OSSIAN â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s softball teamâ€™s 6-0 win over Norwell Monday night wasnâ€™t just another win.
It was the Lady Eagleâ€™s seventh win in the Northeast Hoosier Conference, taking the conference title with an undefeated (7-0) NHC record.
â€śIâ€™m very proud of our girls for winning conference,â€ť Head Coach Steve Cox said.
Not only was the feat special for the team, but it was especially important for Columbia City pitcher Cassie Vodde, who didnâ€™t give up any earned runs in any conference games this season.
