WARSAW â€” The Eagles tennis team wasnâ€™t ready to end their stand-out season at Warsawâ€™s sectional Saturday.
After its first win in over 30 years against Homestead a couple weeks ago, Columbia City walked away with its first sectional in the schoolâ€™s history.
The Eagles fought off the weekâ€™s rough weather and a 2-1 deficit to overcome Warsaw in the championship match.
Many area sectional matches were postponed for rain, forcing several teams to play two matches in one day.
The Eagles won in a lopsided 5-0 match over Whitko in the first round.
