High school football is in the books for 2015.
For Columbus North, the 6-4 Bulldogs had their first winning season in four years. They got knocked out of the state football playoffs with a loss to eventual Class 6A state champion Center Grove, considered one of the top 10 teams in the country. Center Grove finished the year with a 14-0 record.
Columbus East extended its run as Hoosier Hills Conference champions to 12 straight years with a 63-game conference winning streak. After knocking off Whiteland, the No. 6-ranked team in Class 5A, the No. 2 Olympians saw their season come to an end with a 24-14 loss to then-No. 1 New Palestine. The Olympians ended their season for the third straight year against New Palestine, the past two in losing efforts after East’s 2013 state championship team.
