Reitz falls to Columbus East, 42-14


Columbus East, ranked No. 1 in Class 4A, overwhelmed the visiting Reitz Panthers Friday night, 42-14, to win the Class 4A Regional Championship.

The Olympians improved to 13-0 and will travel to No. 2 New Palestine (13-0) for the Semi-State title next weekend.

The fifth-ranked Panthers finished their season at 11-2.

On a side note, this year’s team was so much fun to watch. Their offense was simply explosive, and has earned them a spot in the Top 10 Most Offensive Teams of all time (more info coming soon about that). Hats off to this championship team!
