Ten years ago, Bellmont celebrated a decade of varsity soccer. Now, the program is an adult and it's time for the 20-year reunion. The date is Aug. 24 when the Braves host Delta in a 10 a.m. contest at the Bellmont Soccer Stadium.
"I'd like to see a great turnout. I think that 10-year reunion was a huge success, and was the catalyst for that whole (sectional championship) season," stated the architect of Bellmont soccer, Dave Spaulding.
Football season is here and it begins this Friday with scrimmages for all three county schools.
Bellmont will host the Jay County Patriots with a 7 p.m. start at Worthman Stadium. The admission will be a food pantry donation in the form of any item or a monetary donation. All food items and money collected will then be donated to the St. Mark's United Methodist Church Food Pantry in Decatur.

The Bellmont ladies golf team has been busy before the beginning of the school season this week as they were winners of both their own home tournament on Tuesday at Cross Creek and then won the South Adams Invitational the very next day at the Golf Course of the Limberlost.
In both events, the Squaws won by very narrow margins but coach Andy Heim was pleased with the final results.
"We played well and beat some very good teams this week," Heim noted. "We are playing awesome right now."
Over the weekend, Cross Creek Golf Club hosted the 2013 City of Decatur Golf Championship crowning Keith Blythe as the winner after two rounds.
Blythe claimed the victory recording a round of 71 on Saturday and a 74 on Sunday.
“I played better towards the end of Sunday’s round to hang in there for the tournament win,” remarked Keith after the event.
Nate Kortenber earned second place posting rounds of 73 and 74 over the two days played in the men’s division.
The annual Iron Kid Triathlon was held on Saturday, July 27 at Bellmont High School.
The event split kids into six different age groups based on age as they ran, biked, and swam through to the finish line. Also based on age was the distance for each groups’ trials.
Noah Hunley was a winner in the 5-6 year old group with a time of 13:57, while Mason Martinez was second with a time of 14:38. In third was Ethan Curtis at 15:03.

FORT WAYNE—There were over 35 schools present at the sixth annual Northeast Indiana Football Media Day held at North Side High School on Friday afternoon including all three Adams County representatives.
Gathered in the school's cafeteria along side media members of the region, each team was assigned a table. Bellmont's representation was so large that the Carroll Chargers were forced to grab a few straggling chairs from another table to make room.
On Saturday, the Ladies Golf Association held their annual Ethel May Sanmann golf outing at Cross Creek Golf Course.
The event went on despite a short rain delay and the ladies enjoyed their Florida scramble style nine holes nonetheless.
