GARRETT â€” Improving to 3-0 on the young season, Columbia City Head Volleyball Coach Trish Hinen is still seeking the right combination.
After defeating Garrett on the road Tuesday evening, Hinen said, â€śOverall we did a good job. But Iâ€™m still trying to find the best team chemistry on the court.â€ť
The Lady Eagles disposed the Railroaders in three games â€” 25-21, 25-17 and 25-20.
On a very hot night, with no air conditioning in the Garrett gymnasium, Columbia City showed no ill-effects to the stifling heat.
In the first game, both teams played even with the Eagles holding a slight advantage at 10-6 before Garrett came back to tie the score at 12 apiece.
The Whitley County crew managed to pull away and widen its margin to as many as six, forcing a Garrett timeout trailing 23-17.
The Railroaders closed the gap to 24-21 before Columbia City shut the door with the final point.
â€śTonight we had a few mental lapses but we were good enough to come back and win,â€ť Hinen said. â€śWe can get by with that now, but not in our future conference games.â€ť
