    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—With 23 members, Tell City has its biggest girls swim team in the squad’s 33-year history. Now it’s up to new coach Angie Spinner to sort them out.
    Spinner said Tuesday she will be able to put three girls in every event, but she’s not sure who will swim what yet.
    Charissa Lahee, one of four seniors on the team, is the only PAC champion returning as she took the 100-yard freestyle in 58.78 seconds last year. She was also on the winning 200 medley relay team.

    CANNELTON—It’s a familiar story for Cannelton’s girls basketball this year: The team has some talent but lacks height and depth.
    There are only six players on the team and one is a freshman with limited junior high experience. And no player is taller than 5-foot-71⁄2.
    But the Bulldogs return three players who started in the Class A sectional championship game last year for a team that went 15-7, tying the second best record in school history.

    TELL CITY—Improved ball-handling could be the key for a veteran Tell City girls basketball team to post a winning record this season.
    The Marksmen return all five players who started in the sectional for their 7-15 team last year, and all are projected to start again.
    That means 6-foot senior center McKenzie Hayes at center, 5-9 junior Logan Flannagan and 5-6 senior Lacey Briggs at forwards, and seniors Jami Rowe and Hannah Schaefer at guards.

    LEOPOLD—The inside game is the main strength of Perry Central’s girls basketball team this year but could also be a weakness at times.
    Ashley Graves, a 6-foot-1 senior center, returns after already making All-PLAC twice. She led the Commodores with averages of 14.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocked shots per game and field-goal shooting at 55.5 percent last year.
