Bellmont's 0-3 start was given no leniency on Monday night when the Leo Lady Lions came to town and took a five-inning 16-0 decision from the Squaws at home.
A no-hit effort from Lions' pitcher Jessica Claxton was not entirely necessary but effective nonetheless as the Squaws reached first base on a Nicole Schevenius walk in the second inning but would get no further on the paths Monday night.
CAMBRIDGE CITY—The Starfire baseball team made a 140-mile round trip on Saturday playing a pair of games in between to make it worth their while going 2-0 on the day to improve their record to an even 3-3 on the season.
The Stars began their day with a six inning rout of the host school Cambridge City Lincoln Golden Eagles, 10-0 led by the one-hit pitching effort of their senior ace, Alex Augsburger. The hurler had three strikeouts with three walks but allowed just one hit all day to the Golden Eagles facing 20 batters officially.
For the girls, SA won just five of the 15 events but managed to earn enough points for the victory with 62, while Garrett was just behind at 51 points and AC finished third with 43.
The Railroaders were winners of two of the three relays but the Stars won the 3200 Relay behind the strength of Kristen Muselman, Aleesha Goodwin, Lily Shane, and Katelyn Hawbaker who finished with a time of 11:57.6.
The well-oiled Bellmont girls track machine kept humming on all cylinders Tuesday night pounding out decisive victories over Northeast Hoosier Conference foes New Haven and DeKalb.
Bellmont rolled out 85 points compared to 42 for DeKalb and 37 for New Haven.
