Squaws blast North Side in sweep

September 5, 2012

    Bellmont moved its record to 11-2 for the season in varsity volleyball Tuesday night after delivering a three-win win over non-conference foe Fort Wayne North Side at the Teepee.
    The Squaws steamrolled their way to a 25-9 triumph in the first game that started with a 1-0 BHS lead before the first serve of the game when North Side was called for an illegal alignment. After a sluggish start in round two, Bellmont came on to easily take a 25-13 verdict from the Redskins, but the third game was anything but in the bag for the Squaws.
