CHURUBUSCO — While Tuesday night was the fourth or fifth game of the season for most boys’ basketball teams including Columbia City (3-1), it was the first for Churubusco (0-1).
After a deep postseason run in football, ’Busco got a late start holding its first game two weeks after Columbia City’s season opener.
The seasoned Eagles showed the experience of three prior games capitalizing on 19 Churubusco turnovers and a 48 percent shooting night. City held off a scrappy ’Busco team 51-41.
SOUTH WHITLEY — Fourteen first-quarter points by senior Max Elder was all Whitko (3-1) needed Tuesday night to pull away from Central Noble (1-3) at home.
Along with junior Logan Irwin’s 18 points, the Wildcats basketball team put up 79 points on the Cougars winning 79-43.
The first quarter was enough to seal a victory for Whitko. Scoring 27 points, the ’Cats held a 19-point lead after one quarter, 27-8.
COLUMBIA CITY — The Columbia City swim teams took the pool for their first and only home meet Tuesday night.
The Eagles hosted North Side at Whitley County’s YMCA and took a win over the Redskins, with the boys winning 130-39 and the girls victorious 133-30, advancing their record to 3-1.
“Our home meet is good for the kids so the parents can come out,” Columbia City head coach Phil Stanczak said.
