Junior outfielder Drake Plyler laced a one-out single to left field in the bottom of the 7th inning to lift Central over the visiting Andrew Jackson Volunteers last Friday night, April 13 in a crucial 2AA region contest. The win leaves Central and the Volunteers tied for first place in the region with records of 6-2.
It’s been just 10 years since our “Where Are They Now?” athlete, Matthew Catoe took the mound for the Central Eagles’ baseball team. He played four years for the Eagles, two on junior varsity and two on varsity. In addition to pitching he also played third base.
We hop into our time machine and travel back 44 years to find this week’s “Where Are They Now?” athlete. Johnny Sims played on both the offensive and defensive lines for the Green and Gold Pageland Tigers.
