Bellmont will be playing for a winning season against offensive powerhouse East Noble Friday, while Adams Central eyes a 7-2 regular season finish with a win against Woodlan, and South Adams will try for four straight wins at Southern Wells.
The Braves might have to go without all-time leading rusher Daniel Meyer, who is still suffering some affects of a sprained ankle. He's been rehabbing all week and hopes to play.
Bellmont blasted Wayne in all three games of varsity volleyball on Tuesday to give the Squaws a 26-4 record. The scores were 25-16, 25-9, and 25-12.
Here are the BHS stats:
Alex Fuelling led the way with 16 kills in 21 attempts, with three digs, two block assists, two aces, and one assist. Madison Schultz put down six kills, three aces, two block assists, one block, one dig for Bellmont.
North Adams Community Schools will operate during the upcoming year with a revenue reduction of more than $1 million from 2010 levels, Superintendent Wylie Sirk reported Tuesday during the monthly school board meeting.
Sirk said a $279,000 drop in basic state financial aid, coupled with a $580,000 rollback ordered by Gov. Mitch Daniels and a 5 percent increase in health insurance premiums that will take effect in January are the principal factors behind the $1 million shortfall.
South Adams Schools Board Vice President Steve Dobler suggested during Tuesday's school board meeting that there be student body representation on the schools' board.
Dobler explained that the board's bylaws allow up to two students to represent the student body as non-voting board members.
"I'm looking to start that process in hopes that we can get it in place by the start of school next year," said Dobler. "I think it's something we ought to start looking at."
