BERNE— South Adams earned five falls, took a pair of forfeits and rebuffed match-time strategy by Southern Wells coach Ryan Landis in two other slots in a 45-19 ACAC wrestling win over the Raiders Friday night at the Stardome.
"They kind of played games, so we had our guys ready, and they stepped in and got the job done," stated South Adams coach Barry Humble, who has written a few books of his own about match manipulation.

MONROE—The opening round of the 91st boys and 40th girls ACAC basketball tournament opened for Adams Central and Southern Wells at the Hangar Tuesday night with the Adams Central boys posting a 61-49 victory over the Raiders while the Wells County girls breezed past the Jets by a 58-28 count.
KINGSLAND — A highly-motivated Bellmont wrestling team turned in it's top performance of the season Monday night at Norwell, denying No. 18 East Noble a second consecutive victory over the Braves. With the convincing 37-22 NHC win, Bellmont racked up a second win over a top-20 team in three days, and now leads the series with the Knights 27-1.
"I just told the kids to go over to the (auxillary) gym, and walk around, talk, find an attitude," explained Bellmont coach Brent Faurote, whose wrestling time out was never more needed, after a 48-21 thrashing by No. 15 Mishawaka in Saturday's Main Event, likely the toughest super dual in the state.
"We did not wrestle with an attitude against Mishawaka ... but then we came back and wrestled really well in the Bloomington South match."
MONROE—Despite a gutsy second half performance on Friday night, the Adams Central Lady Jets (3-9) fell just short of the win as they fell to the Heritage Patriots (9-3) by a score of 41-38 at the Hangar.
"Overall, I thought our second half performance was one of the best stretches we've played in all season," explained AC head coach Sam Beer. "Heritage is a great team, and the way we were able to come back in the second half the way we did against them was great."
