KENDALLVILLE â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls track team won the East Noble Relays for the sixth year in a row on Saturday.
The Lady Eagles won the invitational by a close 15 points.
â€śIt was a close meet the entire day,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said. â€śIt came down the the last race. It was a great display of effort by so many young ladies.â€ť
