On Thursday, Dec. 8, Sacred Heart Academy defeated Jeffersonville High School 53-38 in basketball.

The Valkyries’ player of the game was junior Kiki Samsel, with 16 points and 1 rebound.

Junior Kia Sivils led with 11 rebounds and junior Grace Berger led with 4 assists. Sacred Heart made 35% of field goals while Jeffersonville only made 21% of field goals. The win marked Coach Donna Moir’s 565th win, moving her into 7th place for all-time wins in Kentucky girls basketball.

“I learned to be more vocal on the court and lead by example. Coach Moir helped us by giving us good pointers throughout the game,” said Sivils when asked about her thoughts on the game.

SHA basketball will be playing Simon Kenton High School on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 5:00pm.
