CHURUBUSCO ‚ÄĒ It all came at once for Churubusco‚Äôs softball team.
A big fifth inning for the Lady Eagles keyed them to victory Wednesday against Eastside. ‚ÄėBusco won, 6-3.
The Lady Eagles scored all six of their runs of the contest in the fifth inning. After that, the game was 6-0 in their favor.
Eastside chipped away, scoring two in the sixth and one in the seventh, but it was not enough to take away the lead that Churubusco had built.

COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ Typically people in Whitley County would not associate 4-H with life inside the city limits.
However, Marley Heritier is breaking the stereotype of 4-H being just for those that live in the country.
She became involved in the 4-H program while growing up within the city limits of Columbia City.
Marley is in her second year of 4-H, and is the daughter of Christian Heritier and Cathy Heritier.
She attends Mary Raber Elementary School where she is a fourth grader. She has one older brother, Julian, who is in his fourth year of the 4-H program.
Columbia City‚Äôs softball team will hold its senior night Friday at the home game against Central Noble at 5 p.m.

COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ ‚ÄúThe sky is the limit for Celine.‚ÄĚ
Kathleen Myers, Columbia City‚Äôs head tennis coach, believes in her No. 1 singles player.
But who wouldn‚Äôt?
Celine Rongos is undefeated after 14 matches, topping all Northeast Hoosier Conference opponents that she‚Äôs faced.
It‚Äôs not uncommon to see a 6-0, 6-0 score next to Rongos‚Äô name ‚ÄĒ but the wins didn‚Äôt come without hard work.
‚ÄúCeline doesn‚Äôt just play from March to May,‚ÄĚ Myers said. ‚ÄúShe works a number of hours outside the tennis season and has a very strong work ethic.‚ÄĚ
