in his Tell City varsity career and averaged 17.0 rebounds per game as a senior in 1970-71.
    But at the end of his sophomore season Beard is now more than halfway to Lochmueller’s record.
    He is also climbing the Marksmen’s chart for best rebounding average in a single season.

    FERDINAND—Tell City sophomore forward/center Braeden Beard was the top vote-getter on a young All-PAC boys basketball team selected by conference coaches Monday.
    Only three seniors made the 12-man team. Besides Beard, the top five vote-getters included two freshmen and two juniors.
    Six frontline players 6-foot-4 or taller made the team and only one was a senior.
    The 6-5 Beard earned his place at the top of this team by averaging 18.2 points and 12.1 rebounds per game.

  • Marksmen shut out Patriots

    TELL CITY—Tell City won all 16 matches to shut out Heritage Hills 93-0 in junior high wrestling Thursday.
    The 14-0 Marksmen have dominated all their matches.
    The only thing keeping them from shutting out South Spencer Tuesday was a forfeit in the 195-pound weight class. But Heritage Hills also forfeited that weight class, giving the Marksmen the clean sweep.
    Coy Hammack, Brayden Lain, Gage Meunier, Tyce DuPont, Trent Cail, Nigel Kaiser and Ross Wilgus won by pins Thursday.
    Alec Stahly won a 2-0 decision in the 150-pound weight class.

    HUNTINGBURG—Tell City had a chance to take the lead in the final 10 seconds, but ultimately cold shooting was the Marksmen’s undoing in a 31-27 boys basketball sectional semifinal loss to Forest Park Friday.
    The Marksmen hit 32.3 percent from the field, including just 2 of 15 from three-point range.
    But strong defense kept them in the game, as they held Forest Park to 33.3 percent field-goal shooting.
    The Rangers attempted just three three-point shots, making one.

    FORT BRANCH—Nine Tell Citians each went 4-0 as the Marksmen won the Gibson Southern Duals junior high wrestling tourney Saturday.

  • Why not rotate girls sectional...

    Several factors make this week’s Class 2A boys basketball sectional at Huntingburg a compelling one for fans.
    It has a balanced field and is being played in one of the largest and most historic gymnasiums in Indiana.
    Perhaps the most interesting thing about it is none of the teams has a home-court advantage.
    While the NCAA has not allowed teams in its Division I men’s tourney to play on their home court for several years, in most cases one of the teams in each IHSAA sectional does play on its home court.

  • Northeast Dubois ousts Bulldogs

    OAKLAND CITY—Sluggish and sloppy play from Cannelton led to a 69-38 loss to Northeast Dubois in Class A boys basketball sectional first-round play Tuesday.
    “Giving up too many offensive rebounds and put-back baskets,” Cannelton Coach Mike Snyder said. “I felt like our defense was great at the beginning and we slid off a little bit.
    “Part of that is probably due to the fact that we aren’t overly deep for what we would consider to be our varsity-level kids.”
