AURORA — Coming back from the holiday moratorium is always a nervous time for basketball coaches.
The St. Cecilia girls basketball team just had one chance to practice together as a team before the Aurora holiday tournament. Head coach Jahn Kile admitted that his team was a little rusty, but that's the name of the game in this part of the season.
The preseason Class C-2 No. 7 Hawkettes showed the ability to battle through the adversity, edging out preseason Class-C1 No. 4 Norfolk Catholic 37-36 Friday before thrashing host Aurora 44-16 on Saturday afternoon to capture the Aurora Holiday tournament.
