Eagles end sectional drought

June 7, 2014

WARSAW — In 1985, the average household income was $22,100, the average price for a new car was $9,005, a gallon of gas was $1.09 and a movie ticket cost $2.75, and Columbia City High School took home its last sectional title — until Friday afternoon.

The Eagles took the course at Rozella Ford with one goal in mind — the sectional championship.

With a team of three sophomores, a junior and a senior, Columbia City outscored all 12 of its opponents, finishing the day in 299 strokes and earning the school’s first sectional title in 29 years.

“The guys had their minds set on taking home the trophy,” Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said. “They’ve been pointing to this date on the calendar for quite awhile.”
