The end of the road: ’Busco falls to Bishop Luers in sectional title game, 21-0

November 2, 2012

CHURUBUSCO — While Churubusco’s football season seemingly ended the same as it did last year — a lopsided loss at Bishop Luers.

But Friday’s 21-0 score is hardly comparable to last season’s 34-7 loss to the Knights.

The Eagles held the score to a one-possession game for the first 39 minutes of play, had several threatening offensive drives and a defense that forced Luers to multiple 4th-and-longs. The Knights were scoreless for two quarters, only reaching the end zone in the final seven minutes.

Go ’Busco go!

’Busco takes on Bishop Luers ... again

November 1, 2012

FORT WAYNE — Churubusco’s football team is seeking revenge after a frustrating 34-7 loss last season in the sectional title game.

The Knights come into this year’s sectional final game with an uncharacteristic 7-4 record, after only posting two losses from 2010-11.

Luers has had a difficult season, with the hype around the firing of coach Matt Lindsay mid-season due to a scandal involving inappropriate video clips on his computer.

Since Lindsay left the field Sept. 13, the Knights have lost two games, including a forfeit to Wayne High School.

Roush makes All-State team: Harrier shines in ‘season that almost wasn’t’

October 29, 2012

TERRE HAUTE — After a long and trying season for Columbia City stand-out runner Samantha Roush, the harrier made Indiana’s All-State team, placing 24th at Saturday’s state finals in Terre Haute.

A junior this year, this season was Roush’s third year at the state meet.
Last year, Roush came in seventh and she placed 16th as a freshman.
While she may not have placed as well as before, Roush spent much of the 2012 season sidelined due to an injury.

“It was the season that almost wasn’t,” Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said. “Twice.”

October 24, 2012

HUNTINGTON — Columbia City basketball stand-out Drew Benedict signed with Huntington University last week, as the Forresters’ first recruit for the 2013 season.

Benedict, a 5-foot-10 senior shooting guard for the Eagles, is one of the area’s top shooters, holding Columbia City High School’s record for most 3-pointers made for a season and career, and is on pace to score more than 1,000 points by the end of this season — making him one of the top five in Columbia City’s history.

Running to state: Injury doesn’t stop Roush en route to Terre Haute

October 22, 2012

FORT WAYNE — Columbia City cross country stand-out Samantha Roush isn’t unfamiliar to injuries this season.

After a preseason injury that knocked her out of practice for nearly six weeks, Roush has been rebuilding her stamina — and confidence — all season.

Just seven days before her third appearance at the New Haven semi-state meet, Roush was in a four-wheeler accident, injuring her tailbone and taking her away from practice most of the week.

“It’s been a very stressful and frustrating season with injuries,” Roush said. “I was very tired today.”
