Squaws zip past ‘Skins

January 14, 2011

    FORT WAYNE—Bellmont held North Side scoreless for the first six and a half minutes of its girls varsity basketball game Thursday night at the By Hey Arena and came away with an easy 56-33 non-conference triumph to raise its record to 7-6 on the season.
    Bellmont had run up a 13-0 advantage before the Redskins could score and the closest North Side could ever get after that was nine at 19-10.

Jets oust Tigers from ACAC, 59-54

January 13, 2011

    MONROE—Last season's Adams Central defeat of Bellmont was the first in about 13 years and last night's AC defeat of Bluffton seems to have covered about the same duration.
    The emotional 59-54 victory by the Flying Jets over the Tigers in the ACAC Tourney came after eight lead changes and six ties and put Central into tonight's second semifinal game around 6:30 p.m. in the Fort Wayne Memorial Coliseum against Indiana's number one scoring team: Leo.

Keller’s 50-foot heave a key in Jets OT victory

January 13, 2011

    MONROE—It may be hard to believe that the most electrifying moment in an overtime game came not at the end of either regulation or OT, but at the close of the third quarter. However, it was true at Adams Central on Wednesday night.
    The Lady Jets overcame pesky, scrappy Bluffton, 57-53, in the ACAC Tourney and wound up tied with the Lady Tigers at 48 at the end of the fourth period thanks to a miracle shot for all time.

South Adams jumps into matt poll

January 12, 2011

    Bellmont moved from ninth in last week's Indianamat.com state wrestling poll to eighth this week, and South Adams entered the poll for the first time at No. 19.
    The Braves' 3-2 showing in the "Main Event" super duals at Bellmont over the weekend helped Bellmont remain in the top 10. The Braves defeated defending state champ and then sixth-rated Mishawaka Saturday, and also knocked off No. 14 Bloomington South, which dropped out of the poll.

Jets, Tigers set for ACAC clash

January 11, 2011

    Action in the longest running boys conference tournament in the state of Indiana will start tonight at four high school sites.
    The 88th annual ACAC boys tournament and the 37th ACAC girls event will open play at Woodlan, Adams Central, Leo, and Heritage. The draw for the tournament was held back in December with South Adams picked to travel to Woodlan, Bluffton going to AC, Leo will host Southern Wells, and Garrett and Heritage will meet at the Patriots gym.

Hop's heresy: 'Main Event' the real deal

January 11, 2011

    I can't remember a stronger Bellmont Super Dual (Main Event) than took place Saturday in a 10-hour marathon.
    Of course, the old Indiana's Best with Mater Dei, Bellmont and St. Ed's was no day at the park.
    This was the real deal with as good a Bellmont dual team as the Braves have had in some years, plus a rock-solid No. 2 Perry Meridian team, and then the ever-budding Penn squad (varsity one).

Braves top Cavemen; Falcons, Kingsmen go 5-0

January 10, 2011

    Brad Busse came off of his back and pancaked Mishawaka's Trey Taylor, capping 48 seconds of pinning fury and igniting Bellmont to a 38-30 victory over the defending state champs Saturday at the BHS Main Event Super Dual.
    The Braves also downed No. 14 Bloomington South, 43-21, and took out two-time state finalist Castle, 39-31, before losing to No. 2 Perry Meridian and No. 7 Penn to go 3-2 on a very tough day on the mat.

Jets kayo Dwenger en route to sweep of AC duals

January 10, 2011

    Adams Central came through the day unscathed, taking out Bishop Dwenger and four other squads to go 5-0 in the first annual Adams Central Super Duals.
    "We hadn't beaten Bishop Dwenger in a long time, so it was a big win for us," stated Adams Central coach Doug Schultz on the 37-33 victory over the Saints.
    "We had the two forfeits and they had a solid team all the way across, so we had our work cut out for us, but the kids came through," said Schultz.
