SOUTH WHITLEY ‚ÄĒ ‚ÄúSwender‚Äôs not going to believe this, but I‚Äôll make him,‚ÄĚ said Whitko‚Äôs Assistant Coach Josh Mohr with a laugh in his voice.

KENDALLVILLE ‚ÄĒ The Columbia City football team‚Äôs roller coaster season fell off a cliff against Northeast Hoosier Conference foe, the East Noble Knights Friday. A week after the Eagles came within a whisker of upsetting undefeated New Haven, Columbia City ended up on the wrong end of a 79-7 shellacking by the Knights.
With the Columbia City sidelines bearing a strong resemblance to an orthopedics ward, the Eagles were forced into using several players with almost no varsity experience to fill out an injury depleted receiving corps and defensive backfield.
