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.

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.
