COLUMBIA CITY â€” A young girl shot two deer with one bullet Wednesday, a feat many hunters donâ€™t experience in a lifetime.
Kelly Schwenn of Etna-Troy Township walked into the woods with her rifle, and walked out of the woods with two does.
Schwenn and her mom, Wendy, have spent the season in a blind in a field west of Albion.
The eight-year-old Northern Heights Elementary School third-grader put down one game to engage another type of game; two in fact.
Kelly was playing her Nintendo DS, a handheld video game, when her mom tapped her on the shoulder to tell her there was a deer in sight.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Warsaw proved that even the best of teams can be beaten.
Columbia City, ranked in the Associated Press and Indiana Coaches Association polls, as well as semi-state qualifier last season, was taken down by the Tigers Saturday night.
The Eaglesâ€™ 28-17 lead in the second quarter turned into a four-point loss, 63-59, in Columbia Cityâ€™s home-opener.
â€śThe good news is, weâ€™re pretty good. The bad news is, (we think) weâ€™re pretty good,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Chris Benedict said. â€śWe let them back in the game and it deflated our momentum. Itâ€™s frustrating.â€ť
