Eagles 10-runned by Angola, 13-3

May 21, 2013

ANGOLA — Whatever momentum Columbia City’s baseball team had built up heading towards sectionals was lost Monday night at Angola.

The Eagles were 10-runned by the Hornets by a final of 13-3 after five innings.

Columbia City was only down 5-3 in the middle of the fifth frame.

However, what started as a feasible deficit to overcome turned into an insurmountable one that ultimately ended the game without the Eagles getting another turn to bat. Angola scored eight runs in the bottom of the fifth to win the matchup, 13-3.

KENDALLVILLE — Churubusco sophomore linkster Beau Barkley made 1st-Team All-Northeast Corner Conference for the second time Saturday, placing eighth.

Martin was also named 1st-Team All-Conference, finishing 12th for the Eagles.

Columbia City beats Northrop

May 19, 2013

FORT WAYNE — Columbia City rode two home runs to victory in a 9-7 win over Northrop Friday night.

The first was a two-run shot over the left field fence off the bat of Eagle third baseman Jordan Bickle. His dinger came in the top of the first inning, giving Columbia City a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.

“I think the key to the game was starting it off offensively with Bickle’s home run. I think that got us going,” said Columbia City Head Coach Zac Bireley.

The other homer, also to left field, was a grand slam by right fielder Keaton Reed in the third frame that put the Eagles up 7-1.

Whitko falls to Prairie Heights

May 19, 2013

LAGRANGE — Whitko’s baseball team lost a road contest to Prairie Heights Saturday.

The Wildcats fell by a final score of 7-3.

Both teams struck early. Whitko opened with a 3-0 lead after the top of the first inning. The Panthers quickly struck back in the bottom of the first with three runs of their own to tie the score.

Eagles sweep Bishop Dwenger

May 19, 2013

FORT WAYNE — Columbia City took two from Bishop Dwenger in a double header Saturday at Shoaff Park.

The Eagles won the morning game 8-3, and then beat the Saints again by a final of 13-3.

Columbia City betters its record to 13-8 with the two wins. Both victories are part of an important turn-around for the Eagles, who before Saturday had a 4-6 record so far in May.

“I think we were in the game, as opposed to other games we’ve had this last month,” said Columbia City Head Coach Zac Bireley.

Girls tracksters prep for regional

May 17, 2013

FORT WAYNE — Nearly 20 Whitley County girls athletes are headed to the Northrop Regional track meet Tuesday.

Though all have different goals and aspirations for the rest of the season, one thing is certain — all are happy to stay in the mix for another week.

For Columbia City junior Samantha Roush, its a state finals bid she’s looking for. For Whitko senior Josie Sparks, it’s a school record.
