Bellmont opened its Northeast Hoosier Conference season in varsity baseball Tuesday night thumbing its nose at experts who said the new bats required for this season in high school baseball would reduce the number of home runs and other extra base hits.
Bellmont battered Columbia City pitching for 13 hits including two first inning home runs and they also had four doubles in the game as they posted an 8-5 win and is now 8-3 on the year.
Cold and windy conditions cut down on the Bellmont girls recording many new season best efforts on Senior Night Tuesday evening and the Squaws fell to the Norwell Knights 85-46 while in the boys meet it was much closer but Norwell still captured a 73-59 triumph at Bob Worthman Stadium.
The Squaws won five of the 16 events on the night and as usual were led by Alexis Harvey and Holly Hankenson. Both girls picked up two individual triumphs and then joined Emily Roman and Allyson Norby on the winning 4 x 400 relay team in 4:15.2.
