COLUMBIA CITY — Coming out as a freshman, Columbia City’s J.T. Biggs wasn’t on the radar for college athletics.
He’ll be the first to admit it.
“My freshman year I wasn’t the greatest at all by any means,” Biggs said. “I was playing at the bottom of the barrel.”
By his senior season, Biggs had changed that helping No. 1 doubles go 7-0 in the Northeast Hoosier Conference and finding a spot at the collegiate level.
Five boys and five girls from the Churubusco track and field team will compete at the indoor state finals Saturday on the campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette. Front row, from left: Danielle Pippenger (long jump), Peyton Summers (55-meter dash), Heather Monk (shot put), Katie Monk (shot put), Erika Lehner (shot put). Back row: Jeremy Forker (800-meter relay), Alex Zolman (800 relay, long jump), Zack Armstead (800 relay, pole vault), Austin McClure (shot put), Kyle Mathewson (800 relay, long jump, 55-meter dash).
