---- — The Centerville fifth grade boys basketball team Red Thunder ended its season with a championship performance at the Clark County Invitational Tournament. The day began with a resounding victory against East Union 56-13. Next, they faced undefeated Clark County and won 32-23.

The boys made crucial free throws in the closing seconds to defeat Indianola 27-25.

In the championship game rematch against Indianola the boys used the age old strategy of “cherry picking,” recording six uncontested layups, and long-range shooting, hitting five three pointers to cruise to a 31-19 victory.
