Braves seal Stars’ fate with 4th quarter free throws

December 21, 2012

    BERNE—Bellmont has been searching for an answer to their shooting woes all season long.
    After getting embarrassed at Garrett, then playing solid for three quarters against New Haven, coach John Baker expected his Braves to come out with a better mind-set against the Starfires on the road Friday night.
    The team responded.
    Bellmont stroked 12 of 13 fourth quarter free throws to ice South Adams in a 68-52 win at the Stardome.

December 21, 2012

    Daniel Gunsett moved up to 120 to face SA's Matt Nussbaum in the last match of the night with the Braves up just six points.
    "Gunsett usually gets the best of Danny Baker in the room, that's what I told Danny that he gives us the best shot and the kids understand that," BHS coach Brent Faurote noted after the match. "Daniel has been wrestling the best out of those guys, and so I put into his hands tonight so he stepped up and got it done."

Braves, Stars set for county rivalry, part II

December 20, 2012

By JIM HOPKINS
    Senior Shea Pyle, originally thought to be out for the season, recently received clearance to wrestle for the 11-4 South Adams Starfires, who will visit the 12-5 Braves tonight at the Teepee.
    While South Adams coach Eric Myers calls Pyle "questionable" at 160 pounds, the Starfires will be without unbeaten senior standout LJ Moser, normally at 120 or 126 pounds. Moser is serving a suspension but is expected to be back in the lineup for the Starfires' ACAC dual with Southern Wells.

Jets win at Teepee first in 22 years

December 19, 2012

    Adams Central's Isaiah Bollenbacher stepped over Bellmont's Fletcher Shaneyfelt, scoring a 2:32 fall in the 220-pound match, and that did it.
    The Adams Central bench and crowd erupted as the Jets clinched the dual meet victory at the Teepee Tuesday night, snapping a 22-year losing skein to the Braves. The Jets, rated No. 1 in Class A, won nine of 14 matches to score a convincing 41-26 victory.

Squaws earn county bragging rights over Lady Jets

December 18, 2012

    MONROE—Both Adams Central and Bellmont were feeling good entering the cross-county rivalry on Monday night as the Squaws were riding two straight wins and the Lady Jets were two days removed from their best shooting game of the season in a rout of Bluffton.
    When it came time for the tip, however, it was Bellmont who kept their play at a high level, led by Audrey Schultz' double-double, topping the Jets in a lopsided 38-22 win on the road.

Adams Central wins three at Yorktown

December 17, 2012

    YORKTOWN — Adams Central coach Doug Schultz calls his team's performance Saturday at Yorktown "mediocre" as the Jets went 3-2, losing in the battle of No.1s to the hosts, 58-16, then falling to New Haven and former AC coach Barry Humble, 39-27.
    The Jets took second in their pool, slamming Prairie Heights 68-6 and Maconaquah 69-12, and also downing Culver Community 46-25.

Squaws earn 1st NHC win over New Haven, 40-35

December 17, 2012

    NEW HAVEN—The Bellmont girls basketball team scored nearly five times as many points in the second half Saturday night than it did in the first half and thus earned a 40-35 win over the New Haven Bulldogs in the NHC opener for the Squaws.
    Of course, that offensive production wasn't that difficult considering the Squaws went into the locker room at halftime with just seven points scored on 3-22 shooting (13.6 percent). 

Combs' 45 leads Jets to 2OT thriller over Woodlan, 85-78

December 15, 2012

    MONROE— Friday night's amazing AC win over Woodlan in double overtime at the Hangar could be summed up by just two words...Dalton Combs.
    Leading Adams Central in every sense of the word against the Warriors, Combs scored 45 points (53% of the Jets' scoring) en route to an 85-78 final in favor of the home team.
    Only Landon Adler in his tenure as a Jet has scored more points in a game netting 47 against a Canterbury team in 2004.

Braves lose to Carroll for first time in school history

December 14, 2012

    FORT WAYNE —  In its 25th and most likely final NHC wrestling contest with perennial state power Bellmont, Carroll did something Thursday night that it has never done before: win.
    Taking charge of the 2012-13 NHC wrestling dual-meet competition, the favored Chargers scored five falls in the first eight matches, then added another pin later in a convincing 49-24 win over the Braves.
    "They took it to us," said BHS assistant coach Paul Gunsett.
