Lauren Beussink recorded the girls only first place with win in the 800 meters.

Central golfers fall to Sikeston in opener
SIKESTON, Mo. -- Cape Central dropped its season opener by a narrow margin at the Sikeston Country Club.
Sikeston's Tanner Fritz earned medalist honors with a 36, while Cape Central's Todd Obergoenner led the Tigers with a 37.
NBA commissioner David Stern said hurdles remain for relocating the Hornets from Charlotte. Stern said the Hornets owners and local officials still must prove the city and the region can support an NBA team long-term. More multiyear corporate sponsorship agreements are needed, along with more commitments for club seats, suites and general seating tickets, he said.
NBA owners are expected to vote on the move April 8 or 9.
