FORT WAYNE—The Squaws finished up their six-match road trip at Northrop on Wednesday night sending the Bruins reeling with a three-set sweep, 25-9, 25-10, 25-12.
Bellmont thoroughly dominated the match from the start improving their record to 8-3 on the season before heading home tonight for a match against another big Fort Wayne school, Snider.
Apologies for last night's broadcast between Bellmont and Heritage on the road as there were some sound issues with the broadcast. Tonight's game between the Squaws and the Northrop Bruins will also be cancelled due to the SAC (Summit Athletic Conference) requesting that there be no webcasting in their home contests. Sorry for the incovenience.
Tomorrow's broadcast between Snider and Bellmont volleyball at home will proceed as scheduled beginning with a pre-game show around 6:30 p.m.
