WHITLEY COUNTYâ€” Conventional sports wisdom says that, to be the best, one must beat the best.
That sage advice will be put to the test for Columbia City and Churubuscoâ€™s high school volleyball teams this week.
Both schools, competing in Class 3A and 2A, respectively, have highly-ranked foes standing in their way on the path to a sectional title.
For Columbia City, the foe is a conference rival. Bellmont beat the Lady Eagles in three sets earlier this season.
Additionally, the Squaws are on an eight-year sectional winning streak and are currently tabbed at fifth in the state in Class 3A, according to this weekâ€™s Coachesâ€™ Poll.
The match will be at Heritage, the sectional host, Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
Mississnewa, ranked 13th in Class 3A, is also in Columbia Cityâ€™s sectional and is a possible sectional championship opponent for the Lady Eagles.
