  • TC wrestlers shooting for PAC championship

    TELL CITY - With about the same experience and numbers as in recent years, Tell City' s wrestling team is shooting for another winning season.

    The Marksmen have seven full-time starters returning and 12 lettermen on their 25-man roster (anyone who wrestled at least one varsity match last year lettered).

    Most of their returnees are in the lower weight classes and the 215-pound and heavyweight classes, so Coach Joe Litherland expects those to be the team' s strengths.

  • Cannelton girls' shooting cold in loss to Tecumseh

    CANNELTON - Cannelton hit only 19.4 percent from the field in a 74-27 girls basketball loss to Tecumseh Thursday.

    The Bulldogs also hurt themselves by committing 24 turnovers.

    And Tecumseh found enough seams in the Bulldogs' 2-3 zone defense to hit 10 three-point baskets.

    The Braves hit three three-pointers and scored two baskets directly off steals as they jumped to a 19-3 lead in the first 6:20 of the game.

    "Turnovers killed us," said Cannelton Coach Jeff Miller. "We' ve got to get away from throwing lazy passes."

  • Cannelton defense shuts down Medora girls 36-4

    CANNELTON - Cannelton' s defense shut out Medora for nearly 20 minutes as the Bulldogs won 36-4 in girls basketball Friday.

    Medora entered the game with a 1-5 record and averaging a modest 27.8 points per game. And playing its seventh game in a 11 days probably didn' t help its shooting.

    The two-hour drive to the game probably also didn' t help. The game was scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. but was delayed nearly a half hour because Medora did not arrive at the gym until 5:27 p.m.
