Braves open season with win over Col. City

November 21, 2012

    COLUMBIA CITY — Despite offering one of the the youngest and most inexperienced opening meet lineups in his 25 years as the Bellmont head wrestling coach, Brent Faurote was smiling after the meet as his Braves rocked NHC foe Columbia City 51-19 Tuesday.
    "Four freshmen in the lineup and three of them go out and get wins. That's not going to happen a lot this year, but there will be times when we do have three or four freshmen in the lineup," said Faurote.

November 10, 2012

    It was not a scorer's game at the Teepee on Tuesday night as the Bellmont Squaws hosted Concordia Lutheran in their season opener losing 42-25.
    By the end of the first quarter, it definitely appeared to be the first game of the season for both squads as Bellmont led 3-2 after the frame. Audrey Schultz' three-point play off of an offensive rebound with 3:40 left put the Squaws on the board for the first time as she was slapped on the arm putting the lay-up back in.

Tonight the Squaws look to end their losing streak against the visiting Blackhawk Christian Lady...
