BERNE— For the first time in a span of about a season and a half, 24 games to be exact, the Lady Starfires of South Adams won a basketball game, and they did it in dominating fashion over the Muncie Burris Lady Owls, 56-39.
Coach Ryan Cunningham, now 1-5, paced the sidelines for most of the game grumbling about the turnovers in the game, and with good reason. His team had 32 of them.
The good news for SA was that Burris had 47.
The ACAC All-Conference football teams were released today with three-peat ACAC champion Leo Lions leading the way with six members on the first team. The Starfires of South Adams had five members on the first team, while Garrett and Heritage each had four. Adams Central, Bluffton, and Woodlan added two from their squads.
BERNE—Two nearly identical scores were posted in swim matches between county rivals Adams Central and South Adams Tuesday night at the SA pool with the Adams Central boys team earning a 111-61 triumph while the South Adams girls raced to a 109-60 victory.
In the win for the AC boys, Gavin Kaehr recorded two new Adams Central school records in the meet. Kaehr notched a 2:18.40 swim in the 200 IM to win that race by over eight seconds. He had respective splits of :26.85, :35.63, :42.73, and :33.19 for his new mark.
How's the new weight class switch, adding a heavier weight class for 2011-12 while taking out a middle class, working out after just one week of wrestling?
Well, in Saturday's Super Dual at Yorktown, Bellmont senior Isaac Birch, in the new 220-pound class, received three forfeits. South Adams went 5-0 at Homestead, but had to forfeit the 195-pound class in every meet. There were other forfeits at both sites in various meets at 182 and heavyweight.
BERNE— The Starfire boys took on the Daleville Broncos at the Stardome for a non-conference match-up on the court Saturday night and came away with a 66-54 victory to improve to 2-0 on the year.
The game featured the return of last year's leading scorer Dustin Wanner who picked up right where he left off against the Broncos after missing the Union City game with an ankle injury.
YORKTOWN — "Even though it's early in the season, we were hoping to get them," stated Bellmont coach Brent Faurote, whose Braves have avenged regular-season losses to Yorktown in two of the last three regional showdowns in February.
Bellmont coach John Baker picked up the first win of his career in front of a home crowd at the Teepee on Saturday night as his Braves handled the Woodlan Warriors, 58-44.
The Braves jumped out to a 5-0 start at the beginning of the first quarter, but looked a bit shaky the rest of the frame as they came back to the bench down 12-11 after one.
Coach Baker would have none of it. "This is not Bellmont basketball!" he hollered in the huddle, and his players got the message.
FORT WAYNE — Twenty-one points was as close as any squad came to matching South Adams in the season opening duals at Homestead Saturday as the Starfires easily took the title for the day with a perfect 5-0 slate.
The fewest points scored on the day for the Stars was 48 in that 21-point win over Fort Wayne Snider. The Stars dumped the host Spartans 49-21, downed ACAC foe Heritage 50-23, blasted Marion 63-18 and finished with a 45-27 win over Churubusco.
Homestead was second in the meet, going 4-1.
FORT WAYNE — Led by a sizzling hot Ronald Lucas, Wayne's Generals blasted out of the chute Wednesday in the season opener versus Bellmont, charging to a 21-0 lead over the befuddled Braves en route to a 72-44 win.
