  • New, young faces dot Tell City...

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys golf team has “a lot of potential” but little experience, said Coach Keith Feldpausch.
    The Marksmen lost their top four players from last year (three graduated and one decided not to play this year), so “we’re really a new team as far as I’m concerned,” said Feldpausch.
    The seven-man roster has no seniors and only one junior.

  • Spencer’s retirement marks end...

    Some people think I have been sports editor of the News forever. And in the first event I covered in this job, Mike Spencer was the winning coach.
    That was in 1978. Spencer, then Tell City’s baseball coach, saw his team win its third sectional in four years.
    The Marksmen advanced to the championship game of the South Spencer regional that year before losing to eventual state champion Evansville Memorial, which was led by a smooth, line-drive hitter named Don Mattingly.

    “With such a young team going against a veteran team (Gibson Southern had five seniors and two juniors in its lineup), I thought we competed hard and battled with the Titans,” said Tell City Coach Nick Weyer. “Therefore, our performance today was solid for our first match.
