    TELL CITY—With six starters back from last year’s sectional lineup, Tell City expects to have a good hitting baseball team.
    And after the Marksmen hit the ball, they have some speed to run the bases.
    “We should be able to score a lot of runs,” said Jason Wilkerson, starting his first season as the team’s coach. “If our pitching can hold together, we’ll be OK. In practice it’s looked decent.”
