Omaha Central is the first school from the state of Nebraska to be invited to play in a national tournament. They’ll be playing in the City of Palms Classic in Ft. Myers, Florida, beginning Tuesday afternoon.
Winners of the last three Class A state titles and six of the last seven, plus returning four starters that went undefeated last year, were enough reasons for tournament organizers to offer an invite. Central’s first game is today at 3:45 CT. They face a school from suburban Atlanta, Eagle’s Landing from McDonough, GA.
Central has won 40 straight games. They need to win today to tie Grand Islands’ Class A record of 41 set in 1948-49
