Bellmont had five No. 1 seeds and South Adams four after the Jay County Sectional Wrestling Seeding meeting Monday night.
Brooks Faurote at 140, John Mahlan at 160, Ryley Hankenson at 171, Travis Thatcher at 215 and unbeaten heavyweight Daniel Meyer are the top seeds for the Braves as they seek a 21st straight sectional crown Saturday at Jay County.
Jacob Girod at 112, Bobby Keuneke at 119 and Ben Baker at 189 are the seconds seeds for the Braves.
On the final roll of the sectional championship roll-off, Bellmont's A.J. McCoy knocked down nine pins and it was just enough as he successfully defended his individual singles sectional crown by beating Huntington North's E.J. Tackett 204-203.
It was a step-ladder playoff, so McCoy had to win three head-to-head matches after a 629 (256, 193, 180) series to qualify fourth among the final four. It was held at the Bowling Center in Bluffton.
