MONROE—Two potential scoring plays, about 16 hours apart, turned out to be the difference between victory and defeat in Adams Central's and Garrett's weather-elongated Homecoming game on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Garrett came out the winner, 21-12.
The visiting Railroaders won Day One, 21-0, and AC won Day Two, 12-0, but two missed scores by the Flying Jets were crucial: one on Friday just before the game was postponed due to lightning and the other on Saturday:
NEW CASTLE—This year's Squaws are a different type of challenge for coach Craig Krull, and Saturday's performance at the annual New Castle Invitational seemed to be a good barometer of Bellmont's post-season potential as they split a pair of matches against two of the toughest volleyball programs Indiana has to offer.
Bellmont took advantage of a pair of breaks, driving for scores after the Norwell miscues to carve out a key 14-6 NHC victory over the Knights Friday night at Bob Worthman Stadium, improving to 3-1 overall with three tough loop contests looming.
The game somehow dodged the storm bullets and was over by 9 p.m., seconds before a huge bolt of lightening cut open the skies.
"We did the things we needed to do to win," stated Bellmont's second-year head coach Larry Getts.
Bellmont tennis reached a few firsts under coach Joe Selking on Thursday night when they hosted NHC-rival Norwell.

The Braves picked up their three key wins from David Baker at number two singles, Mason Selking at three, and Logan Baker/Drake Reidenbach at number two doubles.

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.
COLUMBIA CITY—Untimely penalties and the absence of a "big play" kept Bellmont from staying undefeated on Friday night as they ventured to Columbia City for their first NHC meeting of the year.

Bellmont coach Larry Getts commented after the game, "We didn't have any consistency in the second half."
