COLUMBIA CITY â€” It may not have been perfect, like its season-opening perfect-game win over Marion, but the Columbia City Lady Eagle Softball team used a potent offense and solid pitching to post a 9-2 win over the visiting Garrett Lady Railroaders.
OSSIAN â€”Whitkoâ€™s baseball team lost in 12 innings to Norwell (7-1) Wednesday night in Ossian.
After taking a 3-0 lead in the first inning, the Knights worked their way back in the ballgame to tie the score at four in the seventh inning.
The Wildcats went scoreless for six frames, and Norwell finally scored a run at the bottom of the 12th to end the game, 5-4.
Wyatt Wolf was the first to cross home plate Wednesday, scoring off a double by Colin Nicodemus. Nicodemus was close behind, getting the Wildcatsâ€™ second run from a single by Ryan Weigold.
