Oakland (1-10) 24 vs
Kansas City (7-4) 20
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The true character of a team comes through in the crucial moments of a ball game. Itâ€™s easy to play with poise with a huge lead, but a team learns a lot about itself when it is faced with adversity and the outcome of the game hangs in the balance.
HUNTINGTON â€” The Whitko Lady Wildcats basketballt eam traveled south on Ind. 5 to take on a winless Huntington Lady Vikings team Friday night.

SOUTH WHITLEY â€“ For the second time in as many nights, two Whitley County rivals squared off in a girlsâ€™ basketball game. Friday night, Whitko traveled to Columbia City and fell to the Lady Eagles, 39-36.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” A win is a win is a win. And wins early in the season are usually not works of art. And games between Whitley County rivals tend to be rough and tumble affairs.
The Columbia City Lady Eaglesâ€™ 37-34 home win over the Whitko Lady Wildcats Friday night fit the bill on all counts.
Columbia City Cross Country coaches Bob Fahl and Ashely Cearbaugh hosted the end-of-season awards ceremony last week, celebrating a very successful season with the boys team improving from last year and the girls team running all the way to semi-state and placing one team away from a trip to the state finals.
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.
