WINONA LAKE — The 2013 season may be over for Columbia City’s boys golf team — but the fun isn’t over yet.

The Eagles had their first showing in 10 years at a regional competition Thursday afternoon.

Though Columbia City placed seventh overall and didn’t make it on to the state finals next week, the squad of four freshman and a sophomore have much more to come for the Eagles.

“They want more,” Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said. “There’s a bright future ahead for those young men.”

Even though the season ended Thursday, Thompson said many of his players will be back on the course today, including one playing in a tournament.

“I’m sure they will all be right back at it this summer,” Thompson said.

As for Warsaw’s regional, Thompson said the opposition was strong.
