FORT WAYNE — It’s been a while since Columbia City volleyball has experienced what it did Thursday night.
Not since the 2008 season have the Lady Eagles recorded a win in the Northeast Hoosier Conference. That changed in the conference opener at Homestead.
Behind the frontline attack of senior Paige Moore, City snapped its losing streak in the NHC with a commanding 25-21, 25-21, 25-14 rout of Homestead.
COLUMBIA CITY–– It was a battle between brothers Thursday night at DeVol Field’s tennis courts, with Columbia City tennis coach Doug Stoffel feuding with older brother and coach for the Carroll Chargers, Kyle Stoffel.
After a long hard-fought battle first with the weather, then with the Chargers, Columbia City knocked off the No. 22 state-ranked Chargers, 3-2.
COLUMBIA CITY — With wind gusts strong enough to roll a golf ball across the greens at the Links of Eagle Glen, the Columbia City Lady Eagle golf team squared off against county rival Whitko and the Manchester Lady Squires.
On the cold, wet afternoon scores ballooned for everyone but the Eagles still managed a split falling by a narrow 206-208 score to Manchester, while taking a 208-231 win over the Lady Wildcats.
SYRACUSE – A last-minute change in its lineup and an unlucky bounce cost the Columbia City boys’ soccer team a 1-0 loss to the Wawasee Warriors Wednesday evening.
“One of our varsity starters, the outside midfielder, is sick and in the hospital, and our kids were very concerned about that,” Eagle head coach Chris Bechtold said. “Our kids were focused and were ready to go, and then we had to change the lineup at the last minute when we found out that he wouldn’t be able to play.
All three Whitley County teams take winning records into week five. No. 3 ’Busco gets its first true test at home against No. 8 Angola. Columbia City hits the NHC road to DeKalb. Whitko hosts Wabash for homecoming.
