A special thanks to Bob Tonini of Sacred Heart, who provided the statistics for tonight’s game.  On a side note, I was sorry to hear of the season-ending knee injury to Sacred Heart’s 5-7 Sr. Krisha Byron.  Ms. Byron was a deadly outside shooter and could thread the needle with a pass.  While Sacred Heart is a very talented and deep squad, Krisha will be missed.  Best of luck as she rehabs her knee to prepare for her college career at Campbellsville.  My thoughts and prayers are with Ms. Byron and her family.
