Sacred Heart High School has hired Brian Gormley as their boys basketball coach.  Gormley takes over for Pat Martin, whose contract was not renewed for 2018-19 after coaching for 11 seasons and leading the Knights to two state titles.

Gormley is no stranger to Sacred Heart.  He will begin a second stint as the Knights boys basketball coach, as he was the head man from 1997-2004.  He also spent the past seven seasons as the head coach of the Sacred Heart Junior High boys.  In his first seven seasons as the SHHS high school boys coach, Gormley did lead the Knights to the 2A State Tournament once in 2003, where they fell in the first round in Manhattan.  We'll have more on this story when it becomes available.
