Senior Emilee Everett was the only player in the game in double digits tallying 11 for Sacred Heart. Junior teammate Ellie Woodall got close to double figures ending her evening with 9.

The Sacred Heart Boys got off to a slow start Friday night leading by only 5 after one quarter of play, but then hit the gas and by the time the dust settled the Knights had their second big win for the 2020/21 season with a 44 point wipeout of Rossville. Sacred Heart shut out the ‘Dawgs in the third quarter with the Knight getting 20 unanswered points in that stanza.
Sacred Heart Junior Alex Disberger led all scorer with 18 nearly outscoring the ‘Dawgs by himself, but he had plenty of help. Senior Caleb Gilliland was the only other Knight in double figures with 13. In total, 8 Knights cracked the scoring column.
Contrast that with Rossville who got points from only 4 players led by Junior Aiden Garcia who had 8.
Both the Boys and Girls will be in action on Saturday taking on Southeast of Saline at home. The Girls tip at 3 PM with the Boys playing 15 minutes after the completion of the Girls game. These games were originally scheduled for early January, but had to be moved because KHSAA’s Covid guidelines don’t permit the game to be played as first scheduled.
