Starfires beaten on the road

December 29, 2011

By DYLAN MALONE
    FOUNTAIN CITY— The Stars traveled to Northeastern High School Tuesday night to face the Knights on the hardwood, but fell short in the contest 62-53.
    Coach Andy Brown, whose team falls to 3-5 in his first season, shortened his bench playing only seven Starfires in the game and ran into some foul trouble down the stretch as both senior center Matt Alig and senior guard Dustin Wanner fouled out of the game in the fourth quarter.

Jets, Braves tangle tonight at AC

December 27, 2011

By DYLAN MALONE
    Tonight marks another meeting between county rivals AC and Bellmont on the hardwood. This year’s Braves/Jets meeting will be held at the Hangar in Monroe and in recent history that bodes well for the Jets.
    The home team has won the last three meetings between these schools. Last year at Bellmont, the Braves defended their home field with a stunning 70-63 win against the heavily-favored Jets.

Wrestlers gear up for big invitational

December 27, 2011

    There's just something about Mishawaka's Al Smith Invitational, it brings out the best Bellmont effort possible
    The rugged 32-team normally has a half dozen ranked teams and usually includes most of northwest Indiana's best. Still, no school has taken home the top trophy more than the Braves in the 33-year history of the meet. Bellmont has 14 titles, and the only reason that number is not 15 is a broken hand suffered by Brooks Faurote in a 3-2 semi-final loss a year ago.

    It's been an eventful year in Adams County sports, and there are many who deserve special rewards. That happens under the Daily Democrat Christmas Tree.
    Below are a few of the most deserving:

COACH’S COMMENTS:

(Kenadee) “The biggest thing that keeps her apart from the others is that she never says she cannot do something. At practice she is never lying down, back talking me, or refusing to do something that she might not feel to be important.” ~ Coach Tiffany Lee.

Lifelong friends reunite for Packers game

December 22, 2011

    Lifelong South Adams Starfire friends recently reunited in Green Bay and attended the Green Bay Packers - Oakland Raiders football game. Scott Habegger, a Wisconsin resident, got the idea for the reunion after hearing TV announcers say that all football fans, at least once in their life, should  see a game at historic Lambeau Field.
    "I've had the opportunity to see several Packers games at Lambeau, and I thought my high school buddies would enjoy seeing a game there as well," said Habegger.
