NEW HAVEN â€” The Northeast Hoosier Conference Track and Field Meet had some expected outcomes Tuesday night.
Both the as-expected closely-contested girlsâ€™ competition, where second through sixth places were separated by only 28 points, and the favored Carroll boys held off host New Haven and Homestead to join the Carroll girls as team champions.
But there were also some surprises, as an improving Columbia City boys team more than doubled its point total from last year to take fourth.
