Columbia City's golf team hosted and fell to Homestead Friday night. See The Post & Mail's sports section for results and comments from Eagle Head Coach Andrew Thompson. Pictured, Columbia City's top two linksters, freshmen Tyler Green and Spencer Kilmek (putting).
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Though Columbia Cityâ€™s golf team didnâ€™t end the night victorious Friday, the Eagles came the closest to beating Homestead since 2009.
Columbia City fell 157-162, but it wasnâ€™t from lack of talent on the Spartansâ€™ end.
Columbia Cityâ€™s Tyler Green finished on par with 36 strokes. Fellow Eagle Spencer Klimek also finished under 40, with a 39. Green rebounded from a 41 the night before, a prediction of Head Coach Andrew Thompsonâ€™s that held true.
â€śIt was nice to see Tyler recover from last night and shoot par at home,â€ť Thompson said.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” They survived.
More than once Columbia Cityâ€™s Lady Eaglesâ€™ softball team had a big inning against Churubusco, only to have the visitors respond. Columbia City emerged victorious though Friday with a 9-8 win.
The winning run came on a wild pitch. Hannah Schnorr of Columbia City was on third waiting and raced across the plate in the bottom of the sixth for the deciding score.
â€śI told Schnorr be ready, weâ€™ve got to score,â€ť said Columbia City Softball Head Coach Steve Cox.
