After falling to East Gaston for the second time this season, R-S Central Men found themselves as the co-champs of the Southwestern 2A Conference with South Point. It's the first league title in 17 years when they shared it with East Rutherford in 2001. No question, it's the best Central team since that 2001 season.
"It's been a lot of hard work by a group of volunteers to make this happen and to get an 18 game schedule in our first year, as well as getting into a state association, has been challenging, yet rewarding." said Ryan Elkins, volunteer coach, on the inaugural basketball season. "These aren't top notch basketball players or athletes but they are great kids learning to play the game of basketball while also learning life lessons like teamwork, focus, dedication and perseverance. We are planning on having a girl's softball team this year and next year we plan to add girl's volleyball, boy's soccer, cross country and golf. It's an exciting time at TMA!"
