The Bellmont Squaws won the cross country invitational they hosted Wednesday night in a nine-team field and junior sensation Bailey Beery easily captured first place with a strong 19:28.3 time, but other than that a lot of questions remained after the meet was over.
The Squaws placed their top five runners in 19th or better position out of a field of 57 runners (six schools competed as teams while three others had incomplete teams) and the final statistic sheets showed them to be in the area of 41 points.
Concordia Lutheran backed up their number one ranking in class 3A on Tuesday night besting the fifth-ranked Bellmont Squaws in four sets at the Teepee 25-23, 23-25, 18-25, 12-25.
The Squaws took the electric first set despite trailing 20-16 at one point ending on a 9-3 run to take their only set of the match. Neither team led by more than four points in the first two sets at any time and in the first, the Squaws built a 9-7 lead taking four of their points off of Cadet miscues.

MONROE— Bellmont completed the sweep of Adams Central teams over the weekend after a dominating win in football Friday by besting the Lady Jets volleyball team in three 25-16, 25-22, 25-19.
The night began on an interesting note with the two scheduled officials failing to show for one of the county's biggest rivalry matches. Long-time local officials Steve Mugg and Tony Bowman saved the day showing up as replacements and the games started albeit half an hour behind.
