COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls basketball team suffered its fourth consecutive loss to Concordia.
The Lady Eaglesâ€™ two-point lead at the end of the first quarter turned into a 17-point loss on their home court Wednesday night.
â€śThat first quarter was the best first quarter weâ€™ve played,â€ť 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 â€” and never looked back.
â€śTheyâ€™re a quality ball club,â€ť Shearer said. â€śTeams donâ€™t get votes for the AP poll if theyâ€™re not good.â€ť
Concordiaâ€™s Olivia Hahn hit three 3-pointers in the second quarter, helping the Lady Cadets to a 36-22 lead at halftime.
