Hoops . . . or Hockey?

December 15, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City fans saw what looked more like a hockey match than a boys basketball game Friday night.

The Eagles hosted East Noble in the Northeast Hoosier Conference opener — in a game with two technical fouls and two Columbia City players who took a trip to the trainer’s office with injuries.

Despite the rough-housing, the Eagles came out with their sixth victory, by a 76-35 score — improving to 6-0.

The physical play began late in the first quarter, when Columbia City had a 20-12 lead.

TRAGEDY STRIKES: Locals weigh-in on Connecticut shooting

COLUMBIA CITY — The Connecticut massacre has touched the lives of people across the nation — even in Whitley County — 750 miles from the tragedy.

Before Columbia City High School’s boys basketball game Friday night, officials held a moment of silence in honor of the 26 lives lost after a gunman opened fire in an elementary school — killing 20 children.

The rampage is the nation’s second-deadliest school shooting, exceeded only by the Virginia Tech shooting that claimed 33 lives in 2007.
