Games Notes: Someone has to lose.
SOUTH WHITLEY — Two Whitley County rivals squared off Tuesday night when the Whitko Lady Wildcat volleyball squad played host to the Churubusco Lady Eagles.
The Lady ’Cats used an experienced attack and good serving to take a 3-0 win over the visiting Lady Eagles.
The Lady Wildcats took game one 25-17 behind a five-point service run by Whitko senior Rachelle Kessie.
COLUMBIA CITY — Usually power and athleticism win out in a sporting event.
A win usually also follows when your top two singles players win in a tennis match.
That was not the case for Bethany Christian when it traveled to DeVol Field courts Tuesday to take on Columbia City in boys’ tennis.
Despite dropping the top two singles matches, the Eagles used a sweep of doubles play along with a undefeated streak by their No. 3 singles player to win a close 3-2 match.
Columbia City's Samara Qureshi (4) sets up a hit for Paige Moore (11) during the first game of the Lady Eagles home match against Garrett Tuesday. Qureshi led City in digs, blocks and assists on the night. Garrett swept three games from Columbia City winning 25-16, 25-15, 25-17.
SOUTH WHITLEY – Sometimes when matches are lopsided the difficulty comes in playing to ones potential, and maintaining focus whether on the winning or losing side of those scores.
That was the challenge facing both Columbia City and Whitko tennis teams when the two Whitley County rivals squared off Monday on the Whitko courts. A veteran Columbia City team took a 5-0 win over the Wildcats, limiting the hosts to five games total.
COLUMBIA CITY — Soccer is a sport of sudden changes. Despite being 80 minutes long, for 62 minutes two teams battled in a scoreless affair Monday at Max Gandy Athletic Field.
After countless attacks and numerous saves on both ends of the field, a deadlocked game at halftime seems to be building for a climatic ending.
COLUMBIA CITY — Putting is the ultimate test of any golfer’s game. It can make a bad tee shot be forgotten when a long putt is sunk or it can turn against you making a great start turn into a snowman on the scorecard.
Monday, Columbia City girls’ golf had just enough putts to post its fifth consecutive dual match score under 200 as a team.
In the process, the Lady Eagles matched their own win total from a year ago beating North Side on the back nine at Eagle Glen Golf Course 198-260.
HUNTINGTON — Two races into the season, Columbia City cross country is starting to get a good taste of where it stands among the best the state has to offer.
No. 14 state ranked Lady Eagles are staking their claim around northeast Indiana with the help of a freshman standout.
In just her second career race at the high school level, Samantha Roush proved herself Saturday finishing second at the Huntington Invitational.
COLUMBIA CITY — Whether the number 13 is lucky or unlucky may be a point of view.
After 12 straight season-opening losses to the Warsaw Tigers, Friday night’s 13th meeting was most fortunate for the Columbia City Eagle football team. The Eagles used a potent offense and an opportunistic defense that caused seven turnovers to post a 35-26 win over the Tigers at the Max Gandy Athletic Field.
