WATERLOO — It might be too early to call it a hot streak, but going 3-0 in the Northeast Hoosier Conference is nothing less than a good start for the Columbia City Eagles baseball team.

Columbia City was at it again Tuesday night as the Eagles took on the DeKalb Barons in Waterloo.

Columbia City won a closely contested ballgame 7-4 to stay undefeated in the NHC.

The Eagles improved to 7-2 on the year, while the Barons’ record fell to 11-5 and were handed their first NHC loss of the season.

Columbia City catcher Landon Rehrer set the pace for the Eagles’ offense, as the lefty hit three of Columbia City’s 11 hits. Rehrer also scored three runs.

The previous night’s pitcher, Jordan Bickle, had a solid night, going 1-for-3 with a double, two runs, an RBI, a walk and a stolen base.

Ryan Kerschner took the mound for Columbia City.
