The Braves pulled the rabbit out of the hat on Wednesday night as they hosted the always feisty Heritage Patriots in a non-conference, potential sectional match-up and came out victorious after a two-run seventh inning, 3-2.
Bellmont, now 11-3 on the season, showed little offense the entire game as they were led on the defensive side by senior Landon Baker who went six solid innings allowing only the two runs for the Pats on six hits, two walks, and three strikeouts.
Going into Wednesday night's Northeast Hoosier Conference game with only three wins on the season, the Bellmont Squaws hopefully found a spark that will turn their season around as they shocked NHC powerhouse Carroll by a 3-2 tally at the Bellmont diamond.
Timely hits and strong defense played the key roles for Bellmont in the win.
The Braves' golfers did it again on Tuesday night beating the rain at Cross Creek to defeat a tough Homestead team, 153-164 to remain undefeated on the season with a 9-0 mark overall (4-0 in NHC).
Sophomore Chase Ellsworth continues his hot shooting earning a 35 (-1) on Cross Creek's par 36 back nine to lead the Braves. Nathan Kortenber was just behind with a 37 (+1) for the one-two punch Bellmont needed. Homestead's Kyle Davis earned a 39 (+3), good enough for third place overall.
FORT WAYNE—It was a typical triangular meet result for the Bellmont Squaws Tuesday night as they traveled to Carroll High School to match up with the host Chargers along with the Columbia City Eagles in a girls Northeast Hoosier Conference varsity track event.
The Squaws claimed their usual four first place finishes with both Holly Hankenson and Alexis Harvey dominating their events, while their 4 x 400 relay crew which has had a lot of success this year was just two seconds away from a blue ribbon.
MONROE—Adams Central hosted their annual track invitational featuring Bluffton, Southern Wells, Fremont, Canterbury, and Monroe Central on Friday night with the Jets earning first place on the boys side and the girls a second-place finisher just narrowly missing the win over Fremont by a slim seven points.
OSSIAN—Bellmont kept their bats hot as they traveled to Norwell to face off against the #4 ranked team in 3A according to the IHSBCA poll, pulling off the upset, 7-3 on Thursday night.
Bellmont, now 10-3 and on the honorable mention list in the same poll, came into the contest hitting the cover off of the baseball of late.
For five innings it was a pitchers dual for the Braves and Knights between Bellmont senior Phillip Bauman and Norwell's Johan Patten.
DECATUR, Ind. - The experts at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) have powered the 2012 ZL1 Camaro to its first run in the 10s, making an impressive 10.79 quarter-mile pass at 134.36 mph at Muncie Dragway in Albany, Ind.
MONROE—AC did it again.
For the fifth time in five days, Adams Central has played a varsity baseball game and won. Take away Tuesday night's game against Woodlan (a 10-0 laugher) and all of the games played by AC in the last week have been thrillers to the wire, including last night's win against Heritage in ACAC action at the Hangar where the Jets once again looked dead in the water late in the game, but somehow managed to pull out the victory, 7-6, for another conference win.
Bellmont Braves golf continued to roll last night playing the back nine holes at Cedar Creek (par 35) with a win against both Leo and Snider in dominating form.
The Braves shot a team-low 149 on the day with Leo coming in second with a 168 score and Snider just behind at 174.
Bellmont opened its Northeast Hoosier Conference season in varsity baseball Tuesday night thumbing its nose at experts who said the new bats required for this season in high school baseball would reduce the number of home runs and other extra base hits.
Bellmont battered Columbia City pitching for 13 hits including two first inning home runs and they also had four doubles in the game as they posted an 8-5 win and is now 8-3 on the year.
