LAGRANGE â€” Churubuscoâ€™s boys basketball team did something Saturday night that no other basketball team in the history of the school has done â€” won a conference tourney championship.
The Eagles defeated the Fairfield Falcons in the championship game, 63-59. From the beginning of the game, it was apparent that it would be a fast-paced battle.
WHITLEY COUNTY â€” Teams from all three Whitley County high schools will have full schedules this weekend.
Columbia City boys basketball squares off against conference-leading Homestead and its Division I recruit Caleb Swanigan at the Spartansâ€™ gym tonight.
The Lady Eagles will play host to the Lady Spartans on Saturday night at 6 p.m. The Columbia City wrestlers will travel to the Goshen Invitational on Saturday with wrestling beginning at 9 a.m.
DECATUR â€” Indian Springs Middle Schoolâ€™s boys basketball teams traveled to Bellmont Tuesday night, taking one win and one loss.
The 7th grade Eagles boys basketball team returned to action after the holiday break with a convincing 54-12 win in Decatur.
SOUTH WHITLEY Ââ€” Norwell sank nine three-pointers to send the Lady Wildcats to a 61-44 loss Thursday night at Whitko.
Three of those 3-pointers came in the opening minutes of the game and Norwell never cooled off.
As hot as Norwell was from the field, Whitko was just as cold. The Lady â€™Cats hit three of their eight shots in the opening period and never recovered from the first-quarter deficit.
WATERLOO â€” The Columbia City Eagle wrestling squad had not beaten the DeKalb Barons in dual meet action since 2009. That came to an end on Wednesday night as the Eagles strung together six pinfall wins on their way to a 45-24 Northeast Hoosier Conference win on the Baronsâ€™ mat.
In the opening bout at 126 pounds, Columbia Cityâ€™s Matt Wright was in control, leading 6-2 when he got reversed and pinned as the Barons took a 6-0 lead. The Eagles knotted the score, 6-6, as Kyle Egolf scored a 32-second first-period pinfall win over Baron senior Susie Fozo at 132 pounds.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Indian Springs Middle Schoolâ€™s girls basketball teams took dominating wins over conference foe Bellmont this week, winning by big numbers in both games.
The Indian Springs 7th grade Lady Eagles remained unbeaten on the season with a 63-0 win over visiting Bellmont.
TOPEKA â€” Coaching basketball in the state of Indiana is hard on its own. Taking your team into the Westview â€śWarrior Dome,â€ť a place that holds over 3,300 rowdy and proud basketball fans, when your gym only holds 1,200, to try to win your 100th career game, is even harder.
Churubusco Head Coach Mike McBride did just that, and the Eagles advanced to the conference tourney semifinals with a 49-36 win over Westview Wednesday.
CHURUBUSCO â€” Churubuscoâ€™s boys basketball team made the Associated Pressâ€™ Top 10 poll this week.

MONROE â€” With the dual meet portion of the season rapidly coming to a close, the Churubusco Eagle wrestlers traveled to Monroe for the Adams Central Super Duals. The Eagles went 2-3 on day against five quality teams.
