CREEARE RANCH: A horse of a different color

April 29, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — In a day when computers, video games and cellphones are the most prized possession for a young person, it’s unusual to find teenagers involved in something that doesn’t require battery power.

However, nestled in the Whitley County countryside is a place where technology is unnecessary, but a desire to create and grow is the key in discovering life’s true passions.

Creeare Ranch, located east of Columbia City, can be described as a sanctuary, a refuge, or a laboratory, but in reality it is simply a horse barn.

Eagle golf falls in close match

April 26, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Though Columbia City’s golf team didn’t end the night victorious Friday, the Eagles came the closest to beating Homestead since 2009.

Columbia City fell 157-162, but it wasn’t from lack of talent on the Spartans’ end.

Columbia City’s Tyler Green finished on par with 36 strokes. Fellow Eagle Spencer Klimek also finished under 40, with a 39. Green rebounded from a 41 the night before, a prediction of Head Coach Andrew Thompson’s that held true.

“It was nice to see Tyler recover from last night and shoot par at home,” Thompson said.

COLUMBIA CITY — They survived.

More than once Columbia City’s Lady Eagles’ softball team had a big inning against Churubusco, only to have the visitors respond. Columbia City emerged victorious though Friday with a 9-8 win.

The winning run came on a wild pitch. Hannah Schnorr of Columbia City was on third waiting and raced across the plate in the bottom of the sixth for the deciding score.

“I told Schnorr be ready, we’ve got to score,” said Columbia City Softball Head Coach Steve Cox.

Col. City: Undefeated no more

HUNTINGTON — It was less than 24 hours after the Eagles’ come-from-behind, 8-7 win in a conference rivalry game against Homestead before Columbia City’s baseball team had to take the field again.

The situation was similar to the night before. Friday’s opponent, Huntington North, is a larger school than Columbia City. So is Homestead, the Eagles’ Thursday opponent. Also, both adversaries sport warrior-type mascots.
