  • Marksmen win all 12 events in 3-...

    LYNNVILLE—Jennifer Dinkel and Amanda Wagner each won two individual events as Tell City cruised to victory in a three-team girls swim meet Thursday.
    The Marksmen scored 139 points, Gibson Southern 86, and Tecumseh 35.
    Dinkel won the 200-yard individual medley in 2:46.48, which Tell City Coach Mike Page said “might have been her personal best.”

  • Anti-class basketball bill has...

    The anti-class basketball bill that Sen. Mike Delph, R-Carmel, has introduced in this session of the Indiana legislature is consistent with state Republicans’ attempts to bludgeon the little guy.
    Like the so-called “right-to-work” bill (which would actually lead to less tolerable working conditions) that Republicans are pushing, Delph’s bill would make it hard for the little guy to get a fair shot.
    In this case the little guy is  every small school in the state.

  • TC girls sweep Central

    TELL CITY—Tell City won all 12 events to wallop Evansville Central 119-49 in girls swimming Thursday.
    It was senior night for Tell City and “our senior girls performed well—they’re pretty competitive,” said Tell City Coach Mike Page.
    Amanda Wagner won two individual events and two relays to lead the Marksmen.
    Loren Braunecker and Charissa Lahee each also won two individual events.

  • Marksmen pin Wolfpack

    MARENGO—Tell City won all but one match actually wrestled to crush Crawford County 52-18 in wrestling Tuesday.
    Having to forfeit four weight classes usually hurts the Marksmen, but they gained six points on forfeits Tuesday because Crawford County had fewer wrestlers than they did.
    Two weight classes were double forfeits.
    Among the six matches actually wrestled, Tell City won four by pins and one by a major decision.
    “The ones that did actually wrestle did well,” said Tell City Coach Joe Litherland.

  • Tell City loses two games

    FORT BRANCH—Short-handed Tell City couldn’t generate any offense in a 55-8 PAC girls basketball loss to Gibson Southern Saturday.
    The Marksmen played without leading scorer and rebounder McKenzie Hayes, who broke her hand in practice Dec. 29. Logan Flannagan, another one of their leading rebounders and scorers, also sat out with a hand injury suffered when a car door was shut on it.
    Kassidie Hayes, a 6-foot freshman, was out with a hamstring injury, so the Marksmen did not have enough players to play a JV game.

  • Foul-plagued Commodores fall to...

    POSEYVILLE—Foul trouble plagued Perry Central in a 39-32 girls basketball loss to North Posey Saturday.
    Ashley Graves, Perry Central’s leading scorer and rebounder, “only played about 12 minutes,” noted Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “I don’t usually say anything about the officiating, but they just had an X on Ashley.
    “I thought our kids went out and really got after it. I thought Grace James and Brittany Parker really picked up the slack. They played really hard.”
