  • Alvey reaches Eagle Scout rank

    TELL CITY – Blake Alvey, 18, of Tell City has earned the highest advancement award Boy Scouts of America offers to Scouts, the Eagle Scout Award.

    Alvey was recognized in ceremonies led by Scoutmaster Jon Scheer Nov. 13 at St. Paul Catholic Church.
    A member of St. Paul Church Troop 192, Buffalo Trace Council, Alvey is one of approximately 4 percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the Eagle rank.
    Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community or church-related service project to earn his Eagle.

  • Fame induction will be star-filled event

    When Wes Davis, Pat Malone and Dave Schank are inducted into Tell City High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame Friday, they won’t be the only former star athletes in attendance.
    As I said in an earlier column, it would be nice if some of the baseball players who helped the Marksmen win a conference title last spring could attend. But the four seniors from that team are all playing college baseball and have already started spring practice, so it’s unlikely they will be able to make it to the 4:30 p.m. induction ceremony.

  • Tell City girls’ shooting cold in loss to North Posey

    TELL CITY—Tell City Coach John Lyons called his team’s play in a 42-20 PAC girls basketball loss to North Posey Saturday “embarrassing.”
    “We didn’t show up to play,” he said. “We didn’t play half as well as we did against South Spencer.”
    It was hard to find any positive statistics for the Marksmen.
    They committed 26 turnovers and hit only 4 of 33 (12.1 percent) from the field, including 2 of 18 from three-point range.

  • Marksman boys seventh in PAC

  • Cannelton crushes Riders

    CANNELTON—Turnovers were the big difference as Cannelton trounced Wesley Christian 67-36 in girls basketball Saturday.
    Cannelton edged the team from eastern Kentucky 40.0 percent to 35.9 percent in field-goal shooting and 34-30 in rebounds.
    But the Riders committed 25 turnovers compared with just seven for Cannelton. That was the main reason the Bulldogs got 26 more field goal attempts.
