COLUMBIA CITY â€” In every contest, there are controllables and uncontrollables â€” those factors that are under the control of the players â€” making blocks and tackles, executing plays, playing through pain. Those factors that lie outside the realm of their control â€” the weather, a slip on loose turf, or a blown officialâ€™s call.
NORTH MANCHESTER â€” Whitkoâ€™s offense ran wild against Three Rivers Conference foe Manchester Friday night.
The Wildcats tallied 382 yards of offense, cruising to a 42-7 win, the â€™Catsâ€™ biggest victory of the season.
BUTLER â€” Fresh off of its loss against Garrett Saturday, the Churubusco Eagle football team traveled to Butler to face off against the Eastside High School Lancers (3-1) Friday night.
After a long game of tug-of-war, numerous penalties and multiple fumbles, the Eagles fell to the Lancers 14-6.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s Lady Eagle volleyball squad took the floor of the Donald S. Weeks Gymnasium with the fourth different starting line-up in as many games in a search for consistent play.

EO-CEDARVILLE â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls golf team suffered a difficult loss to Leo Thursday at Cedar Creek Golf Course. Though the Lady Eagles posted a strong score at 185, the undefeated Leo squad came away with the win with a score of 178. The Lady Lions, 14-0, are state-ranked.

Columbia City gave up its lead and the win to fall 25-15. This week, the Eagles host NHC powerhouse Homestead, which is off to a 2-1 start to the season as well.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The Columbia City Lady Eagle volleyball team had to come back from a one-game deficit and an eight-point hole in game four to claim a 3-1 match victory over the visiting Manchester Lady Squires.
