SOUTH WHITLEY — There was no mistake about it Thursday’s Whitley County track and field meet.
It’s a rivalry.
“To be honest this is a bit of a rival,” Whitko head coach Ron Cherry. “I think our kids took a lot of pride in winning tonight.”
While Columbia City girls’ track enjoyed a win for the visitors, the Wildcats doubled up the Eagles squad 88-44.
SOUTH WHITLEY — Thursday’s dreary weather couldn’t stop a rivalry where both parties got to experience a victory.
When a late afternoon shower canceled some events, the track and field doubleheader at South Whitley carried on with Whitko playing host to the girls and boys track teams from Columbia City.
Whitko got its victory for the night on the boys side of the meet but the Columbia City Lady Eagles evened the score handing the Lady Wildcats a 97-35 loss to remain undefeated on the season.
COLUMBIA CITY — Anyone could tell the weather was a bit windy. There were whitecaps in the outfield.
Even two straight weeks of rainy cold weather, leaky Thursday skies and standing water were not enough to keep the Columbia City Lady Eagles off the diamond at Morsches Park.
Playing for the first time since April 13, the Columbia City Lady Eagles jumped out to an early lead and then held on against a late Manchester rally to take a 7-3 win.
