BELLEVUE — The conference has changed, but not the result.

Bellevue rolled past Clyde 74-54 Saturday to claim at least a share of the Sandusky Bay Conference Lake Division title.

The championship is the eighth in a row for the Redmen (20-1, 11-0 SBC Lake) and their first as members of the SBC. A home win Thursday against Norwalk will give Bellevue, ranked third in Division II, the outright title.

The Redmen led just 18-14 at the first stop before racing past the Fliers 43-27 over the next two periods to take control.

Payton Vogel and Gabby Turner led the charge during that two-quarter stretch, with Vogel scoring 12 of her 17 points then while Turner turned in all of her 12.

Casey Santoro led the victors with 20 points and Cory Santoro tossed in another 16.

Jackie Smith paced Clyde with 16 points, Heidi Marshall netted 15 and Alexis Keegan added nine.

FOSTORIA — Jessica Bowerman led a quartet of double-digit scorers Saturday as Seneca East beat Fostoria, 75-56, for its sixth win in a row.

Bowerman tossed in 22 points for the Tigers (17-4), Marina Adachi netted 18 and Aubrey Saylors and Bonnie Bivens both tallied 10.

The Redmen (4-17) got 18 points from Tyriana Settles and nine from Evion Taylor.
