Monk is advancing in the discus.

HUNTERTOWN â€” Even under the pressure of the win-or-go-home sectional playoffs, pitcher Jordan Bickle continued to do what heâ€™s been doing all season â€” striking out opposing batters and pitching a lot of innings.
Bickle helped the Columbia City Eagles baseball team defeat the DeKalb Barons 5-1 Thursday night at Carroll High School in the first round of sectional play.
Bickle, the tall, hard-throwing right-hander, fanned 10 Baron batters in a complete game, his fourth outing of the year with double-digit strikeouts.
