Center roundball: And then there were two
Last week there was a team in each of three Anna Maria Island Community Center Basketball League age divisions chasing the elusive perfect season and, as often is the case, perfection is almost impossible at any level of athletic competition.

Beach Bistro maintained its undefeated status in the 8-10 division, although Gettel Toyota is right on its heels with a 3-1 record. Island Real Estate with one victory and Walter & Associates follow in the standings.
