Run ‘n’ gun: Eagles rally from 14-point deficit to stay undefeated

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City’s boys basketball team went from hockey-like, physical play on Friday against East Noble to the run-and-gun tempo of Wawasee on Tuesday.

Despite being caught off guard early in the contest and facing a 14-point deficit, the Eagles pulled out an 89-66 win over the Warriors.

“I’m proud of the way our guys stuck with it,” said Columbia City head coach Chris Benedict. “They did a really good job of keeping their composure.”

Hoops . . . or Hockey?

December 15, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City fans saw what looked more like a hockey match than a boys basketball game Friday night.

The Eagles hosted East Noble in the Northeast Hoosier Conference opener — in a game with two technical fouls and two Columbia City players who took a trip to the trainer’s office with injuries.

Despite the rough-housing, the Eagles came out with their sixth victory, by a 76-35 score — improving to 6-0.

The physical play began late in the first quarter, when Columbia City had a 20-12 lead.

DELAND — Former Whitko basketball stand-out and freshman point guard at Stetson University Logan Irwin has left the Division I school and plans to transfer closer to home.

“We’re obviously disappointed. We had high hopes for Logan,’’ Head Coach Casey Alexander told the Daytona News Journal. “He was brought here to be part of the solution to get our program headed in the right direction. For him to decide to leave so quickly puts us in a bind, but we understand he’s a long way from home.

Lady Eagles fade into 59-52 loss to Carroll

December 3, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — One of the most difficult things to determine in sports is why a team goes away from what has been successful.

The Columbia City Lady Eagle basketball team used an aggressive full-court offense that helped them build double-digit leads against the visiting Carroll Lady Chargers in Saturday’s first half.

Poor free-throw shooting and lack of a consistent offense against Carroll’s pressure allowed the Lady Chargers to escape with a 59-52 Northeast Hoosier Conference win.

Dwenger converts free throws to beat Col. City

November 28, 2012

FORT WAYNE — Columbia City’s girls basketball team fell to Bishop Dwenger Tuesday night in a contest that was largely decided at the free-throw line.

The Lady Eagles were 8-for-12 from the charity stripe as a team in the 46-41 loss, but the Saints were 25-for-32, including a crucial 8-for-8 second quarter, when Dwenger took the lead for good. The trips to the line marred an otherwise good defensive effort by Columbia City.

The defeat dropped the Eagles to 2-4 on the year.
