COLUMBIA CITY â One tournament made all the difference in Columbia Cityâs girls basketballâs season.
The Lady Eagles had been struggling with a nine-game losing streak, a difficult 2-12 record and several competitive losses in the first part of their season.
Columbia City competed in the two-day, Northridge Holiday tournament in late December â and thatâs when the tables turned.
Though the Lady Eagles fell in the first three games, the fourth game was a totally different performance.
Columbia City topped Concord by a 58-38 score. Head coach Amy Shearer said the win was more than a âwâ on the record book.
âThat was a good team-building win,â Shearer said. âWe all started focusing on the team and we began playing for each other.â
Shearer said one of the improvements came from junior Emily Whiteleather, who made the Northeast Hoosier Conferenceâs 1st-Team All-Conference.
