AC, Braves look to upset at regionals

November 10, 2011

    The Braves and Jets will both be traveling quite the distance for their regional match-ups tomorrow in hopes of pulling off the unlikely against West Lafayette and Sheridan, two powerhouses in their respective divisions.
    The West Lafayette Red Devils have an impressive 11-1 record going into the contest and they also have the home-field advantage going their way, but the upstart Braves have something of a chip on their shoulders as they come into the game with the confidence and momentum.

Squaws start season with tough loss

November 9, 2011

    FORT WAYNE— The new-look Squaws had a tall order to take on in their season opener on Tuesday night as they started the coach Andy Heim era with a tough 53-22 loss at the hands of the Concordia Lady Cadets.
    The Squaws managed only five points in the first half (two in the first quarter), putting themselves in a big 28-5 hole at the half that was just too much to handle for the new Bellmont squad.

    "This was something else. I don't know what to say," said Bellmont's standout runningback Cody Walters minutes after the Braves won just their second sectional football championship ever, 21-20 in overtime at Western High School Friday night.

Ben Baker is Athlete of the Weeke

November 4, 2011

    Without solid line play on both sides of the ball, football teams seldom are successful.
    In Bellmont's outstanding 22-7 sectional win over Yorktown last Friday, Ben, as usual, played on both offense and defense.
    Offensively, Baker and Co. opened up holes that allowed BHS backs to gain 235 rushing yards while on defense, Baker was hounding the Tigers all night with seven and a half tackles, three and a half of which were tackles for loss of yardage. He also had one and a half sacks.
