Following an afternoon with Coach Burner, it is an evening with Coach Wilkins & his Central Falcons

Image
BROADWAY - Central returned to Broadway Friday night for their second and final game in the 7TH Annual Gobbler Invitational Basketball Tournament. The Falcons were facing Potomac Falls ( Loudon County- Class AA) and showed a noticeable difference in energy in comparison to the opening game against the Gobblers. J.J. Armentrout's lay up just before half allowed Central to take a 23-21 lead in to the locker room but the Falcons struggled in the third quarter. PFHS outscored Central 18-9 in the third quarter and then pushed the lead out to 50-36 with 5:59 remaining in the contest. The time out called belonged to Potomac's Head Coach Jeff Hawes but it was the Falcons that responded to Wilkins telling them they had 6 minutes of basketball left to play. Armentrout found Stuart French open for a 3-pointer to begin the final run and when Morgan Reynard went hard to the basket for a lay-up at 2:23 the lead was trimmed to 52-48. The 12-2 run included six different Falcon

Every time I have attended a Shenandoah District event being held in the gym @ Eastern Mennonite I have listened to this gentleman handle the P.A for the contests with a great deal of professionalism . It turns out that Mr. Jim Snavely handles the same duties at Broadway High School as well as broadcasting on the radio in the area as well. Tip of the cap to Jim for his efforts to help promote High School Sports! Those of you that have been with us since the beginning remember our opening night of Around The Valley back in Woodstock. We wanted to show you Mom & Morgan six months later! Morgan was just days away from being born that night as Mom was taking tickets at the front gate. You have to love the gigantic U.S Flag that hangs in the Broadway gym!

Whitney Wilkins on defense QUICKSBURG - I spent the winter of 2006-2007 covering the Lady Generals Basketball team and was fortunate enough to become familiar with Head Coach Jeff Burner and his extended family. _____________________________________ You have to start by stating that the extended family is rather large due to Burner and his ability to make you feel right at home. The Stonewall Jackson team advanced to the State Tournament behind the talents of 4 year seniors Kallie Hovatter and Britany Kuntz . While Hovatter and Kuntz were talented they were not playing 2 on 5. There were 5 sophomores and a freshman that were a big part of the Lady Generals attack and now those young ladies are taking their turn at providing Senior leadership for Burner. _____________________________________ Jessica "Bu
