LEO-CEDARVILLE — Adams Central heavyweight Joe Fuelling fought for some leverage then chucked the bigger Bryce Hager to the mat twice in the final minute for a 9-6 win Wednesday, igniting a seven-match win skein as the Jets dumped ACAC rival Leo 56-21.
The win put the Jets clearly in control of the ACAC regular-season race with a 5-0 mark. A victory tonight over Heritage would clinch the crown for the Jets, now 19-2 overall.
Nick Fuelling is this week's Athlete of the Week after a career-high performance against county-rival South Adams leading the Braves to a 68-56 win. Fuelling had 26 points on a nearly flawless 11-for-12 shooting performance from the floor owning the paint for the entirety of the game. Nick also led the team with seven rebounds and swatted a shot in the contest.
