    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Better than usual quickness could carry Perry Central to a PLAC football title.
    “We’re pretty quick,” said Coach Greg Gibson. “This is the fastest team we’ve had in probably three or four years.”
    He said Austin LeClere, Devin Martin and Dacota Schaad are probably the team’s three fastest players, with Tim Harrison, Levi Hilgenhold and Nathan Shaw not far behind.

  • Marksmen hope size, speed offset...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City football coach Ryan George hopes good size and quickness can make up for his team’s lack of depth.
    There are 37 boys on the roster, “about the same as last year,” George noted. “I thought we’d have a few more kids out. We’ve got good kids, but we’re a little thin.”
    Not physically thin, though. The offensive line will feature 6-foot-2, 270-pound Cody Osborne and 6-foot-3, 260-pound Justin Gunterman at tackles.

  • TC girls golf team inexperienced

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—The good news for Tell  City’s girls golf team is it actually has a team.
    After starting practice with just one girl, the Marksmen now have four, the minimum required for a team score.

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—With five lettermen and a talented group of freshmen, Tell City’s boys tennis team has a good chance to improve on last year’s 7-12 record.
    The Marksmen’s top returnee, senior Anjan Kashyab, has made All-PAC three times and was the top vote-getter on the team last year.
    He finished 12-0 in the regular season before losing to Castle star Brandon Davis in the sectional.
    Kashyab also made all-district and received honorable mention on the coaches’ all-state team.
