Central’s Skaggs Sisters to the Sweet 16

The Skaggs sisters of Central have advanced into the sweet 16 of the Division Two NCAA tournament Monday. Megan, a sophomore, and Sydney, a junior, play for the Central Missouri Jennies. The Jennies beat Minnesota State-Morehead 66-49 in the first round on Friday, then topped Fort Hays State 66-59 on Saturday. Megan scored 17 points with 6 rebounds in the first round and then had 8 and 6 in the second round. Sydney contributed 4 points and 2 rebounds in the round of 32. Megan says they thought they’d be good this year, but they may have even surprised themselves with all the success…

Central improves to 26-3 and will play top seeded Augustana Monday night at 7.

The Jennies are currently ranked 10th in the country and have been as high as number two. Both Megan and Sydney were starters for the Central Rebels 2015 state championship team.
