COLUMBIA CITY â€” A legend in Columbia Cityâ€™s boys basketball was present at the Eaglesâ€™ game against Northrop Saturday.
Bill Schwarz, a 1960 graduate and CCHS basketballâ€™s all-time leading scorer, traveled to the Donald S. Weeks gymnasium from his home in Chicago for Columbia Cityâ€™s senior night.
The Eaglesâ€™ senior night had special meaning, as two Columbia City players are the closest to Schwarzâ€™s record that any hoopster has been since 1977.

Indiana Techâ€™s Warriors completed the year in second place in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference, and placed fourth in the WHAC Championship.

He bowled in all four conference jamborees, averaging a 186.94 in 16 ga-mes. He ranked ninth in the conference.
Arickâ€™s best finish was at the third competition, when he finished fourth with a 195.25 average.
