Weekend Chit-chat with Aurora Christian girls basketball coach Jerry Tokars
The Aurora Christian girls basketball team made program history Thursday night, winning its first regional championship with a comeback win against Seneca. The Eagles move on to Monday’s 2A Somonauk Sectional semifinal against Peru St. Bede. In his third year with the program, Eagles coach Jerry Tokars is proud of the strides made by his team, which also won its first Suburban Christian Conference Gold title and has set a single-season wins record (19 and counting). Before Friday afternoon’s practice, Tokars chatted with Kane County Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab about the exciting times for Aurora Christian. The following is an edited transcript:
Not [teaching] in the building, do you have any sense of what kind of feedback/response there’s been about the win?
If I judge by emails and stuff coming, I haven’t been [to school] yet, but I know with Facebook and emails to my own personal email, it looks like there’s quite a bit of excitement. … It took quite awhile for us to leave Wilmington High School last night. A lot of people were celebrating pretty good, and rightly so.
