SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Coming hot off of its victory against Wabash Tuesday, the Whitko Lady Wildcats varsity volleyball team defeated the Hamilton Marines Thursday night, 3-0. Now, with an 8-2 record, the Lady Wildcats are just one game shy of tying last seasonâ€™s record of nine wins.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Both Whitko boys and girls soccer teams faced off against the Eastbrook Panthers Wednesday. The boys team ended the game with a tie, finishing 1-1. The Lady Wildcats were hard-pressed to score against the Lady Panthers and fell 0-6.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Whitkoâ€™s boys tennis team played against Tippecanoe Valley High School at home Tuesday, defeating the Vikings 4-1. Cole Bechtold scored a point in No. 1 singles, winning 6-4, 6-4.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Itâ€™s been a numbers game for Columbia Cityâ€™s boys tennis team this season. Not the numbers on the scoreboard, but the number of players on the court. Before the season, the squad only had two players on the team. That number grew to five, but still not enough to have a full varsity team.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” On Monday, the Columbia City Lady Eagle volleyball team found itself on the short end of a 3-1 decision to Blackhawk Christian. Tuesday night, the Lady Eagles, after a first game setback, combined the same stingy defense from Monday night with a long, sought-after, consistent offense to down Northeast Hoosier Conference foe Norwell 3-1.
CHURUBUSCO â€” There were consistent sounds in the gym at Churubusco High School Tuesday night. First, there would be the sound of a hand smacking a volleyball, followed by the sound of that ball slamming in to the floor. Hamilton heard that sound too many times against the Lady Eagles volleyball team, falling in three quick matches.
CHURUBUSCO â€” Churubuscoâ€™s boys tennis played Fort Wayne North Side Monday at home, winning 5-0. No. 1 singles player Luke Lillmars and the No. 1 doubles team of Landon Lillmars and Justin Schoeph won in straight, 6-0, 6-0 sets.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” The Lady Wildcats varsity volleyball team took down the Wabash Apaches Tuesday, winning 3-0. Match leaders for the team were Delaney Ray with 11 kills, Elaine Warner with 29 assists, Tressa Keim with 15 digs and Kaity Reed with two blocks and two aces.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Somebody once said that a good defense was the best offense. But to every adage there is an exception, as the Columbia City Lady Eagle volleyball team found out on Monday night. In spite of playing some of their best defensive ball against a very hard-hitting Blackhawk Christian squad, the Lady Eagles fell in four games, 23-25, 27-25, 12-25 and 22-25 in their first home contest of the week.
