COLUMBIA CITY â€” Its coach said it wasnâ€™t the most effective performance, but the Columbia City Lady Eagle volleyball team came away Thursday with a Northeast Hoosier Conference win against New Haven.
The Lady Eagles beat the Lady Bulldogs 25-21, 25-16 and 25-21 for the three-game sweep.
According to Columbia City Head Volleyball Coach Trish Hinen, her team had a marathon week, which contributed to Thursdayâ€™s performance.
â€śWe have had seven matches in six days,â€ť she said. â€śSo, it wasnâ€™t pretty. We didnâ€™t play our best, but itâ€™s a conference win.â€ť
With the NHC victory, the Lady Eagles are now 2-1 in the league. Overall, Columbia City has a 16-3 record.
New Haven mixed its offense up in several ways, and this allowed the Lady Bulldogs to keep Columbia City guessing.
