It was business as usual for Isaac Slatton and his Centertown squads Monday. Speculation over Slatton’s status as Centertown coach was squashed when he led both the Lady Warriors and Warriors to blowout victories at Boyd.
The Lady Warriors, led by Madison Johnson’s 10 points, blew by the Lady Broncos 41-17 while Ashton Griffith’s 12 points helped Centertown’s boys beat Boyd 51-19.
Centertown officials were silent last week when one parent tried to confront Slatton during a timeout at Irving College. Some went to social media to criticize Slatton’s demeanor, leading to some speculation Slatton would be relieved of his duties.
He wasn't, and none of it seemed to matter Monday when Centertown was cruising to victories.
Slatton got contributions from his entire Lady Warrior roster to improve to 5-2. Emma Miller and Liberty Simmons scored six points each, while Krista Chisam added five. Rounding out the scoring was Alyssa Mosley with four and Addison Johnson, Emmaly Southworth, Sammie Johnson, Shelby Ford and Ella Gibbs with two points each.
Emma Young continued her streak of scoring every Lady Bronco point, finishing with 17 Monday while making five 3-pointers.
In the boys game, Centertown started on a 22-0 run to breeze by the Broncos and improve to 4-3.
The Warriors spread out their scoring, getting eight points apiece from Ethan Roach and Logan Cantrell, along with six points each from Baler Melton and Riley Morton. Griffin Jones splashed a 3-pointer for his lone points, while Aiden Miller, Skyler Scott, Chase Grosch and Stephen Burks scored two points apiece.
Boyd (0-7) got 15 points from Thomas Burks and two points each from Jordan Perry and Connor Andrews.
