DECATUR, Ind. - Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) has turned their LTA concept car into reality by debuting the first production Lingenfelter LTA at the 2012 SEMA Show.
BREMEN—Playing without your head coach can be harder than people think, just ask the New Orleans Saints who are now 2-5 without Sean Peyton.
Add the Adams Central volleyball team to that list as they played Saturday's semi-state at Bremen High School without their first-year front woman Ashley Beard in a four-set loss to #8 Southwood 25-13, 24-26, 25-13, 25-20.
MONROE—Behind the strength of four Kurt Blake touchdowns, Adams Central has a date with North Miami in a rematch of last season's sectional championship after whipping the Southwood Knights at the Hangar, 41-7.
The defending sectional champs looked good enough to repeat on Friday night starting their opening drive with ease all the way down to the Southwood 10 but the Knights' defense suddenly awoke and halted the Jets on four straight plays.
YORKTOWN—For the second time in less than a week, a Yorktown Tiger team ousted a Bellmont squad from IHSAA post season tournament play as Tuesday night the number one rated Tigers knocked off the number two Squaws in the regional by a 25-18, 25-16, 21-25, 25-20 count.
Yorktown also defeated Bellmont in football last Friday by a 31-20 score.
MONROE—Adams Central and Southwood are destined to intertwine twice in this fall's high school playoffs.
The Jets' football squad prepares for Friday's sectional semi-final on the grid-iron and after winning last night's regional volleyball championship, the Lady Jets will battle the #8-ranked Lady Knights at Bremen High School on Saturday in the first round of semi-state.
St. Joseph’s 8th grade girls won the CYO volleyball tournament over the weekend held at St.Charles in Ft. Wayne. On Tuesday they defeated St. John's New Haven in two sets, then bested St. Joe/St.Elizabeth in 3 sets on Thursday to set up the championship against St. Charles who has won the championship the last three years in a row. The Coms beat St. Charles in three sets 25-23, 14-25, 15-12.
OSSIAN—Playing an opponent he readily admitted he knew little about, Bellmont volleyball coach Craig Krull couldn't be faulted if he and his Squaws entered Saturday's championship game of the IHSAA class 3A sectional 23 with not an eye toward their foe, the Mississinewa Indians, but perhaps to Tuesday night's regional match-up with the number one team in class 3A, the Yorktown Tigers.
BLUFFTON—Adams Central ensured that Bishop Luers would not win a fourth straight sectional title on Saturday when they knocked out the Knights in the semi-finals of the tournament in a three-game sweep 25-22, 25-16, 25-11.
Then the Lady Jets breezed by the Bluffton Tigers in three despite home-court advantage to earn their 13th sectional title in school history and first since 2008. Luers was king of the castle from 2009-11 and were primed to compete for a fourth looking equally as competitive on paper with AC.
FORT WAYNE—Both Adams County cross country teams entered in the 2012 IHSAA cross country semi-state competition Saturday at the Plex saw their seasons come to an end as the Bellmont girls and South Adams boys each ended up 12th in their respective field of 20 teams.
The top six squads in each field advance to the state finals in Terre Haute this Saturday and the top 15 individual runners also move on.
MONROE—Triton won the last three quarters, 14-7, but when you factor in one of the most explosive first periods in Adams Central history, the result of Friday's sectional opener was Flying Jets 38, Trojans 14.
The Jets spent the first 15 minutes going "Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!," as AC head coach Michael Mosser verbally summed up his squad's beginning domination.
