NEW CASTLE—This year's Squaws are a different type of challenge for coach Craig Krull, and Saturday's performance at the annual New Castle Invitational seemed to be a good barometer of Bellmont's post-season potential as they split a pair of matches against two of the toughest volleyball programs Indiana has to offer.
Bellmont took advantage of a pair of breaks, driving for scores after the Norwell miscues to carve out a key 14-6 NHC victory over the Knights Friday night at Bob Worthman Stadium, improving to 3-1 overall with three tough loop contests looming.
The game somehow dodged the storm bullets and was over by 9 p.m., seconds before a huge bolt of lightening cut open the skies.
"We did the things we needed to do to win," stated Bellmont's second-year head coach Larry Getts.

Summer may be nearing an end, but lawns still need to be cut and trash needs to be cleared out of yards in the town of Monroe, according to the town council.
During Thursday night's meeting, President Al Lehman said he wants to remind the residents that there is a town ordinance mandating residents keep their lawns cut and property free of trash. Lehman said the town is well kept, for the most part, but there has been an ongoing issue with "a few houses that just can't seem to get it done."
