    The Munroe Bobcats have made steady improvement since their season opener Nov. 18.  
    One of the main reasons for that improvement has been the play of senior guard Matthew Salters.  Salters, a three-sport standout, did not play basketball last season but waited until his senior season to play.  Coach Andrew Eads could not be happier.  
    Going back to Jan.y 10, Salters has tallied double figures in scoring and rebounding for seven straight games.

In this final week of the regular season, the team will be practicing in preparation for their participation in the 2A-District 1 tournament at Aucilla Christian.
