OSSIAN — Bellmont's freshman volleyball team won four matches Saturday and took the title in the Norwell Freshmen Invitational.
The Squaws won their pool, then took out East Noble 25-6, 25-10, in the championship match.
Taylor Rhymer led the way with 8 kills, 2 aces and 3 digs as Bellmont improved to 15-0 overall.
FORT WAYNE — Missing senior captain Kyle Lehrman, the Bellmont boys cross country team battled in the annual Northeast Hoosier Conference race Saturday on the IPFW course and finished sixth with 133 points.
Lehrman suffered a broken leg recently obviously putting him out for the season and that forced BHS coach Randy Hisner to run a no-senior line-up with four of the five harriers being in their first-ever NHC meet and three of those are running cross country for the first time in their career.
BERNE—South Adams claimed its boys' and girls high school cross-country invitational titles on Saturday, winning by wide margins.
The Lady Starfires triumphed over second-place Southern Wells, 42 to 117, and the Starfires were victorious over Northfield, 46 to 80.
The other team scores were Garrett 120, Northfield 124, Monroe Central 141, Adams Central 147, Carroll (at Flora) 154, Cowan 191, Centerville 193, Bluffton 202, Wabash 219, and Alexandria 266.
BERNE—Adams Central got back on the winning track in volleyball Thursday night traveling to the Stardome to extract a 25-17, 27-25, 25-14 triumph from the South Adams Starfires in ACAC competition.
Madison Schultz drilled in 13 of her 17 kill attempts while Alex Fuelling befuddled the DeKalb defense with eight serving aces along with nine kills and the result was an easy three-game sweep for the Bellmont Squaws Thursday night over the Barons.
OSSIAN—Bellmont eliminated one Adams County team from the 44th annual IHSAA tennis sectional Thursday night and will face another one in tonight's semi-finals.
The Braves blanked South Adams 5-0 for the right to advance to the semi-final round against Adams Central. Also on the agenda tonight for the Norwell tennis sectional will be Huntington North, a 3-2 victor over Bluffton on Thursday, versus the host Knights. Both matches will begin at 4:30 p.m.
"We've been preaching that all week, pursuit, angles, and, of course, tackling," said Bellmont football coach Rick Burkhalter on the football fundamentals that Bellmont will have to employ to stop one of the strongest runningbacks in the state, New Haven's Te'Vaughn Hurse.
The 3-3 Braves, fresh off a disappointing loss to Carroll in a game that Bellmont dominated statistically, have a few things to clean up on defense and special teams this week.
"We must be aggressive and not let them attack us," stated Adams Central football coach Michael Mosser on the prospect of taking on unbeaten and third-ranked Southern Wells Friday night at the AC field.
Southern Wells averages 376.8 rushing yards per game and gets about 9 yards per carry using coach Mark Lefebvre's Wishbone option offense.
The Jets have to recover from yielding nearly 500 yards last week at Ball State in a loss to South Adams.
