Though the time that the Bellmont girls 1600 relay team ran would have won three other regionals, the record-setting BHS foursome will not be competing at the June 4 IHSAA State Girls Track and Field meet.
Bellmont coach Carl Risch learned Wednesday afternoon that the squad fell two places short of making the field. It's the same case with freshman hurdler Holly Hankenson. She fell two places short of making the state field in the 300 sticks.
The the second time this week, thunder showers caused postponement of sectional play Wednesday afternoon.
Bellmont's Baseball Sectional was to have opened Wednesday with Wayne taking on Norwell. That game has been pushed off until today. Bellmont is slated to meet Maconaquah in the Friday, 5:30 p.m. game.
If rain hits again today, their would likely be added games on Monday, which is Memorial Day. Currently, only a 1 p.m. championship game is set for BHS Monday.
