Big 3rd quarter lifts Warriors past Eagles

December 22, 2010

COLUMBIA CITY — This was obviously not the sort of early Christmas present the Columbia City Eagle boys’ basketball team was looking for.
The visiting Wawasee Warriors got out early and then used a big third quarter to hand the host Eagles a 66-48 loss Tuesday night.
The Eagles trailed 38-31 at halftime, but the visiting Warriors went on a 17-4 run in the third quarter to put the Eagles in a 55-35 hole.
“They (Wawasee) are a difficult team to play against when coming from behind,” Columbia City Coach Chris Benedict said.

There is a lot of discussion about how they will balance the budget when the income has not re-couped yet from the recession we are in,” Clason said. “We continue to hear that we will be receiving like amounts of funding that we had last year and there will not be any reductions.”

COLUMBIA CITY — The Whitley County Consolidated School Corporation’s Board of School Trustees agreed Monday night to turn up the heat.
Corporation Business Manager Anthony Zickgraf asked the board to approve the purchase of a new heating system for the Marshall Community Building to replace the facility’s nearly deceased boiler system.
