LEO-CEDARVILLE — "Leo" is a three-letter word that ends in "o" and Leo's Lions are a three-point team with a whole lot of "O."
That point was driven home at home on Tuesday as the highest-scoring high school team in Indiana (at least five games over 100 . . . and counting) bombarded Adams Central, 104-73.
The 31-point margin was the worst loss of the season for the 9-6 Flying Jets, who carried the Lions into overtime in the ACAC Tourney last month before falling, 86-79.
The final four teams in both area girls basketball sectionals are set with No. 1 Bishop Luers hammering Bluffton at South Adams, 70-22, and 3A No. 4 Norwell blasting Maconaquah 79-14.
At South Adams in Friday's semi-finals, the host Starfires will take on Woodlan at 6 p.m. and Adams Central will meet Luers in the 7:30 p.m. second semi-final contest. At Peru in the 3A tourney there, the host Tigers will meet Wayne while Bellmont will take on Norwell.
The championship games will be Saturday night.
The new leaders of the Adams County Sheriff's Department, Sheriff Shane Rekeweg and Chief Deputy Eric Meyer, informed the county council on Tuesday that they have developed a plan to eliminate the "carryover" for years of built-up hours of compensation time, vacation and holiday time, and overtime by some deputy sheriffs and jailers.
A formal proposal calling for members of the North Adams Community School's board of education to be elected, rather than appointed as is currently the case, has been submitted to the Adams County Clerk of Courts and could be headed for a general election vote in 2012.
