|Youth hoops galore|
Hundreds of basketball players and fans gathered in Aurora Sunday for phase one of a two-part youth basketball tournament. It was the girls turn Sunday, as approximately 40 teams competed at the PAC, Bremer Center and Aurora Public Schools gymnasiums. Pictured here, volunteer coach Damon McDonald gives tips to his Aurora 6th grade team. Team winners at the various grade levels include: 4th grade, NE Lasers of Lincoln; 5th grade, HSM Hawks of Hastings; 6th grade, NE Force of Lincoln; 7th grade, Lincoln Twisters; 8th grade, Elkhorn.
The action will pick up again Sunday, when the same venues will host 40 boys teams.
