Col. City beats ’Busco in rivalry match

September 4, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — In volleyball, scoring first helps, but the team that gets the final point is the winner.

Columbia City’s volleyball team put that theory to the test Tuesday in its county-rivalry win over Churubusco. ’Busco got the first point in all three sets, but it was Columbia City who walked off with the 3-0 victory.

Columbia City won by nearly-symmetrical scores of 25-19, 25-19 and 25-18.

However, the three sets were not symmetrical. Visiting Columbia City battled back from a 12-6 hole to win the first one.

In the second set, the visitors pulled away after the score was tied at nine. For the third set, Columbia City built a commanding 15-3 lead, but the hosts battled back to nearly tie it.

Columbia City Head Volleyball Coach Trish Hinen said a lack of practice contributed to the slow starts for her team.
