ck teams struggled against a strong field in the Northeast Hoosier Conference meet this week.
With the odds against them, Columbia Cityâs boys placed seventh and the girls took eighth out of eight schools in the NHC.
The meet began Friday, but was postponed to Monday after thunderstorms hit New Haven.
Monday was also the night scheduled for the Columbia City High School Honors Convocation, which several track athletes were slated to receive awards.
Along with that distraction, some athletes were injured or unable to participate.
