COLUMBIA CITY — The Columbia City boys soccer team followed the footsteps of the Lady Eagles Tuesday night with a 5-0 win at home against Central Noble to kick off the season.
“It is a good indication for the season having a 5-0 win,” said head coach Chris Bechtold.
Though it was a team effort, the seniors demonstrated their experience, collecting all the points and assists between them.
Coming off its best season in over 20 years, Columbia City cross country came in with bigger and brighter expectations for 2010.
Preseason ranked No. 14 in the girls side of things, the Lady Eagles got an early test in the season with sectional foe Huntington North meeting them at the DeKalb Invitational.
A meet scored only in individual times, No. 14 Columbia City filled three of the top five finishing positions.
Countryside Drive is expected to be closed at the intersection with state Route 9 for at least three hours today after a semi spilled its load of steel sheets about 8:15 a.m. today. The 32,000 pounds of steel will be loaded one sheet at a time back onto the semi trailer.
COLUMBIA CITY — It’s a situation that might have played out differently a season ago.
Quickly up two games, Columbia City saw a potential shut out turn against them Tuesday night in a season opening match at home against North Side.
After dropping a 24-20 lead in the third game, the Lady Eagles were put in the same situation in game four. Avoiding an agonizing fifth game, Columbia City used its senior leadership along with the addition of a freshman libero to seal the victory the second time around.
COLUMBIA CITY — Just three dual matches, the 2010 season has been more successful than years prior for Columbia City girls’ golf.
With three wins to their credit last season, the Lady Eagles nearly reached that mark this season.
Tuesday, Columbia City opened Northeast Hoosier Conference play at Eagle Glen Golf Course against Bellmont. The Lady Eagles used three scores in the 40s along with a win at every position to start the conference off on a winning note 197-217.
