Sacred Heart Boys and Girls Beat Bergan, Take Home 1st Place at Freeman Holiday Tourney

ADAMS – The Sacred Heart Irish boys and girls took home a gold medal Friday.

The Lady Irish (rated 2nd in D2) and Fremont Archbishop Bergan’s (6th in C2) championship game at the Freeman Holiday Tournament was close throughout, and Bergan held a slim one-point lead when Sacred Heart’s Jade Hill hit a turnaround jumper with 11 seconds left to seal the title and give the Irish a 45-44 win.

Hill finished with 18 points in the game.

In the boys championship, the 4th-rated Irish cruised to a relatively easily 43-31 victory over the Knights (rated 10th).

Drew Bippes, Noah Keller and Tristan Keithly all had 11 points each.

FCSH boys and girls will next take on HTRS on January 3rd.
