Prep roundup: Chargers handle Reapers at Somonauk tourney

SOMONAUK – Stingy zone defense boosted the unbeaten Aurora Central Catholic girls basketball team past Plano, 35-28, in Somonauk Tournament play Wednesday night.

Taylor Harazin, a 6-foot-3 freshman, led the effort against the highly touted Reapers post threat Clarissa Martinez, as ACC limited Martinez to six points on just four shots.

“We were able to kind of sandwich her in and have the guards cover the perimeter,” Chargers coach Mark Fitzgerald said. “It really held her in check, because she’s a quality ballplayer. Then we had enough scoring in us to go on top.”

Gabi Alfaro (10 points) and Alex Horton (nine) paced the 3-0 Chargers, who held Plano to just three points in the fourth quarter.

“Still a lot left to do and learn,” Fitzgerald said, “but it went well.”

Elsewhere in Somonauk tournament action, Wheaton Academy won its second straight game with a 68-47 victory against Serena.

Molly Thorson and Abi
Olson had 14 points apiece for the Warriors, while Marissa Gagliano added 11 points. Wheaton Academy led, 24-8, after the opening quarter.
