BLUFFTON — Adams Central tennis finished off their regular season sweep of all sectional opponents they may face at Norwell on October 2 when they handed the Bluffton Tigers a 5-0 beating on Monday night on the road.
Andy Oliver had the match of the night against Bluffton's Aaron Sturgeon defeating the number three singles player in three sets 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 2-6.
Congratulations to this week's top three Pigskin Pickers for getting the least amount wrong for week three of the contest, Lori McGill, Darlene Sheets, and Michael McGill. The tie-breaker score was 47 points this week with the ties settled in the standings by the closest guesses.
BLUFFTON — For the second year in a row, Bellmont has put girls golf on the radar in Indiana advancing to regionals with a third place finish Saturday at Timberridge Golf Course.
The Squaws took the bronze medal with a team score of 368 qualifying as the last team to advance with Homestead winning the sectional outright with a score of 359 and Canterbury taking second at 365.
"We all played great and the girls should be very proud!" exclaimed BHS coach Andy Heim after the sectional finish.
It all happened in 1995.
OJ Simpson was found innocent, the Oklahoma City bombing devastated the country, and the DVD was announced.
What local Adams County buffs may remember to be just as significant, however, was the last time that Bellmont defeated Homestead on the gridiron.
On a rainy, slippery field at Worthman Stadium, the Bellmont Braves pulled out an unlikely upset of the juggernaut Homestead Spartans in overtime, 14-13, a feat that had not occurred in 17 years of football.
Tonight the Braves welcome Homestead to Worthman Stadium with a kick-off of around 7 p.m. The webcast of tonight's game will begin with a pre-game show around 6:40 p.m.
