Healing through athletics

There are some life events that unfold and make sports look so miniscule in the grand scheme of things. But, in that same moment, sports can be used as a healing tool that brings everyone together.
The Aurora community suffered a huge loss in the wee hours of Friday night into Saturday morning. Aurora junior Nick Pachta was killed in an automobile accident.
The boys and girls basketball teams were on their way back after competing in Waverly when news spread that their friend was gone.
Not even 24 hours later, they were slated to compete again on the road at rival Northwest. I can’t imagine basketball was what they wanted to see or hear about at the moment.
Likewise, the wrestling team was preparing to take to the mats at home for the conference meet not even 12 hours later.
