Her resume' includes 10 years of collegiate coaching, yet something about taking over a struggling high school program that hadn't won more than nine games since 2004 appealed to Aimee Litka.

"I think it's a real opportunity to build something," Litka said Thursday. "I enjoy the challenge of developing a program. I've had such overwhelming support the last 24 hours, it's reassuring to me that it was the right move. I was in a great situation. We were a couple games from the national tournament. I wasn't really looking around. It was going to have to be the right thing. The school and the support system is phenomenal. It all sparked my interest. I saw an opportunity in front of me and I decided to go for it. I'm blessed that it worked out this way."
