The Cards’ varsity baseball team will officially have a new yearly tradition after they have their second annual car wash fundraiser on Sunday, Jan. 29 at the Country Fresh Cleaners at 10 am. Last year marked their first iteration of the event which helped them afford important equipment and team gear. However, there is a deeper meaning behind the Cards’ car wash as they pay their respects to a dearly departed, longtime fan of the team. In remembrance of Kristie Geisler, the team plans to continue their new tradition with the same spirit of joy and love for the team that Geisler displayed in life.

COLUMBUS — The Columbus Chamber of Commerce received a proclamation from Governor Greg Abbott in recognition of Columbus’ upcoming Bicentennial Celebration, which marks 200 years of the city’s existence. The proclamation reads in part: “A town as old as Texas herself, Columbus has had a frontrow seat to an entire history. Two hundred years ago, settlers took up the ‘Gone to Texas’ banner and build a community that would stand the test of time … From General Houston’s base camp in the Revolution to the legendary cattle drives of a bygone saga, the town has witness many iconic moments and has epitomized both the noble pioneering spirit and the fierce independence that have come to define our people…The same values and valor that enabled Columbus to thrive in the age of westward expansion have indeed survived well into the new millennium … As you reflect upon your proud past and look toward and even brighter tomorrow, I hope that you will rededicate yourselves to the values and traditions that built your city ...”

Sports

The Columbus varsity boys’ soccer team constantly created opportunities for themselves during Tuesday night’s Jan. 17 game against Smithville. By putting pressure on the box offensively, Columbus weakened the defense and even earned a penalty kick chance from their efforts. The Cards were able to convert on many of their opportunities as they had a huge-scoring game, taking a big 4-2 victory over the Tigers.

The Columbus Lady Cards have been having a strong year at this point of the season’s latter stages. At 21-4, Columbus is sitting comfortably at the top of the district standings and are hoping to potentially win out to complete the season. During Friday night’s trip to Rice Consolidated, the Lady Cards visited a team with much different expectations. The Lady Raiders have been focused on improving their fundamentals and skills, but their efforts have not translated to wins this season. They are 2-20 overall on the season and have yet to pick up their first district win. The matchup between the Lady Cards and the Lady Raiders was reflective of the position both teams find themselves in at this point as district-leading Columbus claimed a 66-24 victory over the last place Lady Raiders.
