Columbia has enjoyed a number of successes on the state level of athletic competitions. The boys baseball team won the state title in 1987 under Coach Jim Stuart and again in 2007 under Coach Dustin Nail. In 2010, Columbia's Cheerleading squad swept both statewide competitive cheerleading competitions by winning the IHSA (Illinois High School Association) and ICCA (Illinois Cheerleading Coaches Association) Championships in the small varsity division. The cheerleaders continued their winning ways by repeating that feat in 2011 and 2012, the only small varsity squad in the entire state to win more than once. In 2012, the Eagles cheerleaders also took first place in the Advanced Co-Ed Division of the NCA High School Open National Championship held in Louisville, KY. In 2013, due to increased enrollment, Columbia cheerleading competed at the medium varsity level against schools with enrollments more than double that of Columbia. They again brought home both the IHSA and ICCA titles in their division.
