"We need that championship effort," stated Bellmont wrestling coach Brent Faurote, who has challenged his team to follow the Bellmont tradition and "find that switch and turn it on, take it to the next level" against a strong Penn team Saturday at Center Grove in the first round of the IHSAA Team State Wrestling Tournament.
"We definitely wrestled at a high level at Team Regional against Yorktown and Carroll. If we can find that performance, that level, we'll be fine."
A game of scoring runs fell into the hands of eighth-ranked Concordia Wednesday night at the Teepee as the Cadets topped the Bellmont Braves 56-45 despite scoring just two points in the final five minutes of the game.
As has been the unfortunate mantra for the Braves in the past month or so, the visitors quickly jumped out to a 7-0 lead before the Bellmonters shocked the Cadets with a sudden 12-0 blitz that included three-pointers from Forrest Fullenkamp and Payton Selking.
