Eagle Chais Wilkinson takes his opponent to the ground. His pin in the second period was one of only two wins for Columbia City in its meet against East Noble Wednesday.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia City wrestling alumni â€“ on hand for Alumni Night Wednesday â€“ didnâ€™t quite get the show they were hoping for.
The Eagles lost to East Noble, 60-10.
â€śI was very proud of our guys,â€ť said Eagle Head Coach Blane Culp. â€śFor the most part our guys really went after them. Itâ€™s a tough team. (Head Coach) Keith Koffarâ€™s got them going.â€ť
After five matches, East Noble led 21-4.
Despite the loss, the Eagles only surrendered four pins in 12 matches, something Culp said the coaches have stressed to the team this year.
â€śLast year we gave up 179 pins, which is way too many. When youâ€™re not getting pinned, you have a chance to win,â€ť Culp said.
