    CANNELTON—If Cannelton’s hitting comes along, the Bulldogs could compete for the title in a wide open Class A baseball sectional this year.
    The Bulldogs return nine lettermen, including eight sectional starters, from last year’s 2-14 team.
    The only newcomers on their 12-man roster are freshman Dylan Young and juniors Kyler Houtchen and Patrick Haycraft, a recent transfer to Cannelton.
    With a veteran team, Coach Mike Garrett expects the defense to be good.

  • Tell City’s winter sports teams...

    Tell City’s boys basketball and boys swim teams had winning records this year for the second year in a row, and all of Tell City’s winter teams should be good for the next few years.
    The boys basketball team returns its top seven players from the last two years for their senior season and should continue to improve their record after going 16-9 this year.
    The continued development of some of the Marks-men’s younger players could also give them more depth next year.

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys track team will try for its fifth straight PAC title this spring, but a lack of experience may make this the hardest one to get.
    The Marksmen have 37 boys on their roster, about the same as in recent years and more than many schools of comparable size.
    How does a school with 421 students consistently get so many boys to run track?
