COLUMBIA CITY — “It was not because of a lack of effort,” Columbia City head coach Nicole Gebfert said.
Effort can overcome a lot for an underdog. It can withstand the elements of mother nature. It also can fend off a No. 12 state ranked offense.
Monday night, Columbia City girls’ soccer put up a defensive battle against the Northeast Hoosier Conference’s top team in the Lady Chargers.
Columbia City’s Madi Sjahfiedin, left, and Hailey Woll, center go up for a block on Whitko’s Karissa Olinske Monday night at WHS. The Lady Eagles needed just three games to fly by their county rival 25-14, 25-17, 25-8. The junior varsity also won for CC 25-10, 25-10. The City C team also won 25-14, 25-8.
CHURUBUSCO — When Whitko took the cross county trip to Churubusco Monday there was no question it was going to be a tight boys’ tennis match.
A rivalry will do that nine out of 10 times.
In a battle of singles verse doubles wins, the Wildcats used three points in singles to top Churubusco in the narrowest of margins 3-2.
With two singles positions reaching the finals of the Three Rivers Conference tournament last week, it’s no surprise that Whitko’s strength is in its solo players.
