COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ Columbia City‚Äôs girls basketball team suffered its fourth consecutive loss to Concordia.
The Lady Eagles‚Äô two-point lead at the end of the first quarter turned into a 17-point loss on their home court Wednesday night.
‚ÄúThat first quarter was the best first quarter we‚Äôve played,‚ÄĚ Columbia City Head Coach Amy Shearer said.
The Lady Cadets, who are ranked fourth in Class 3A by the Associated Press, outscored Columbia City 23-7 in the second quarter to take the lead ‚ÄĒ and never looked back.
‚ÄúThey‚Äôre a quality ball club,‚ÄĚ Shearer said. ‚ÄúTeams don‚Äôt get votes for the AP poll if they‚Äôre not good.‚ÄĚ
Concordia‚Äôs Olivia Hahn hit three 3-pointers in the second quarter, helping the Lady Cadets to a 36-22 lead at halftime.
