Prep Hoops Missouri continues its preseason conference previews with a look at the newly-formed Central Missouri Activities Association, which features several excellent programs from the Mid-Missouri. Rock Bridge advanced to the Class 4 state quarterfinals last season while Helias was a Class 4 Final Four qualifier. Battle has won district championships in three of the past four years. It should make for a very competitive and interesting first year of competition.
