Bellevue had another strong season on the gridiron this year with another regional final appearance and three players were recognized on the Division IV All-Ohio list when it was released Monday evening.

The Redmen had two first-team selections with senior Dakota McPeak as a receiver and Bryce McMurray as a defensive back.

McPeak led Bellevue with 56 catches for 974 yards and nine touchdowns receiving. McMurray picked off six passes and recorded 50 tackles.

The other All-Ohio selection was Brock Beier as a lineman. He led the Redmen offensive line as they rushed for 1,980 yards and threw for 1,556 yards during the regular season.

Upper boys win

while girls fall

UPPER SANDUSKY — Both the Upper Sandusky boy’s and girl’s swim teams competed against Colonel Crawford Monday in the Upper Sandusky Duals.

The boys topped the Eagles 57-37.

“Our boys team is really starting to come together in new and unexpected ways this year,” said Rams coach Justin Richardson. “I saw some great swims tonight from Joey Verdugo, Konner Holloway, Quin Voorhees, Trevor Daugenbaugh and Braden Cano.”

Holloway picked up his first individual win of the season in the 50-yard freestyle in 24.89. He added a second-place finish in the 100 freestyle in 56.38.

Daugenbaugh added a pair of second-place finishes. The first came with a 2:30.40 finish in the 200 individual medley. The other came in the 100 backstroke (1:11.03). Cano added a second with a 1:11.71 finish in the 100 butterfly.

The Lady Rams took a 64-30 loss to Colonel Crawford.

“Our girls knew going into this meet that Crawford’s program gained a good number of strong girls this year,” Richardson said, “so we focused on individual goals, and I think we did very well in that respect. Many of our girls reached or exceeded their goal times at this meet, which I think is a great accomplishment.”

The girls did have three individual wins — between two swimmers — and a relay win. Kami Swartz took a pair of wins in the 100 backstroke (1:06.02) and the 100 butterfly (1:07.29), while Abbey Wenger won the 100 breaststroke (1:11.84). Swartz led the 400 freestyle team, while Wenger anchored. Katie Conley and Maya Collins helped the relay team get the win in 4:09.84.
