FREMONT— The Lady Jets basketball team opened their season with a loss at Fremont on the road Friday night, 39-22.
Central never crossed double digits in a quarter against the Eagles struggling to find offense in their first game this season.
Fremont held an 8-5 lead after one quarter, then extended it to 20-14 at the half. The game was put out of reach after the third quarter, however, as the Jets were outscored 11-4, then 8-4 in the final period.

With the Class 1A regional title on the line, the South Adams Starfires will take to the gridiron tonight against defending state champion Tri-Central. The game will be played on the Starfires’ home field.
