COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia City senior Seth Kissinger is stepping off the football field and putting on his running shoes this fall.
After playing most of his high school career with the pigskin, he made a tough decision to leave the squad and join cross country this fall.
â€śIt was a hard decision,â€ť Kissinger said. â€śI had to ask myself what the better option was for my future.â€ť
Kissinger took on the 800-meter run last spring in track and wanted to make running a more year-round practice to increase his chances of a scholarship.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia City High School 2013 graduate Jordan Bickle is headed to the Big Ten to play NCAA Division I baseball.
Bickle recently signed with Purdue University to play baseball in the 2014 season.
â€śIâ€™m definitely on the team,â€ť said Bickle when asked about his status on the Boilermakers spring roster.
Bickleâ€™s path to playing collegiate baseball for the Boilermakers wasnâ€™t a straight one. In fact, his mind was not made up until after graduation day at CCHS.
