  • Boonville edges Tell City in...

    BOONVILLE—Boonville scored a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat Tell City 3-2 in baseball Tuesday.
    Dayne Seibert lost despite pitching a four-hitter. The only walks he gave up were two intentional ones in the bottom of the seventh to set up a force-out situation at home.
    “Seibert was once again great on the mound but lost his second straight 3-2 decision,” noted Tell City Coach Mark Wahl.
    Tell City also had only four hits in the pitchers duel.
    Trent Nelson drove in both Tell City runs with a triple in the second inning.

  • Wolfpack shuts out Tell City

    MARENGO—“When things aren’t going well, they just aren’t going well all over,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes after the Marksmen’s 5-0 girls softball loss to Crawford County Tuesday.
    Tell City’s best scoring opportunity—and a chance to take an early lead—was negated by what he called two bad calls on one play in the first inning.
    Hana Reed reached base on an error by the shortstop to start the game and Julie Lindauer followed with a grounder to the second baseman.

    MARENGO—Perry Central’s girls softball team, in its 10th year of existence, is setting several records this season.

    The outfielders had trouble getting hold of the ball when they got to it and Brown, not the Commodores’ fastest runner, circled the bases.
