    The Central men’s basketball team stopped a four game losing skid and evened their Region 9 conference record at 1-1 with a 107 to 86 win over Gillette Saturday afternoon.   The Rustlers came out hot hitting 5 of their first 8 three pointers and hitting 14 for the game. They led by 13 at half and extended that lead to as much as 22 in the second half.   It was a complete team effort said Assistant coach Taylor Lavery who was the head coach for the day following the suspension of Brad Schmit. Five Rustlers were in double figures led by David Simental’s 29.

    Another slow start by the Central women spelled defeat as they drop to 0-2 in league play.   Early foul trouble also hurt as the Rustlers shot only 31% in the first half and trailed Gillette by 16 at the break.    Lindsey Fearing’s team came alive in the second half and outscored the Pronghorns by 6 in the final two quarters. Fearing said, “we need to play the first half like we do the second half and not dig ourselves a hole”.    Paulani Tarawa scored 18 to lead the Rustlers.


    Tarawah scored 18, followed by 15 from Essy Latu and 12 from Rylee Burmester.
