COLUMBIA CITY â Columbia City was on fire from the tip-off in Whitley Countyâs boys basketball season opener against Whitko Wednesday.
The Eagles shot 90 percent in 3-pointers in the opening half en route to a lopsided 69-26 win over their county rivals. Mason Coverstone sparked Columbia City, hitting the first of nine Eagle 3-pointers in the first half.
COLUMBIA CITY â A very young Columbia City Eagle wrestling squad kicked off its 2012-13 season Tuesday night with one of only three home meets.
The Eagles hosted perennial Northeast Hoosier Conference powerhouse Bel-lmont.
Columbia City fell behind early, but ran off a string of three straight wins.
Despite the run, the Eagles still fell to the Braves by a 51-19 score.
Columbia City fielded a lineup that included five freshmen who saw their first high school varsity experience.
COLUMBIA CITY â After nearly a complete turn-around of last weekâs Columbia City girls basketball game â when the Lady Eagles had 38 turnovers and lost by more than 20 points to Snider â Columbia City came within two seconds of a win over Marion Saturday.
Despite Macie Hinenâs comeback â scoring twice in the final minute to take a three-point lead â Marion scored twice in the final four seconds to win, 43-40.
Emily Whiteleather led Columbia City in scoring and rebounds with a double-double, 10 points and 15 rebounds.
CHURUBUSCO â While Churubuscoâs football season seemingly ended the same as it did last year â a lopsided loss at Bishop Luers.
But Fridayâs 21-0 score is hardly comparable to last seasonâs 34-7 loss to the Knights.
The Eagles held the score to a one-possession game for the first 39 minutes of play, had several threatening offensive drives and a defense that forced Luers to multiple 4th-and-longs. The Knights were scoreless for two quarters, only reaching the end zone in the final seven minutes.
Columbia Cityâs golf team held its awards banquet Sunday. Winners include, from left: Jackie Leeuw, Lowest Average; Allison Yoder, Coaches Award; Jessica Klemm, Most Improved; Macenzie Lane, Mental Attitude Award and (not pictured) Sydney Ford, Most Valuable Player.
TERRE HAUTE â After a long and trying season for Columbia City stand-out runner Samantha Roush, the harrier made Indianaâs All-State team, placing 24th at Saturdayâs state finals in Terre Haute.
A junior this year, this season was Roushâs third year at the state meet.
Last year, Roush came in seventh and she placed 16th as a freshman.
While she may not have placed as well as before, Roush spent much of the 2012 season sidelined due to an injury.
âIt was the season that almost wasnât,â Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said. âTwice.â
