Gulf at Nature Coast, girls basketball, 7:30 p.m.
Nature Coast can finish district play undefeated for the second straight season with a win over the Bucs tonight and victories later in the week against Pasco and Sunlake. The Sharks have won four straight, while Gulf has won two of three.
Waddy out vs. Gulf
Nature Coast senior Cherikhan Waddy will not play in tonight's game against Gulf. The Sharks' leading scorer 12.3 ppg scored seven points before she injured her right leg in the first quarter of a 50-15 win over Springstead on Friday.
She did not practice Monday and used crutches to get around school. Nature Coast coach Travis Lamle said she will have an X-ray to determine the extent of the damage.
River Ridge, Central players suspended
Central boys soccer player Darrin Foreman will miss two games for a red card he received during the Bears' 6-3 win over River Ridge on Wednesday night, the Florida High School Athletic Association announced Monday. Foreman was issued the red card for a rough slide tackle in the second half.
River Ridge players Seth Wade and Taylor Watson, issued red cards during the same match, also will miss two games.
Per FHSAA rules, players who are issued red cards can be suspended up to two weeks, which would have caused both players to miss the Bears' rematch against River Ridge in the Class 5A, District 7 semifinals next week (River Ridge is the No. 3 seed, Central is the No. 2 seed).
Browdy records 1,000th point
Central senior Ronisha Browdy, a three-year starter for the Bears, scored her 1,000th point during her team's appearance at the Ida S. Baker Christmas tournament in Cape Coral. Browdy, who plans to attend Florida State next year for academics, is averaging 14.3 points per game for the 7-10 Bears. Browdy has hit 45 3-pointers and is shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc.
