The IHSAA's decision to drop the Team State Wrestling Tournament following this season is a huge disappointment to 24-year Bellmont coach Brent Faurote, while Adams Central coach Doug Schultz and South Adams mentor Eric Myers have different takes.
The Braves have earned 14 (out of 16) Team State Finals berths and have earned multiple placements in the meet, and have beaten very strong Yorktown teams in two of the past three years. No other team has had as many Team State entries as Bellmont.
FORT WAYNE— The Squaws traveled to Bishop Dwenger seeking their first win last night as they faced the Saints in their third contest the year, and they fell short by a 54-46 count.
Bellmont played up and down with Dwenger for most of the game, but never really found the lead except for early in the first quarter. The game was, in fact, tied at 12 after the first frame.
