DECATUR â€” Though Columbia Cityâ€™s girls golf team suffered another loss Tuesday night, the Lady Eagles posted their best score in three years.
Bellmont, which is undefeated, hosted and dropped Columbia City by a 173-179 score at Cross Creek Golf Course.
Though the team went home without a win, Columbia City Head Coach Jim Thompson was very pleased with the Lady Eaglesâ€™ score.
â€śThatâ€™s as good as Iâ€™ve ever felt with a loss,â€ť Thompson said. â€śBellmont is a good team and we were playing on their course. All of our girls played well. We were in it until the end.â€ť
SOUTH WHITLEYâ€” A big fourth-game comeback helped Whitkoâ€™s volleyball team start 2013 with a win Tuesday.
Whitko downed visiting Lakeland Christian Academy 3-2 â€” 25-22, 19-25, 17-25, 25-13, 15-11.
By the middle of game three, the Lady Wildcats might have wondered if they would take the match the distance, let alone win. Lakeland took advantage of poor Whitko passing to win game two, then never trailed in taking the third game.
â€śWe struggled getting our passes to the net,â€ť said Whitko Head Volleyball Coach Brandy Smith.
FORT WAYNE â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls volleyball team opened its season on the road at Fort Wayne North Side and Head Coach Trish Hinen was hoping to start the season with a three-game sweep.
Unfortunately for the Lady Eagles, a slow start in the opening game cost them the sweep Hinen was hoping for, but solid and consistent play throughout the night allowed Columbia City to leave Allen County with a win.
After dropping the initial contest 25-15, the Eagles turned the match around, winning the next three 27-25, 25-17 and 25-16.
