COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s football team is about to run the proverbial gauntlet in the Northeast Hoosier Conference.
Three consecutive games with ranked opponents loom. The first, this Friday at 7 p.m., will be a road contest at New Haven.
The Bulldogs are currently ranked fifth in the Associated Press poll for Class 4A and are a perfect 5-0 for 2013.
After New Haven, the Eagles will take on East Noble, currently ranked ninth in Class 4A, on Oct. 4. The ranked slate concludes Oct. 11 when Columbia City travels to Carroll, ranked 15th in Class 6A.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” After an 0-2 start, Whitkoâ€™s football team has put its struggles in the past with a three-game winning streak.
More importantly for the Wildcats, the three consecutive victories have all come against Three Rivers Conference (TRC) opponents.
Whitko has scored 138 points in the three wins, including a 51-7 road win against Wabash last week.
Now, the Wildcats will welcome Northfield to the confines of South Whitley in an effort to move the streak to four in a row and stay in the hunt for a conference championship.
CHURUBUSCO â€” Churubuscoâ€™s football team is now ranked fourth in the Associated Press poll for Class 2A, and the 5-0 Eagles will once again welcome a larger school to their home field Friday.
One week after topping Class 4A Angola 14-7, â€™Busco will host West Noble Friday in a game set to kick off at 7 p.m.
The Chargers were shut out last week, 33-0, by Lakeland, which is the only other unbeaten squad in the Northeast Corner Conference besides Churubusco.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” An 18-year-old man will stand trial next week for attempted murder.
Dakota R. Kimbler, 18, will have his trial begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday in Whitley County Circuit Court. The jury will convene at that time.
Kimbler was arrested Dec. 9 of last year, when he was 17 years old. In addition to attempted murder, he was also charged with receiving stolen property, battery causing bodily injury and carrying a handgun without a permit.
