Sacred Heart’s Christian Nava clears the ball against Webb School of Bell Buckle in a sub-state match.

Coach: Christopher Harrington

Record: 11-6-1

Opening opponent: Knoxville Webb on Wednesday at Richard Siegel Soccer Complex at 4 p.m.

Road to state: Region – Beat Harding Academy 2-0, Lost to ECS 4-0, Beat Lausanne 2-1; Sub-state – Beat Webb School of Bell Buckle 1-0.

Players to watch: Sidney Bryant (Sophomore, forward); Tim Geraghty (Senior, midfielder)

Three facts to know: This season marked the first time that Sacred Heart had advanced farther than the region quarterfinals, and the Knights are now participating in the state tournament.

According to Harrington, the turning point in the season came in a 3-0 loss to Jackson Christian. The team had a sit down, and the results improved.

The leading scorer for the Knights is sophomore Sidney Bryant with 17 goals, and freshman Sean Graham is not far behind, so the future is bright on the offensive side of the ball.
