DECATUR, Ind. (WANE) – For the first time in over a decade the Bellmont baseball team is a conference champion. The Braves won the first ever Northeast 8 baseball title with a 6-1 conference title.
The Braves beat out state-ranked Norwell, and a tough Huntington North team to win the conference crown. The Braves open up sectional play tomorrow with Marion at Bellmont, weather permitting.
The Bellmont baseball team is succeeding on and off the field. They were instrumental in helping their classmate and die-hard NASCAR fan Robert Smith see his dream come true by helping a video of him naming NASCAR facts go viral. The clip found its way to Montel Williams, a friend to Northeast Indiana sports teams. He helped get the video to NASCAR who will be sending Robert to the Brickyard 400 and the Daytona 500 where he will get to meet his favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt Junior.
