BNL the next target for 4-A
No.1 Columbus East as it
continues league rampage
By Justin Sokeland
The football teams in the Hoosier Hills Conference all bear the mark of the beast that is Columbus East.
The Olympians, 8-0 and ranked No.1 in Class 4-A as the defending state champion in that class, have stamped the foreheads of everyone in their path. They inflict pain and punishment. The numbers during their 11-year reign of terror are staggering.
♠-The Olympians have won 55 consecutive league games and 71 and their last 72. They have been challenged only once since the loss at Bedford North Lawrence in 2006. BNL took East to the wire in 2012 before falling 35-31.
♠-East has averaged 50.5 points per game during its 55-game streak and won by an average of 40.9 points per game. The Olympians have scored 60 or more points 18 times in that span.
♠-The Olympians, who have already clinched at least a share of their 11th straight league title, have outscored their six HHC opponents this season 378-40. The average halftime score, before starters are pulled, has been 51-0.
