COLUMBIA CITY â€” It may not have been perfect, like its season-opening perfect-game win over Marion, but the Columbia City Lady Eagle Softball team used a potent offense and solid pitching to post a 9-2 win over the visiting Garrett Lady Railroaders.
OSSIAN â€”Whitkoâ€™s baseball team lost in 12 innings to Norwell (7-1) Wednesday night in Ossian.
After taking a 3-0 lead in the first inning, the Knights worked their way back in the ballgame to tie the score at four in the seventh inning.
The Wildcats went scoreless for six frames, and Norwell finally scored a run at the bottom of the 12th to end the game, 5-4.
Wyatt Wolf was the first to cross home plate Wednesday, scoring off a double by Colin Nicodemus. Nicodemus was close behind, getting the Wildcatsâ€™ second run from a single by Ryan Weigold.

Eagle Connor Slavich pitched an 11-strike-out shut-out, with no walks and four hits on seven innings.
Columbia City scored two runs in the first inning, two in the last inning and one in the second, leaving the third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings run-less.

Rounding out the singles action were the No. 3s. Alaina Beckner lost to Norwellâ€™s Rachel Phillips, 6-2, 6-4.
GOSHEN â€” Churubuscoâ€™s baseball and softball teams must have wondered where the sunshine and warm temperatures of last week went as they were greeted by frigid temperatures and gale force winds, as well as a Northeast Corner Conference foe when they traveled to Fairfield for a contests with the host Falcons.
For both â€™Busco squads, errors proved to be costly as the Lady Eagles fell by a 7-0 score and the baseball team fell behind 12-1 after the first inning on the way to an 18-7 loss.
For the Lady Eagles, a set of costly errors put them in a hole in the bottom of the second inning.
COLUMBIA CITY â€”Churubusco won Whitley Countyâ€™s golf match Tuesday at Eagle Glen, beating Columbia City by seven strokes and Whitko by 52.
â€™Buscoâ€™s Brad Martin was the medalist, shooting a 42 in the front nine of the par 32 course. Danny Zawlocki of Whitko wasnâ€™t far behind, finishing with a 44, the best for the â€™Cats and good for second overall.
Four Whitley Countly linksters shot a 45 â€”two from Columbia City and two from Churubusco.
Several of tonight's events have been cancelled tonight due to weather.
Whitko's home baseball and softball games, Columbia City's game at Wawasee and Col. City's track meet have all been confirmed to be cancelled.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s softball team opened its season in prime fashion Monday night, hosting Marion in a perfect 10-0 win.
The game was cut short after the Lady Eagles took a 10-0 lead in the fifth inning after a run by junior Alyssa Brandt.
Senior Hannah Schnorr boosted the score in the third inning with a grand slam to take an 8-0 lead.
Columbia City not only put out a strong offensive performance by senior Allie Vodde, who not only pitched a shut-out, but along with her teammates didnâ€™t allow a single Marion runner on base.
Vodde had 10 strikeouts on 16 at bats.
