SUSSEX (WITI) -- The Sussex-Hamilton basketball team has done a lot of growing up on the court over the years, and in the process, they've become closer to each other.
Life is good for Sussex-Hamilton High School Coach Andy Cerroni.
Off the court, daughter Kira runs the school's food service program. Kira is engaged to Josh King, Cerroni's assistant coach.
On the court, Cerroni's Chargers have taken the local prep basketball scene by storm! They're 13-0 and ranked second in the area, right behind 13-0 Germantown, the defending champ!
Ceroni's young men are so tuned in they aren't looking past the next game, or even the next offensive possession, and there's added motivation.
Sussex-Hamilton senior Aaron Zagorski lost his life on January 1st.
On January 5th, four days after Zagorski's death, players and fans from Sussex-Hamilton and West Allis Nathan Hale came together in a wonderful show of support. The Hale students were mourning a loss of their own. Fans wore each other's school colors.
On Friday night, January 18th, the Chargers carry their unbeaten season and the memory of their fallen friend into a game against Marquette.
