DALEVILLEâ€” Bellmont improved on their perfect season start with an 11-7 victory over the Daleville Broncos on Friday night.
The Braves, now 7-0 on the year, started out with a 1-0 deficit after Corbin Maddox singled in the game's first run in the bottom of the first. Bellmont would respond with two in the top of the second to take the lead when Mason Shinabery and Ryan Okoniewski started the inning with two singles. After a second out, Kyle Wittwer singled in both Braves runners for the 2-1 advantage.
MONROE— Adams Central's Lady Jets softball team brought home another victory with a 15-0 bombing of the Southern Wells Raiders Thursday night at home.
The Lady Jets pulled out three runs in the first inning to get the ball rolling, then issued four more in the second to take a 7-0 lead. A big fourth inning produced the final eight runs of the game and the contest ended in just five innings due to the mercy rule.

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).
