COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s girls track team is en route to another successful track season this year.
The Lady Eagles had a repeat title in its first meet, topping both Churubusco and Whitko in the county competition by more than 30 points each.
Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said he feels confident in this seasonâ€™s team of 31 tracksters.
â€śWeâ€™re in pretty good shape,â€ť Fahl said.
The Lady Eagles return nearly all of their athletes from last yearâ€™s sectional-title winning team, and adds a few key newcomers that may play a large role on this seasonâ€™s team.
â€śThereâ€™s quite a few kids who have never competed in high school track, nine of our 31,â€ť Fahl said. While some coaches may be wary of the teamâ€™s inexperience, Fahl doesnâ€™t feel that way.
â€śThatâ€™s a good thing,â€ť Fahl said. â€śWe are looking forward to a few of our incoming freshmen.â€ť
Reagan Decker is one of those frosh, who participates in the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes, along with the 400-meter relay and long jump.
Fahl said Decker has been looking impressive in practice.
