NORFOLK, Neb. – A young Northeast Community College basketball fan was no match for the college’s Hawk mascot during a break between the women’s regular season basketball game against Iowa Central Community College Wednesday night in Norfolk.
Aria Hoehne, of Battle Creek, was challenged by Jazzy to perform some dance moves before the crowd in the Cox Activities Center on the Northeast campus. After Jazzy did a few butt bumps on the floor, the 9-year-old dancer easily performed a twist move, leaning back on her right hand to the cheers of everyone in attendance.
Aria is the daughter of Cara and Vince Hoehne. Cara Hoehne is a business instructor at Northeast.
Both the Northeast men’s and women’s basketball teams closed out the regular season against Iowa Central Wednesday night. However, all four teams will face each other again in the coming days.
The Northeast men (5-22.1-15 ICCAC) will open post season play in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference Region XI Division Two tournament in a first round game against the Tritons on Fri., Feb. 25, at 7 p.m., in Mason City Iowa. The Hawks women (12-18, 9-11 ICCAC) will also face Iowa Central in a Region XI quarterfinal contest on Wed., March 2, at 5:30 p.m., in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
