NORTH MANCHESTER â€” The county golf match Tuesday was everything it was intended to be.
All three schools were seperated by six strokes, with Columbia Cityâ€™s squad, led by three freshmen, taking the win.
â€śIt turned out to be a real competitive match,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said. â€śI didnâ€™t know what to expect, it was only our second night on a golf course.â€ť
Many area golf teams have been forced to practice inside due to weather conditions.
â€śWe put them right into the frying pan,â€ť Thompson said.
FORT WAYNE â€” â€śThe weather may have been hot, but our runners, jumpers and throwers were hotter last night,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said after the Lady Eagles track team beat Homestead Tuesday.
â€śHomestead has twice as many kids on the rosters as we do,â€ť Fahl said. â€śI thought it was going to be close.â€ť
The score wasnâ€™t as close as Fahl thought itâ€™d be. In fact, Columbia City won by 22 points after taking first place in 11 out of 16 events.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” A five-run third inning fueled by a grand slam home run helped the visiting Wawasee Lady Warriors hand the Columbia City Lady Eagle softball team an 11-3 loss in the Eagles home opener Tuesday night at Morsches Park.
The first inning saw only one base runner for each squad. The Warriors saw their runner cut down as they were caught off base by the Lady Eagles.
Columbia Cityâ€™s Allie Vodde drew a walk but that was the only offense for the Eagles in the inning.
