Beating the odds...again?

By DYLAN MALONE
    The Squaws were already out-ranked by the Delta Eagles entering Tuesday night’s regional battle.
    According to the coaches’ poll for Indiana class 3A, Bellmont was ranked fifth and the Eagles were surging as the third best team in the state.
    None of that seemed to matter to the seniors at BHS as they put a serious beat down on Delta at the Teepee in four games.

Dave Schirack...one of a kind

     "He wasn't especially athletic or skilled, but he learned the sport, fought his butt off and turned himself into a good wrestler," said former Bellmont wrestling coach A.J.

Chillin' with Dylan— Running as a sport...phew

    Leave it to a bunch of high school athletes to make me feel old, slow and fat.
    I watched in amazement as Bailey Beery and a slew of Starfire boys breeze past the rest of the running field at Bellmont on Tuesday night.
    There were a mixture of emotions flowing through my mind as I witnessed history from Beery. She shattered the old track record at Bellmont and she did it without looking tired.

Chillin' with Dylan-October means post-season

    With October upon us it’s time for post-season baseball.
