(Hartford City)- Chris Benedict led Columbia City to the state title game in '04 and now the coach has the Eagles one win away from doing it again. Columbia City beat Harding 55-47 in the Blackford Regional Final. Derek Hinen had 23 to lead the way for the Eagles. Columbia City will play Culver in the Semistate next Saturday at either Lafayette Jeff or Huntington North. That will be announced Sunday.

This will probably be the final game for Harding with the school being closed at the end of the year.
