MONROE — The Lady Starfires of South Adams gave the heavily favored Lady Jets of Adams Central a run for their money at the Hangar, but at the end of the night, AC was left standing with a 3-0 sweep of the Stars with the scores 25-20, 25-13, 25-17.
It looked like South Adams was going to come in and steal the first game when they blasted out of the gate on a 10-3 start causing Lady Jets coach Jeremi Schortgen to call an early timeout.
WATERLOO — Bellmont served notice early on the DeKalb Barons there was a reason the last time Bellmont lost a NHC volleyball match came when most of Thursday night's players were back in elementary school.
They're that good.
Belmont Squaws Soccer team played Woodland in a down pour Tuesday night at Kreager Field, winning 7-0.
The field was flooded making it difficult to score in the beginning of the game for either team, but Bellmont continued their patient play and possession soccer as the midfielders Kylie Beery, Amberly Guiterezz, and Alyssa Strickler continued to pass the ball well.
MONROE—South Adams cross country fortunes went 4-0 Tuesday night as they knocked off ACAC foes Adams Central and Garrett in both boys and girls races.
NEW HAVEN— The Braves took eighth out of 17 teams in the mid-sized school division of the New Haven Invitational at the Plex on Saturday.
There were many personal bests from the event's runners from Bellmont. Fourteen Braves posted season bests or career bests as the varsity and JV ran in the same race.
BLUFFTON— After the exciting battle over the weekend against Muncie Burris at the Warsaw Invitational, traveling to Bluffton to play a struggling Lady Tigers squad seemed like a breeze to the surging Squaws from Bellmont as they would go on to defeat Bluffton in three games, 25-2, 25-6, 25-12.
MONROE—Alyssa Keller recorded a double-double with 13 digs and 22 assists Monday night to help pace the Adams Central varsity volleyball team to a three-game sweep of Norwell.
The Jets won the even 25-14, 25-22, 25-18 to improve to 9-7 on the season. AC also won the reserve match by a 25-18, 25-16 count and now own a strong 16-5 slate for play this year.
WARSAW— It was a smooth waltz to the finals for the Squaw volleyballers, but the action heated up instantly when Muncie Burris took the court and defeated Bellmont by the slimmest of margins in two games, 23-25, 23-25 to take the title at the annual Warsaw Invitational.
Ranked #1 in 2A, Muncie Burris came into the tourney, along with Bellmont, as one of the favorites and it came down to the two powerhouses in the final match.
MONROE—For the first time in the history of the ACAC tennis tournament, a team (Adams Central) advanced all seven players to the third round and the Jets finished with a claim to the doubles championship and runner-up in singles play.
Adams Central repeated at the top of the doubles competition with Derek Roe and Keaton Fiechter beating South Adams' Scott Hoeppner and Derek Schwartz in the finals 7-6 (4), 6-4. Roe was a member of the winning AC team last year as well.
NHC volleyball powers Bellmont and Carroll collided on the court at the Teepee Thursday night in a match that, despite the fact it was only the third of seven conference matches of the year for the two teams, was one that will more than likely determine the championship of the NHC.
That title, which has been owned by Bellmont for nearly a decade, will once again likely reside with the Squaws as they polished off the Chargers in three straight games 25-21, 25-18, 25-22 in a match that was anything but easy for either team.
