Bellmont Closes Norwell's 2008 Season

Bellmont 6, Norwell 5.

Goodmiller, Otis, Kody Kumfer and Bill Denney played in their last game for Norwell.

"The four young men who are going to walk away have done a great job for us," said Weybright. "Ryne and Rhett have been stalwarts for us for four years. It's kind of an end there with that group that was put together last year.

"I think some of the lessons that they've taught the young kids — not just about baseball but about life and passion — will pay dividends down the road," added Weybright. "We're going to miss them and wish them the best of luck."

NOTE: The Braves will play Benton Central (15-14) on Tuesday in 3A regional action at Benton Central (Oxford) at 5:30 p.m. The raindate is Wednesday.

In keeping with Norwell's view that Valedictorians don't exist, the team consulted the rule book to see if one team is actually allowed to win.  In sports, apparently, teams are allowed to win and lose, not so in academics.
