COLUMBIA CITY â€” Ran-dall Carpenter, MD, made local history at Parkview Whitley Hospital by delivering the last baby born at the old hospital Oct. 17, and the first baby born in the new hospital four days later on Oct. 21, just a day after the hospital officially opened.
Parkview Whitley Hospitalâ€™s first baby to be born in the new facility is Alexander Dean Crampton, born to Barbara Gideon and Christian Crampton, of Columbia City.
Alexander, who was born at 11:14 a.m. on Friday, weighed 6 pounds, 8 ounces at birth, and was 19 inches long.
CARROLL â€” Columbia City girlsâ€™ volleyball team headed to Carroll High School Saturday to face East Noble in the second round of sectional play. The Lady Eagles were handed an unfortunate, season-ending lost to the Lady Knights, 3-1.
Columbia City was trailing East Noble in much of the first game until it took the momentum and an 18-15 lead.
Samara Qureshi took the serve and didnâ€™t relinquish it until Columbia City had scored five-straight points to make it 20-18.
FORT WAYNE â€” Whitkoâ€™s boys cross country team seemed a little out of place at the awards ceremony Saturday at New Havenâ€™s semi-state meet.
Barefooted and surrounded by big-town schools like Mishawaka, Marion, South Bend St. Joseph, Carroll, Warsaw and Snider, the Wildcats took the podium for their first ever sixth-place finish, good enough for a trip to the state meet.
Taking the trip to Terre Haute with them will be Columbia Cityâ€™s Samantha Roush, who placed second individually.
