Col. City girls drop NHC meet
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls track team fell to both Bellmont and Carroll in a three-way meet Tuesday night.
Carroll took first in the Northeast Hoosier Conference clash with 73 and two-thirds points, followed by Bellmont with 56 and one-third points. Columbia City finished the night with 32 points.
â€śCarroll and Bellmont are very good,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said. â€śWe opted to rest some girls and not have them run multiple events.â€ť
Columbia Cityâ€™s lone first-place finish came from high jumper Carlee Hearld. Hearld cleared 5 feet, 4 inches. â€śThat was very big for her and our team,â€ť Fahl said.
The 400-meter relay team of Kailyn Miller, Hannah Wappes, Regan Decker and Megan Deutsch finished with a time of 52.1, the fastest time Columbia City has posted in four years, to place second to Carroll.
