SOUTH WAYNE - The Black Hawk girls basketball team has done plenty of winning in recent seasons, but precious few of those victories have come in tight games or have required huge comebacks.The Warriors checked both items off their to-do list Monday night in a 48-47 non-conference victory against Clinton.Trailing by 16 points at halftime, the state's No. 2-ranked Division 5 team stormed back behind a big second half from sophomore point guard Jen Wellnitz and a solid bench effort to improve to 5-0. "You want a team you feel confident going to war with and these kids showed the ability to battle," Black Hawk coach Mike Flanagan said.
