‘Busco falls in extra innings to Northrop

April 29, 2013

FORT WAYNE — Churubusco’s softball team had a familiar weekend performance Saturday.

For the second time in two days, the Lady Eagles lost a 9-8 ball game to a much larger school. Friday, it was against Columbia City. Saturday, it was on the road at Fort Wayne Northrop, with ‘Busco falling in 12 innings.

It wasn’t for a lack of hitting on ’Busco’s part. The Lady Eagles cracked 13 hits overall in the contest, with Amber Aspy leading the way with three. Chandler Blake had two hits and a double and also scored twice. Gabby Jones and Lacey Pulley both had two hits also.

Eagle golf falls in close match

April 27, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Though Columbia City’s golf team didn’t end the night victorious Friday, the Eagles came the closest to beating Homestead since 2009.

Columbia City fell 157-162, but it wasn’t from lack of talent on the Spartans’ end.

Columbia City’s Tyler Green finished on par with 36 strokes. Fellow Eagle Spencer Klimek also finished under 40, with a 39. Green rebounded from a 41 the night before, a prediction of Head Coach Andrew Thompson’s that held true.

“It was nice to see Tyler recover from last night and shoot par at home,” Thompson said.

COLUMBIA CITY — They survived.

More than once Columbia City’s Lady Eagles’ softball team had a big inning against Churubusco, only to have the visitors respond. Columbia City emerged victorious though Friday with a 9-8 win.

The winning run came on a wild pitch. Hannah Schnorr of Columbia City was on third waiting and raced across the plate in the bottom of the sixth for the deciding score.

“I told Schnorr be ready, we’ve got to score,” said Columbia City Softball Head Coach Steve Cox.

Col. City: Undefeated no more

April 26, 2013

HUNTINGTON — It was less than 24 hours after the Eagles’ come-from-behind, 8-7 win in a conference rivalry game against Homestead before Columbia City’s baseball team had to take the field again.

The situation was similar to the night before. Friday’s opponent, Huntington North, is a larger school than Columbia City. So is Homestead, the Eagles’ Thursday opponent. Also, both adversaries sport warrior-type mascots.

Freshman Klimek hits hole-in-one

April 26, 2013

HUNTINGTON — Columbia City’s golf team traveled to LaFontaine Golf Course Thursday to face the Huntington North Vikings.

Despite a hole-in-one by Eagle freshman Spencer Klimek, Columbia City fell to the Vikings, 161-169.

Klimek led the Eagles with a 39, scoring his hole one-in-one on hole No. 17 from 142 yards out.

“Spencer led our team tonight,” Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said. “He came out and had the great fortune to have the hole-in-one and that is a tremendous accomplishment. It’s a tremendous feeling, and that is icing on the cake for him.”

April 26, 2013

“We finally had a decent day where we could play some baseball,” said Eagle Head Coach Zac Bireley, “So that’s a plus.”

April 26, 2013

LIGONIER — A first inning home run from Jordan Howell gave Churubusco’s baseball team a lead it would not relinquish in a win against West Noble Thursday in the NECC tournament.

‘Busco beat the Chargers 7-3, although it took nine innings to do it.

Howell’s homer was part of a three-run first that gave the Eagles a 3-0 lead. West Noble chipped away, bringing about a tie score that pushed the game into bonus baseball. Then, Churubusco added four runs to break the tie in the top of the ninth, and West Noble was unable to respond.
