BERNE — Bellmont captured eight first places and set four meet records, but still finished second to host South Adams in the South Adams Girls Track Invitational Friday night.
In the boys meet, South Adams also won that meet, topping second place Snider and third-place Heritage.
The Starfire girls totaled 116 points to the 102.3 points of Bellmont. Adams Central was third with 80 points.
Bellmont used a nine-run third inning to its advantage Saturday and posted an 11-0 win over county rival South Adams in varsity softball action at the BHS diamond.
The scheduled second game was postponed due to rain.
Bellmont led just 1-0 after two innings with SA's Lily Taing and Bellmont's Brieann Burkholder engaged in a battle on the mound.
The nine-run assault broke the game wide open for the Squaws and allowed them to win by the 10-run mercy rule.
