FORT WAYNE—Again utilizing a less-than-full roster of athletes, the Bellmont Squaws managed to win seven of 16 events Tuesday night and split a Northeast Hoosier Conference triangular girls track meet against Homestead and East Noble.
The host Homestead team amassed 73 points for the team win and had eight blue ribbons on the night while Bellmont settled for 50 points. East Noble, a team that had knocked off Norwell and Carroll last week in girls track, won just only one event and was third at 44.
MONROE— Adams Central scored all 17 runs after the third inning to win a wild one at the Hangar on Monday night, 17-11, over the Eastbrook Panthers.
The Jets were down 9-0 after Eastbrook broke open the game with seven runs in the top of the fourth and it appeared that they would be on their way to a second loss this season.
INDIANAPOLIS—The Bellmont Squaws served notice to other teams from across Indiana Friday evening they intend to be a force to be reckoned with at the IHSAA state finals in July as they won two of the three events staged at the invitation-only Franklin Central Flashes Showcase.
The Squaws won both relay events on the night breezing to victory in the 4 x 800 relay with a time of 9:28.16 (winning by over 12.5 seconds) and then posted a 2.51 second triumph in the 4 x 400 relay with a 4:03.23 finish.
Bellmont played its first four games away from home but Thursday night lit up the Teepee with a shellacking of Blackford, 22-1 in five innings.
The Bruins' lone run came in the top of the first after Mason Shinabery struck out the first two batters of the game. With two outs, starting pitcher Chandler Piercy stroked a double off the fence in left, then was hit in by Scott Dodd for the 1-0 lead.
Tonight's make-up contest between the Blackford Bruins and the Bellmont Braves is set to begin at 5 p.m. but may be later due to the lateness of some schools in the extended school day period. The DDD pre-game is slated to begin at approximately 4:45 p.m. (gametime pending).

BERNE— South Adams High School had their first opportunity to host the Coaches Versus Cancer Classic in its third year of existence on Saturday in what turned out to be one of the nicest days of the early spring season albeit blustery.
The Starfires did not fare as well as the weather, however, going 0-2 against Adams Central and Bellmont in the opening and closing games. Bellmont was a winner over the Jets in the middle game. All proceeds from the concession stands as well as entrance fees were donated for cancer research.
Tonight the Squaws host the Garrett Railroaders for their home opener on the softball diamond (weather permitting). The game is slated for a 5 p.m. start tonight with the DDD pre-game show set for a 4:45 start.
