FORT WAYNE â€” Led by Head Coach Scott Kreiger and his father, Wayne Kreiger, former long-time Columbia City head coach as his assistant, Tuesday nightâ€™s match-up between Canterbury and Whitko was different than just the average game.
Wayne Kreiger spent 33 years as a CCHS Lady Eagle head coach â€“ 33 years of experience against rival Whitko. Along with the Kreigers is freshman Darby Maggard, who transferred to Canterbury this season from Whitko.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Free throws represent just that, an opportunity to score free points with the clock stopped and nobodyâ€™s hand in your face.
Failure to convert a high percentage of free throws usually spells doom for a team trying to play catch up.
That was the case for the Columbia City Lady Eagles as cold shooting from the free throw line and a physical inside game from the Northrop Lady Bruins gave Columbia City a 66-58 loss on senior night at the Donald S. Weeks gymnasium.
CHICAGO â€” Fifth-year senior Leah Eber earned the Big Ten Co-Field Athlete of the Week after her performance at the Gene Edmonds Cup against Indiana State over the weekend.
Eber won all three events in which she was entered and helped Purdue retain the cup for the 17th consecutive year. Eber started the day off by winning the long jump. She posted a mark of 6.25m, the second longest of her career and a meet record.
