Hop's heresy: 'Main Event' the real deal

January 11, 2011

    I can't remember a stronger Bellmont Super Dual (Main Event) than took place Saturday in a 10-hour marathon.
    Of course, the old Indiana's Best with Mater Dei, Bellmont and St. Ed's was no day at the park.
    This was the real deal with as good a Bellmont dual team as the Braves have had in some years, plus a rock-solid No. 2 Perry Meridian team, and then the ever-budding Penn squad (varsity one).

    Brad Busse came off of his back and pancaked Mishawaka's Trey Taylor, capping 48 seconds of pinning fury and igniting Bellmont to a 38-30 victory over the defending state champs Saturday at the BHS Main Event Super Dual.
    The Braves also downed No. 14 Bloomington South, 43-21, and took out two-time state finalist Castle, 39-31, before losing to No. 2 Perry Meridian and No. 7 Penn to go 3-2 on a very tough day on the mat.

Jets kayo Dwenger en route to sweep of AC duals

January 10, 2011

    Adams Central came through the day unscathed, taking out Bishop Dwenger and four other squads to go 5-0 in the first annual Adams Central Super Duals.
    "We hadn't beaten Bishop Dwenger in a long time, so it was a big win for us," stated Adams Central coach Doug Schultz on the 37-33 victory over the Saints.
    "We had the two forfeits and they had a solid team all the way across, so we had our work cut out for us, but the kids came through," said Schultz.

January 10, 2011

    A new Indiana law making it illegal to discard televisions, computers and certain other electronics for regular trash pickups will have an effect on Decatur's twice-annual heavy trash pickups.
