Central's annual Saber Dash & Bash set for Saturday, Aug. 24

By Ross Eberhart
Sports editor

With class back in session for most of the area schools, you can pretty much put summer in the books and begin looking ahead to fall.

The Central Sabers will celebrate the unofficial start of their fall sports season with the 2013 Saber Dash and Bash on Saturday, August 24.

The bustling day will open with the fifth running of the Saber Dash - a 5K run/walk that will start and finish at the high school.

Registration and packet pick-up for the race will be 7-7:45 a.m. in the high school atrium, while the start is scheduled for 8 a.m.

Awards will be given to the top-three finishers of men and women age division with other awards being given to the overall winners.

After the race, fans will have a chance to meet this year's Sabers as all fall sports programs will be introduced at approximately 9:30 a.m.

The Central football team will be taking part in a scrimmage with Davenport West the night before, so the Saber Bowl, which kicks off at 10 a.m., will have a different format.

The freshman members of the football team will scrimmage, while the sophomore and varsity teams work on special teams.

The Saber varsity volleyball team, meanwhile, will host their own scrimmage also starting at 10.
