No longer is it just about being there. Been there, done that.
Now the No. 17 Columbia City Lady Eagles head to the Indiana high school cross country state finals Saturday wanting more than just the experience.
“We’re more focused this year,” senior Samantha Engle said. “Last year it was great just to make it.”
A season capped off with a sectional championship loss doesn’t come without some awards for Columbia City volleyball.
Wednesday, the Northeast Hoosier Conference recognized the Lady Eagles 4-3 record within the NHC with three selections to the all-conference team.
Two seniors grabbed honors in their final season as Lady Eagles. Four-year starter Maddie Hinen led those players with a second-team selection.
For the last four seasons, one of Columbia City’s very own has been among the best the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference has to offer.
In 2007, senior Angela Parry-Lemon was just a freshman at Hanover College when she earned her first all-conference honor in the HCAC.
Four years later, the former Lady Eagle received her fourth award from the conference for a 4-2 record in singles conference play.
Parry-Lemon went 5-5 overall at the No. 1 singles position in her final year as a Panther.
