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 Cityâs golf team didnât end the night victorious Friday, the Eagles came the closest to beating Homestead since 2009.
Columbia City fell 157-162, but it wasnât from lack of talent on the Spartansâ end.
Columbia Cityâs 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 Thompsonâs that held true.
âIt was nice to see Tyler recover from last night and shoot par at home,â Thompson said.
COLUMBIA CITY â They survived.
More than once Columbia Cityâs 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.
âI told Schnorr be ready, weâve got to score,â said Columbia City Softball Head Coach Steve Cox.
