NORTH MANCHESTER Ââ€” A 9-run onslaught by the Eagle batters in the first two innings was enough to give Columbia Cityâ€™s baseball team an 11-6 victory in a sloppy game against the hosting Squires of Manchester Monday night.
Senior catcher Landon Rehrer led the way offensively for Columbia City, with two runs scored, an RBI, a walk and a double while going 2-for-4 at the plate.
The Eagles scored two runs in the top of the first inning and seven in the second to take a commanding 9-0 lead in the middle of the second frame.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls tennis team beat county-rival Whitko in a close 3-2 match Monday night.
The Lady Eagles picked up wins in No. 1 singles and both doubles matches, while Whitko was victorious in No. 2 and No. 3 singles, making the match competitive.
Though the score was close, Columbia City scored its three wins from lopsided matches.
In No. 1 singles, Celine Rongos took a 6-0, 6-4 win over Whitkoâ€™s Laura Alfieri.
The No. 1 doubles team of Macie Hinen and Sydney Ford won 6-2, 6-1 over Abby Marshall and Erin Murphy of Whitko.
NEW HAVEN â€” Whitkoâ€™s baseball team rebounded from a tough loss to Northeast Hoosier Conference Norwell Saturday to top fellow NHC competition, New Haven, Monday night.
The Wildcats posted a strong fifth inning en route to a 10-4 win at New Haven, improving their record to 8-4.
The opening innings were slow offensively, as Whitko scored the only run in the first three frames, while holding the Bulldogs off home plate.
Wildcat Derek Snep scored the opening run off a throwing error by New Havenâ€™s third baseman.
CHURUBUSCO â€” Normally, when a team scores six runs in a high school softball game they can expect to be in the thick of things.
But that doesnâ€™t apply when the other teams scores 10 runs in the first inning alone â€” sending 15 batters to the plate in the same inning.
The Churubusco Lady Eagle softball team found itself on the wrong side of that situation as it dropped a 25-6 contest to a hard-hitting Concordia team in a non-conference contest Monday evening at the Churubusco diamond.
The Eagles found themselves in a 10-0 hole at the end of the first inning.
