WARSAW â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s varsity baseball team was finally able to take to the diamond after three cancelled games due to weather.

Both teams had to deal with the cold, but Columbia City managed to win a close game over the Tigers, 5-4.
The Eagleâ€™s opening night starting pitcher, Jordan Bickle, took a no-hit bid into the fifth inning while on his way to earning the win.

Alex Stoddard led Whitko with 4-for-4 batting, scoring three runs with an RBI.
â€śStoddard was huge out of the lead-off spot, reaching base all five times,â€ť Whitko Head Coach Erik Hisner said. â€śWe had a lot of guys to a lot of little things tonight to help us earn this victory.â€ť
