Editor‚Äôs note: The following is the fourth of a four-part series on Columbia City‚Äôs football team
COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ One might wonder if anything could have been done to prevent the onslaught of injuries the Columbia City football team suffered in 2012.
‚ÄúSometimes it‚Äôs just a freak-type injury,‚ÄĚ said head coach Randy Hudgins. ‚ÄúYou‚Äôre not really sure you can prevent that, especially with bone breaks and concussions.‚ÄĚ
In regards to seasons to come, Hudgins said concentrated steps have already been taken to lessen the likelihood of players injuring themselves.
CHURUBUSCO ‚ÄĒ In the final regular season match, two Whitley County wrestling teams squared off on Churubusco‚Äôs Senior Night.
The host Eagles used an advantage in the upper weight classes to build a lead on their way to a 57-19 win over the visiting Whitko Wildcats.
With both teams heading into their conference tournaments Saturday, both the Eagles and the Wildcats were looking to establish some momentum.
Bouts started at 126 pounds, with Eagle sophomore Chase Downing scoring a pinfall win over Whitko‚Äôs Evan Cozad at the 1:02 mark of the first period, putting the hosts up 6-0.
