Seward basketball mom cheers on husband, daughter

The Seward girls basketball team has won four straight, undefeated Class B state titles. The Tvrdy family has played a big role in that success: coach, player and the woman who holds the family together.

It's been a wild ride for fans, but especially for Shelly Tvrdy. She's mom to player Hannah and wife to Coach Tom.

"I'm probably a little harder on Hannah than even her coach - her dad," Tvrdy said.

That's because Tvrdy is a former Husker. She played for the women's team from 1983-1987. Next year, her daughter will play for Nebraska.

"She's going to play 30 years later to the T," Tvrdy said.

Tvrdy is a vocal cheerleader in the stands and sometimes a nervous wreck. She also takes stats during all the games. And if she misses the real action because she's too busy writing?

"I'll just watch the game at home because the coach filmed it and he's my husband and we can watch it as many times as we want," Tvrdy said.

Tvrdy, like everyone else, is rooting hard for Seward's fifth straight championship win this weekend. But if it doesn't happen, she says the team will always have their memories.

"It's fun to reminisce and remember all the teams that have come through here the past six years," Tvrdy said.

Top ranked Seward made it through the first round Thursday night in an exciting match up against Holdrege.
