WARSAW â Columbia City High School started its swim program 15 years ago. Assistant Coach Phil Stanczak has been around for nearly all of them.
âIn my 14 years of doing this, Iâve never seen that happen,â said Stanczak. âThatâ being sending an Eagle diver â boy or girl â to the state regional tournament.
That changed Saturday. Lady Eagle diver junior Audrey Gruettert finished in the top four at the Warsaw sectional, advancing her to regionals Tuesday. Gruettertâs 306.7 score placed her in fourth.
âIâm very excited; still kind of in shock,â Gruettert said.
CHURUBUSCO â The crowd in Churubusco, having just watched a Lady Eagle loss to Lakeland, watched its boys team return the favor to the Lakers in the second contest of the âBusco-hosted double-header by a score of 47-44.
In the first eight minutes, the score was knotted at two, four and nine. Eagles Smith, Austin Goepfrich, Dylan Jones and Josh LeFever all scored, as did Lakers Tim Abbott, Cody Richardson and Jalen King. King hit from long range as the buzzer sounded to even the score at 9-9.
Tied at 13, Lakeland went on a tear, notching nine of the next 12 points.
