Jets win first round defensive battle with ‘Busco

February 29, 2012

    BERNE—Thirty-nine for Adams Central meant 100 for Aaron McClure.
    In the opening game of the South Adams 2A sectional on Tuesday, the Flying Jets became the Grinding Jets as they played down to the much more deliberate, defensive-oriented style of Churubusco and pulled out a 39-34 victory.
    The win not only propelled the Jets into Friday's semi-final contest against the hosting Starfires, but also gave AC head coach McClure the 100th W of an 11-year career at his alma mater.

Jets are favored to win first sectional in over a decade

February 27, 2012

    How do you get 16 wins, tied for third-best in school history, with a good chance of reaching a school-best 20 wins or more?

Braves stumble at Dwenger

February 22, 2012

    FORT WAYNE— Turnovers plagued the Bellmont Braves once more as they travelled to Bishop Dwenger to face a tough Saints squad and lost 71-43 on Tuesday night.
    The Braves, now 4-15, are still working out some of the kinks in the rotation. Seniors Payton Selking, Nick Fuelling, and Logan Smith seem to be out of coach John Baker's doghouse for the time being as they played significant minutes last night after a string of games with sparse minutes sparked by a lackluster effort at DeKalb last week.

Starfires blow lead under a minute against Winchester

February 22, 2012

    BERNE—It was South Adams Senior Night at the Stardome Tuesday night but it was a pair of seniors from Winchester that stole the show as the Starfires lost a heartbreaker to the Golden Falcons, 51-50.
    Cody Woodbury and Connor Detweiler will both be players that South Adams coach Andy Browns and the Stars will be happy to see graduate in May as they combined to score 37 of the 51 Winchester points including a game-winning hoop with 6.2 seconds to play by Detweiler, his only two-point basket of the game.
