MIDDLEBURYâ€” Northridgeâ€™s girls basketball team used a big first half lead to defeat Columbia City Friday.
The Lady Raiders won by a final margin of 62-32.
The game was the first in pool play for both teams in Northridgeâ€™s Tournament.
Columbia City (7-5) will take on Andrean tomorrow morning in the tournament.
Lady Eagle Head Coach Amy Shearer said a lack of effort from her team allowed too many easy baskets for Northridge.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s boys basketball team is off to a struggling start in the squadâ€™s holiday tournament.
The Eagles hosted the opening day of the Carroll Shootout, but home-court advantage wasnâ€™t enough for Columbia City, as the team fell 57-41 to Mooresville in the opening game at noon, and 62-30 to Munster in the late game Friday.
Columbia Cityâ€™s Justin Bachelder led the Eagles against Mooresville with 11 points.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The 7-4 record may not show it, but Columbia Cityâ€™s girls basketball team could easily be undefeated this season.
Three of the Lady Eaglesâ€™ losses have been by five points or less, and the fourth loss was in overtime by seven points.
Glass-half-empty critics may view the losses as a weakness of the team, not able to come out on top of close games, but statistics shine a different light on the teamâ€™s effort.
