Lady Eagles suffer close losses
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The 7-4 record may not show it, but Columbia Cityâ€™s girls basketball team could easily be undefeated this season.
Three of the Lady Eaglesâ€™ losses have been by five points or less, and the fourth loss was in overtime by seven points.

After two years of the girlsâ€™ squad finishing with back-to-back 8-15 records, this year has been nearly a 180-turn-around for Head Coach Amy Shearer and the Lady Eagles.
At this time last season, the Lady Eagles were 2-9.
