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.
The No. 7 Eagles are 7-1 and received 153 votes in the poll in Class 2A. Leading the class is Indianapolis Park Tudor with 340 votes.
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.
The Eagles picked up wins over Norwell, 60-24, and Blufton, 48-21. Churubusco fell to 10th-ranked Delta, 57-18, and Fort Wayne Snider, 48-25. The Eagles also dropped a close 39-36 match to Bishop Dwenger.
CHURUBUSCO â€” The Churubusco Eagles swept both halves of a boy-girl basketball doubleheader to open Northeast Corner Conference Tournament play Tuesday, with the girls downing Prairie Heights 65-33 and the boys eliminating the Panthers 55-31.
Both Churubusco squads advance to the second round where they will face Westview teams at the Warriorsâ€™ gym Wednesday night.
After a relatively close first quarter, the Lady Eagles pulled away steadily over the final three periods to put the game away.

SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Home court is supposed to be an advantage. It's where team's practice, where the supportive home fans are and home is where the shots are supposed to fall a little bit better.
Home court was not an advantage for the Whitko Wildcats Saturday afternoon. The â€™Cats started out the game against Rochester with some great shots but nothing would fall. The cold start was too much for Whitko to overcome, as the team fell to the Zebras, 62-48.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Much like Friday nightâ€™s boys game, Columbia Cityâ€™s girls basketball contest with Bellmont was over before it really got started. The Lady Eagles took a 26-4 lead in the first quarter, en route to a 65-18 victory in Saturdayâ€™s Northeast Hoosier Conference game.
Lady Eagle Chelsea Pettigrew scored nine points and Macie Hinen tallied eight points in the first seven minutes. Bellmont played a more competitive, 10-10, second quarter, but struggled offensively for the rest of the game.
