April 29, 2013

FORT WAYNE — Churubusco’s softball team had a familiar weekend performance Saturday.

For the second time in two days, the Lady Eagles lost a 9-8 ball game to a much larger school. Friday, it was against Columbia City. Saturday, it was on the road at Fort Wayne Northrop, with ‘Busco falling in 12 innings.

It wasn’t for a lack of hitting on ’Busco’s part. The Lady Eagles cracked 13 hits overall in the contest, with Amber Aspy leading the way with three. Chandler Blake had two hits and a double and also scored twice. Gabby Jones and Lacey Pulley both had two hits also.

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.

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

April 26, 2013

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.
