KINGSLAND— All three Adams County schools will be taking part in the tennis sectional semi-finals today along with Huntington North thanks to the results Wednesday in the opening round at Norwell High School.
The Bellmont Squaws defeated the Norwell Knights by a 3-2 margin rectifying a loss earlier this year to their NHC foes, while South Adams also earned a sectional win for the first time in several years by downing Bluffton 3-2.
NEW HAVEN—Six wins, including two new track sectional records, wasn't quite enough for Bellmont Tuesday night but the Carl Risch-led Squaws still qualified for 12 of the 16 events at next week's IHSAA regional at Wayne.
The Braves made due with what they had at the plate Monday night rocking another conference victory over Columbia City at home, 3-1.
Ryan Okoniewski pitched a complete game victory for the Braves allowing just one run on seven scattered hits with zero walks and four K's.
"Tonight was a great game," Bellmont coach Ben Fawbush noted. "Ryan pitched extremely well and I couldn't have asked for more of him. His off-speed stuff was working well mixed with his fastball."
Bellmont girls track coach Carl Risch has predicted "it should be a tight three-team race" for the championship of the IHSAA sectional competition being held at the Patrick D. Monaghan Track and Field Facility in New Haven Tuesday night at 5 p.m. with Bellmont, Wayne, and Homestead as the favorites.
Bellmont High School graduate Katie Knous wound up a four-year career at Huntington University by leading the Foresters to a record-breaking season in 2014.
Meanwhile, an Adams Central product, Bess Fiechter, launched her career at Huntington with an outstanding freshman season. Former Parkway standout Lindsay Shellabarger and Southern Wells grad Cristin Carter also played key roles.
AUBURN— The Braves ventured a Greenhurst Country Club in Auburn to face off with NHC foe DeKalb on Tuesday night avoiding the wetter weather down south to win a 155-174 match-up.
Playing the front nine on the course, Bellmont's Chase Ellsworth finished with a medalist 37 on the day but each Braves' shooter shot better than the Barons' top golfer on the day.
Grant Ainsworth and Sterling Price each shot 39s just behind Ellsworth, while Corey Coshow and Patrick Wright finished with a 40 each.
Tonight the Squaws (4-14) host the Bishop Luers Lady Knights (8-9) on the softball field at home. The game is slated to begin at 5 p.m. but is subject to change due to fluctuating school dismissal times. The DDD broadcast will begin approximately 15 minutes before game time.

NEW HAVEN—Bellmont scored in all but one event and captured five first place finishes en route to snaring its first-ever Northeast Hoosier Conference girls track conference title Monday night at the Patrick D. Monaghan Track and Field Facility at New Haven High School.
"The story of the night is that our back-up runners came through to score. You've got to have the horses to win a meet like this and we benefited from scoring two people in a lot of the events," analyzed Bellmont coach Carl Risch.
