No. 3 Central High boys Record: (7-4), coming off a 71-60 loss at Elmore City-Pernell. Stength: Speeding up the game — The Bronchos use their speed to get out on the fastbreak and beat slower teams up the court. Seniors John Repp and Kevin Harris are both capable of 20-plus points a night when they’re contorting their bodies in between defenders to finish layups. Weakness: Slowing it down — Central High can grab the lead early, but holding onto it late is another thing. The Bronchos tried to slow the tempo against Velma-Alma in the Black Diamond final and it back-fired on them. Being able to run the clock and control the game has been a recent emphasis from coach John Nease. Player to Watch: sophomore Ian Hickman — Repp and Harris can score, but the starting point guard’s return from his second ankle injury helps the team manage the game even better. First-round matchup: vs. No. 6 Ryan on Tuesday at 6:20 p.m.


Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
