Bill Inselmann’s young Patrick Henry squad will get its toughest test to date when the 2-0 Patriots visit 1-1 Bryan on Friday.

Central trying to stay unbeaten with trip to St. Francis

Toledo rivas St. Francis and Central Catholic will renew acquaintances on Friday when the Irish visit the Knights.

What are we really?”
