Bellmont won the recent Northeast Hoosier Middle School Conference Wrestling Tournament, piling up 16 placements and 332.5 points to beat Indian Springs by 20 points.
Taking titles for Bellmont were: Jordan Amacker at 95 pounds, Brett Baker at 155, and heavyweight Jacob Wooster.
Bellmont track coach Carl Risch reports that only 27 are out for girls track, but he's still smiling.
"We have some real quality this year," said Risch, noting the return of sophomore sprinter Alexis Harvey, 800 runner Jessica Brewer, who went to state two years ago, and some promising freshmen.
"The numbers are down a little, but we definitely are going to score some points," said Risch.
