  • Turnovers doom Tell City

    MARENGO—Tell City committed 32 turnovers in a 60-51 girls basketball loss to Crawford County Friday.
    Most of the turnovers came in the second and third quarters, when the Wolfpack outscored Tell City 33-14 to build a 52-31 lead.
    “We just didn’t handle their pressure (man-to-man full-court and 2-2-1 full-court) very well,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “It was basically a nerve kind of thing. Then we finally settled down a little bit.”

  • Perry Central can’t stop Rangers

    FERDINAND—Forest Park outplayed Perry Central in nearly every aspect of the game to beat the Commodores 55-37 in girls basketball Thursday.
    “They’re good, and I think that is one of the worst games we’ve played in a while,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.
    He added, “Defensively, they just beat us inside. We didn’t defend the pick-and-roll very well and if they missed, we didn’t have any rebounds.

  • Numbers up slightly for Tell City wrestlers

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—For the third year in a row Tell City’s wrestling team is young and still lacks great depth, but the numbers are improving slightly.
    There are 18 boys on the team, one more than last year at this time and four more than two years ago.
    But Cody Osborne is the only senior. And one of the five juniors is a first-year wrestler.
    Jacob Hammack, a sophomore who started last year, suffered a neck injury in practice and may miss the season.

  • Hemmings, Ingle, Clausen propel Bulldogs past Medora

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Mikah Hemmings’ strong all-around game, Mollie Ingle’s strong post play in the second half, and Melissa Clausen’s gutsy performance carried Cannelton past Medora 58-50 in girls basketball Friday.
    Hemmings had 32 points and 21 rebounds, both career highs, to go with seven steals and two assists.
    But that wouldn’t have been enough to get the Bulldogs’ their first win without help from Ingle, who scored a career-high 19 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter.

  • Tell City 2nd in USA state meet

  • Tell City finishes 7th in relay meet

    TELL CITY—Two fifth places were Tell City’s highest finishes in the Marksmen’s own girls swimming relay meet Saturday.
    Castle won the seven-team meet with 140 points. Tell City finished seventh with 16.
    “If Castle isn’t in the top three or four in the state after this weekend, I’d be shocked,” said Tell City Coach Mike Page. “And Jeffersonville isn’t very far behind them.”
    The field also included Jasper and Mount Vernon, who won sectionals last year.

  • Local teams enjoyed good fall seasons

    This fall in football Perry Central beat Paoli, Paoli beat Southridge, Southridge beat Mater Dei, and Mater Dei beat Castle.
    So does that mean Class A Perry Central could have beaten Castle, a Class 5A team that had a winning record?
    Not necessarily. But it is further proof that local teams proved they could play with anyone on their schedules.
    This was the first time in seven years that both Perry County football teams finished with winning records.
