COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia City wrestling alumni â€“ on hand for Alumni Night Wednesday â€“ didnâ€™t quite get the show they were hoping for.
The Eagles lost to East Noble, 60-10.
â€śI was very proud of our guys,â€ť said Eagle Head Coach Blane Culp. â€śFor the most part our guys really went after them. Itâ€™s a tough team. (Head Coach) Keith Koffarâ€™s got them going.â€ť
After five matches, East Noble led 21-4.
Despite the loss, the Eagles only surrendered four pins in 12 matches, something Culp said the coaches have stressed to the team this year.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Eagle junior varsity wrestling got a taste of victory Wednesday, winning three of its four matches and defeating East Nobleâ€™s JV squad 15-6.
Brice Bauer opened the meet at 145 pounds with a 9-3 win over his Knight opponent. Bauer was down 3-0 heading into the final period.
Head Coach Blane Culp said the team preaches that it is a six-minute match and Bauer showed that by continuing to work.
At 152 and having to mount several counters, Columbia Cityâ€™s Hunter LaRue got a pinfall victory with time expiring in the first period.
WOODBURN â€” Churubuscoâ€™s boys basketball team traveled to Woodlan Wednesday night to post a 71-49 win and improve the Eagles to a winning record (4-3).
â€™Buscoâ€™s Josh LeFever scored 10 of the Eaglesâ€™ 16 first-quarter points, while the defense held the Warriors to nine.
â€śHe (LeFever) got off on a real good roll in the first quarter,â€ť Churubusco Head Coach Mike McBride said. â€śIn the first quarter we did a nice job defensively, they have some kids that shoot it pretty well and we stopped them.â€ť
