    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s girls track team has 13 members, more than it had most years in the 1990s but a number that still leaves some holes in the lineup.
    There are no pole vaulters on the team and Coach Katie Weyer is not sure she will be able to field a 400-meter relay team.
    “We might throw one together,” she said. “Kassie Hayes (a thrower) could run on it.”
    The Marksmen do have some depth in distance races, though.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central placed third in its girls track sectional the last two years. With 12 letter winners and five talented freshmen on this year’s 22-girl squad, the Commodores might do even better.
    The Commodores can put at least two people in every individual event and should be really strong in the distance and middle-distance races.
    Senior Cathryn Peter “looks really good in the 1600(-meter run), the 3200, and the 3200 and 1600 relays,” said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central will field a young baseball team this year, but the Commodores do have some experience at the key positions of pitcher and catcher.
    Only three starters return from the sectional lineup for last year’s 9-16 team. There are only four seniors on the team and two of them, including a foreign exchange student, have never played high school baseball.
    Eight of the 19 boys on the team are freshmen and some of them will have to see varsity action.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys track team did not score in either hurdles race in the PAC meet or sectional last year. But Coach Zac Hartz thinks those could be the Marksmen’s strongest events this year.
    His main reason for optimism there is junior Brennan Malone is back in both hurdles races. He showed a lot of promise in them as a freshman but did not compete in them last year after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in football.

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—With a team dominated by upperclassmen, Perry Central’s boys  track team has a good chance to repeat as Jasper sectional champion.
    The Commodores are strong and deep from distance races to sprints.
