CHURUBUSCO â€” Defense can sometimes be contagious. When one player grabs a steal, swats a shot or takes a charge, the rest of the team can pick up on that and feed off of it. Then, when a whole team starts swarming, it can turn into a blowout in a hurry. The Garrett Lady Railroaders learned that lesson for the first time since 2001 against the Churubusco Lady Eagles Tuesday night.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” At the beginning of each new season, there are bugs to be worked out. The Whitko Lady Wildcat basketball team overcame early game offensive struggles to open the new season with a 48-27 home win over the visiting Central Noble Lady Cougars.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” After struggling to get into an offensive rhythm in their opening game, the Lady Eagles were able to fall back on senior leader Aubrey Wright to carry the team to a 1-0 start on the season, beating West Noble, 39-36. Wright scored all but two of Columbia Cityâ€™s 24 second-half points, draining 10-of-13 free throws and shooting 6-of-13 from the field.
Girls basketball season tips off in Whitley County tonight, with all three local teams hosting games. Columbia City hosts West Noble, Whitko hosts Central Noble and Churubusco plays host to Garrett. See Wednesdayâ€™s Edition of The Post & Mail for results from the games.

COLUMBIA CITY â€” Friday nightâ€™s sectional title game was not the ending a large crowd of Columbia City football fans had braved the cold for.
First half turnovers and a Norwell offense that kept the Columbia City defense on the field for big chunks of the first half put the Eagles in a 21-point first-half hole that they were not able to climb out of, and Columbia City fell 35-7 to the Knights in the IHSAA Sectional 20 finals.
The stands are expected to be crowded in Columbia City tonight for the Eaglesâ€™ sectional championship football game against Norwell. Columbia City is seeking its second-ever sectional title. The Eaglesâ€™ last won the sectional in 1993. Pictured above is a full crowd at Columbia Cityâ€™s Homecoming game in September.
