JACKSON, Tenn. – Sacred Heart’s student section has a lot to cheer for this season. The Knights are riding into unfamiliar territory. “Our student body is so excited because we’ve kind of been the bottom of the barrel type team that everyone looks forward to playing homecoming against,” said head coach David Hunt. The boys varsity basketball team has only been around for three years. Now, Sacred Heart finds itself in the second round of the region tournament for the first time in school history. “It feels real good. Making history here is a real blessing,” said senior Tay Gibbs. Next up for Sacred Heart is Lausanne on Thursday. Advancing to the next round isn’t the team’s ultimate goal. “We still haven’t made our goal yet. We gotta keep moving forward and keeping going harder,” said junior Wes Ragsdale. Ragsdale and his teammates say they’re playing for a state championship. Their head coach says this season starts a new tradition. “They’ve learned how to win. I think this legacy has been started by this group of young men and I’m proud of them,” said Hunt.
