SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Whitko and Columbia City are bringing two different styles of play to Friday nightâ€™s county-rivalry match up in South Whitley. Columbia City brings a competitive passing game, while Whitko ran much of its season opener on the ground last week.
Whitko quarterback Garrett Elder had a strong performance on the ground in the Wildcatsâ€™ season opener against Wawasee last week. Elder was the leading ballcarrier with 168 of Whitkoâ€™s 312 rushing yards, including an 80-yard break-away run for a touchdown.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The Columbia City Lady Eagle Volleyball Team came into Tuesday nightâ€™s home contest with the Garrett Lady Railroaders sporting an undefeated 2-0 record, thanks to some good play against both North Side and in a come-from-behind win against Angola.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The Columbia City Lady Eagle golf team continued its hot streak Tuesday night, with four girls recording scores in the 40s, the Lady Eagles downed the visiting Huntington North Lady Vikings 187-205 under gray and dripping skies on the front nine of the Eagle Glen course.
Whitkoâ€™s cheer block is gearing up for another home football game this Friday night. The Wildcats are hosting county-rival Columbia City.

SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Whitkoâ€™s girls soccer team lost a hard-fought match against the West Noble Lady Lancers Saturday in South Whitley, 4-2.
