Matteson eases freshman from ISMS to Col. City

August 23, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Not every freshman class has a smooth transition into the sports realm from middle school — but this season, Columbia City’s cross country runners do.

Jason Matteson, who has coached cross country for Indian Springs Middle School for the last three years, is one of two new assistant coaches at Columbia City High School this season.

“He really helped coach these guys as eighth graders,” Columbia City Head Cross Country Coach Bob Fahl said. “We brought him up here as a follow through. He’ll be a big asset to us.”

School comes first for Lady Eagle volleyball

August 23, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — While winning games are always the goal, Columbia City’s girls volleyball team has another priority — the classroom.

Every junior and senior on the Lady Eagles’ squad is a member of the CCHS National Honor Society. Last season, the girls volleyball squad had one of the top grade-point averages in the school.

“They’re very well-rounded girls,” Columbia City Head Coach Trish Hinen said.

Even during the busy fall season with late nights and practices, Hinen said the girls’ grades hardly waiver.

“We do grade checks every Friday,” Hinen said.

Lady ’Cats drop season opener, 7-3

August 23, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — The result from the opening night performance was not what Head Coach Gary Sims had in mind.

At home to kick off their 2013 soccer campaign, the Whitko Lady Wildcats fell behind early and never recovered as the Cougars from Central Noble came away with a 7-3 win.

Following the contest, Sims was having a difficult time putting into words his disappointment.

“We are way better than this,” Sims said. “Tonight, we ran a lot, but we didn’t play soccer.”

’Busco rallies to hold off Garrett

CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco’s volleyball team rallied in game four to down visiting Garrett for its first win of the season Thursday.

The Lady Eagles (1-1), took the lead, 2-0. Victory was in sight in game three, with ‘Busco holding a 24-21 advantage.

Garrett then came back, running off five consecutive points to steal game 3, 26-24.

Not wanting the same trend to repeat in game four, Churubusco served aggressively, taking an 8-1 edge and not relinquishing the lead for the remainder of the match.

Col. City soccer tops Whitko, 2-0

August 23, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City’s boys soccer team held its perfect record after topping county-rival Whitko Thursday night, 2-0.

In a slow start to the Eagles’ home opener, Columbia City picked up its first goal with less than two minutes left of the 40-minute first half.

Offensive stand-out Drake Dewitt knocked the ball past Whitko goalkeeper Jacob Helton to take a 1-0 lead.

Dewitt had a hat-trick performance in the Eagles’ season opener at Central Noble Tuesday, when Columbia City won 3-2.
