STC wins big on senior night

Being that Friday's game against Centura marked the last game at Chapman Gymnasium for five St. Cecilia boys basketball players, the setting was already special.

But things became even more emotional at halftime, when before the Bluehawks went to their locker room, they stopped to announce a special donation for the family of Jason and Betty Vertin.

The game itself, though, wasn't worth fretting about as the Class C-2 No. 3 Bluehawks (17-5) were all business in a 61-35 win over the Centurions (5-17).

"It was senior night and I thought they did a good job of getting this team ready, regardless if they're a starter or come in and only play two minutes," Kevin Asher said. "I definitely wanted to get guys like Trevor Ernst and Tommy O'Keeffe some playing time, they've earned it. The five seniors have blended really well and have good chemistry."
