Nikkila’s senior campaign a hit so far

LINCOLN — St. Cecilia’s Morgan Nikkila has made the most of her senior year thus far.
In the fall season, Nikkila and the Hawkettes’ volleyball team were crowned Class C-2 state champions. On Saturday, the winter season wrapped up when St. Cecilia fell to Crofton in the C-2 basketball finals.

While it wasn’t the result Nikkila was hoping for Saturday, a state championship and a state runner-up finish is nothing to be disappointed about.

“It’s been really great,” she said. “I’ve had an amazing team to look to. We all just get along so well. We’re so close to each other, and we can talk about anything and not get mad at each other. That’s the reason we succeed I think, because of how close we are and our bond. It’s going to be tough leaving that.”
