OSSIAN â€” The Columbia City Lady Eagle swim team made a strong season opening appearance at the Norwell Invitational.

CHURUBUSCO â€” Clutch free-throw shooting down the stretch made the difference in Whitkoâ€™s win against Churubusco Saturday.
The Lady Wildcats won the Whitley County rivalry game by a final of 56-52.
Churubusco had a six-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. Consecutive steals and baskets from Whitko freshmen Brianna Cumberland and Aly Reiff cut the Lady Eagle lead to just one.
From that point, Whitko got to the line often enough to close the gap. The free-throw shooting was not perfect, but Cumberland knocked down four in a row to seal the win in the gameâ€™s final minute.
