    Bellmont and Yorktown, teams which battled for the best part of two decades in the now defunct IHSAA Team State Regional, will both bring 14 wrestlers to the Jay County Wrestling Regional Saturday.
    The meet is slated to start at 8:30 a.m. with the quarter-final round. This will be an elimination round since there are no wrestlebacks. The winners in the morning round will advance to the New Haven Semi-state.
    The semi-finals and championship rounds will follow. The championship round will likely start by 1 p.m.
    Admission to the meet will be $7.
    Adams Central will have 10 entrants and South Adams seven.
    Bellmont will bring in six sectional champs in the seeded tourney, while Yorktown will sport 11 champs from the Delta Sectional.
    At New Haven, Carroll and Leo will both have 11 entrants in that regional. Four regionals will combine for the New Haven Semi-state, slated for a week from Saturday at the Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne.
