Last night was a good night for Bellwood-Antis athletic teams, with the girls basketball team and the varsity wrestlers pulling off victories.

Moshannon Valley’s Lady Damsels were certainly damsels in distress against Bellwood-Antis’s Lady Blue Devils at home. At first, the Lady Blue Devils wouldn’t even let the Lady Damsels get on the board.

The Lady Blue Devils continued getting steal after steal, and came away with a 90-31 victory.  It was the last ICC game for the senior Lady Blue Devils, who finished their varsity careers with a 60-0 record in league competition.

Last night was also Senior Night and the five seniors, Meghan Claar, Selena Damiano, Ana Hollen, Kelly Leamer, and Anna Lynn got recognized.

Hollen’s game-high 29 points sure paid off, but she was one of five the Lady Blue Devils get double figures. Right before halftime, as the buzzer was about to go off, Hollen scored 3 of those points on a half-court shot.

Karson Swogger followed right behind Hollen 19 points.  Makayla Carles scored 15, Leamer scored 11, and Lynn scored 10.

The Lady Blue Devils will play this weekend in the ICC championship game at Claysburg-Kimmel High School (6 p.m.), with a record of 20-1 overall and 14-0 in the ICC.

“It gives us more drive for Saturday, and other upcoming games, because it’s starting to sink in that we only have one more shot”- Kelly Leamer

The Bellwood-Antis Blue Devil wrestling team had a reason to celebrate last night as well.

The Blue Devils went head to head at the match against Glendale at home and managed to get another victory, 33-30.

Freshman Nick Watters pinned his man, as well as senior Caleb Knisley and senior Jeremy Wilson.  Seniors Josh Wilson and Zack Mock got forfeits.  Junior Nate Claar put some points on the board by winning by an 8-3 decision.
