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.
Cold and windy conditions cut down on the Bellmont girls recording many new season best efforts on Senior Night Tuesday evening and the Squaws fell to the Norwell Knights 85-46 while in the boys meet it was much closer but Norwell still captured a 73-59 triumph at Bob Worthman Stadium.
The Squaws won five of the 16 events on the night and as usual were led by Alexis Harvey and Holly Hankenson. Both girls picked up two individual triumphs and then joined Emily Roman and Allyson Norby on the winning 4 x 400 relay team in 4:15.2.
MONROE— The wind was not the craziest part of AC's baseball contest hosting Jay County as the game also featured two hit batsmen that were not awarded first base because the official did not see the contact, three ground-rule doubles that slipped through the fence at almost the exact same spot, an offensive struggle that saw 20 base-runners stranded by both teams, and a three-run seventh inning for AC to come from behind and defeat the Patriots, 4-3 at the Hangar on Monday night.
MONROE— To call it breezy outside during Bellmont and Adams Central's tennis meet at AC on Monday night would be like saying Monica Seles made a few noises when she played tennis.
Seles was not present at the Hangar on Monday, but the Squaws and Lady Jets were, and their much anticipated rivalry this season did not disappoint, with AC squeaking out a 3-2 victory over the visiting Bellmonters from across the county.
HUNTINGTON—The Bellmont varsity baseball team administered the first loss of the season to the Huntington North Vikings, a team ranked third in the state in class 4A, on Saturday with a 3-1 triumph in the second game of a non-conference doubleheader.
