Eagles knock off undefeated Knights
KENDALLVILLE â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s golf team handed Northeast Hoosier Conference foe East Noble its first loss Tuesday night.
â€śThe conference is loaded and we proved that weâ€™re in the running and can play with the big boys,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said. â€śItâ€™s great to knock off an undefeated team.â€ť
The Eagles, now 2-3 in the NHC, shot a 158 to edge the Knights by four strokes, 158-162.
Columbia Cityâ€™s score is a new low for the year.
â€śThe way East Noble has been playing, it was great to get the win,â€ť Thompson said. â€śWe were able to get it done last night. It was a huge win on the road and a great effort by the guys. Thatâ€™s what we need to have if we want to beat these tough teams in the NHC.â€ť
Freshman Tyler Green matched East Nobleâ€™s Michael Sharpâ€™s score of 37 to pace the Eagles.
