Columbia City edged No. 8 East Noble, 56-55, in a wild Northeast Hoosier Conference game that saw more than 1,200 yards of offense last Friday in Kendallville. Columbia City pulled to within 55-54 on quarterback Logan Rehrer’s 15-yard touchdown pass to Connor Slavich in the corner of the endzone with 10 seconds remaining. Then, following a timeout, Rehrer hit Jared Murphy near the sideline for the two-point conversion that helped put Columbia City into a four-way tie for the conference lead.

Leonard Drake, 56, who was hired as Evansville Central High School's athletics director in late June, passed away on September 29. Drake spent 33 years in college athletics, most recently as a women's basketball assistant at Eastern Michigan University. He previously was head coach of the men's team at Central Michigan, and was an assistant at Ball State. Drake is survived by his wife, Rhonda, a son, Jared, and a daughter, Enjoli.

Fort Wayne Canterbury captured its first sectional championship in boys tennis last Friday with a 5-0 victory over home-standing Homestead. The victory also ended Homestead’s 31-year stranglehold on the sectional title. It was the longest active streak in the sport and second longest in a boys sport behind Jeffersonville which has won 38 consecutive sectional titles in boys track and field.

Northview senior quarterback Trent Lancaster tied a state record (joining several other people) with eight touchdown passes in a 61-6 win over South Vermillion on Friday night. He now has 22 TD passes on the season.

In his team’s 43-28 victory over Martinsville last Friday, Roncalli junior Drew Oehrle (pronounced early) kicked five field goals tying the state record for most in a game set in 1998 by Mike Megyesi of Merrillville. Among Oehrle’s kicks were a 52 yarder and another from 51 yards. Oehrle actually made a sixth field goal in the game but Roncalli opted to take the points off the board after a defensive penalty was called on the play.
