AKRON — This winning thing is beginning to repeat itself for Whitko boys’ cross country.
A season after claiming a Three Rivers Conference title, the Wildcats were back Thursday to defend it.
With all five runners in the top 10, Whitko had no trouble doing so with second-place Rochester not within reach 29-68.
COLUMBIA CITY — The Columbia City Lady Eagle soccer team honored its eight senior members in grand style Thursday night, sending them off with a 3-1 senior night win over Fort Wayne South Side that fittingly was capped off by a goal from one of the “Elite Eight.”
FORT WAYNE — The postseason left a tall order for Columbia City boys’ soccer to take on Thursday night.
With regular season losses to two of the three teams joining them in the Homestead sectional, the Eagles faced one of those teams in Huntington North.
A relentless series of attacks by both teams took Columbia City into the second half with a one-goal deficit.
