RICHWOOD, Ohio -- Well, for the second week in a row North Union reigns on top of Division III. The Wildcats are just one of two teams in the entire Central District that remain unbeaten, as North Union has gone unblemished in the Mad River division of the Central Buckeye Conference.
North Union will have a great chance to remain unbeaten this week with two more league games at home against Tecumseh and Indian Lake.
Harvest Prep stands strong at No. 2, as the Warriors blew through MSL-Cardinal competition last week while watching CJ Anthony become the area's all-time leading scorer, as he surpassed former Fairfield Christian standout Brian Carpenter on the area's all-time list.
Anthony can become the first Central District player in history to score 2,200 points as he sits just 75 points away from that mark.
The rest of the division is relatively unchanged, with Centerburg moving up to No. 5, Johnstown moving up to No. 6 and Bishop Ready falling out of the top five for the first time all season.
Elgin remains hot and rises up to No. 8 while Africentric rejoins the top 10 after another tough week. While the Nubians are 6-10, they've faced a gauntlet of a schedule and have more talent than the vast majority of the division, as we could see them making a run in the tournament.
