John Holecek was in an unfamiliar position. His Loyola Academy team had a 3-3 record after falling to Montini Catholic at home on Sept. 29, adding on to a season that hadn’t gone how he planned. The Ramblers lost two consecutive games for the first time since 2006 — Holecek’s first year as the head coach — and luckily beat St. Ignatius in overtime the week before. Loyola wasn’t playing well and looked like a shell of its former self.
