FORT WAYNE—With only the Bellmont quad left before sectionals, Adams Central tangled with North Side in a non-conference battle on Wednesday night earning a four-set victory over the Redskins 26-24, 25-12, 25-10, 25-13.
The Lady Jets found themselves on the wrong end of a slow start in set one that they could not recover from combined with the good play of North Side out of the gate. AC would keep the set close until finally the Lady Redskins pulled out the victory needing an extra point to do so in a 26-24 set one victory.
