They were known to voters as “hands down, the most exciting team of the decade.”
It’s the team that made “this community become ‘Hoosiers.’”
The Post & Mail readers spoke. The 2004 state finalist Columbia City boys’ basketball team is “definitely the best team of the decade.”
Coming up on a seventh season since the faithful run to the state finals, the feeling remains the same in Columbia City.
“A season to remember,” one voter said in The Post & Mail’s best of the decade contest.
Voted second in the best team of the decade, the 2005-2006 Columbia City Eagle wrestling team had big shoes to fill. The previous two teams had set high standards with both of them reaching the IHSAA team state finals and finishing in the top four each year.
The 2006 team lived up to those expectations returning the Eagles to the team state finals for a top four finish for a third consecutive season.
