COLUMBIA CITY — Perhaps morning games are not the Columbia City boys’ soccer team’s cup of tea. Had the game started 12 minutes later, the outcome may have been different.
The Eagles hosted the Huntington North Vikings Saturday morning and were handed a 4-1 loss.
In the first 12 minutes, the Vikings jumped out to an early lead that Columbia City was unable to recover from. Huntington North scored three quick goals before the Eagles could wipe the sleep from their eyes.
MARION — The day was full of ranked teams and quality runners at the Marion Invitational Saturday.

Menzie placed eighth out of 198 runners in the field with his time of 16:23.
