Here is a look at the GAC Central Conference, which is paced by a strong Fort Zumwalt South team that advanced to the Class 5 state quarterfinals a year ago. Wentzville Liberty is retooling a little bit after winning back to back Class 4 district championships, but they will still be very competitive with 2020 guard Jayce Catchings returning.
