WARSAW — Columbia City is in familiar territory with the Eagles golf team advancing to the golf regional for the fifth time out of the last six years.
The Eagles overcame a four shot deficit between the front and back nines to place third.
“Nick Decker was outstanding, as well as Zach Harker,” said head coach Andrew Thompson. “They came up big for us at the right time.”
Decker placed third overall with a score of 75.
