Lady Crusaders punch ticket to fourth straight state championship


HATTIESBURG – It’s a new team and it’s a new season, but the result remains the same every year for the Sacred Heart Lady Crusaders.

For the fourth straight season, and sixth time in the last seven years, the Lady Crusaders will play for a state title after defeating St. Patrick 5-1 Tuesday night at the Sacred Heart Athletic Complex.

Sacred Heart scores in final minutes, advances to south state


HATTIESBURG – Sacred Heart senior Gabe Naquin loves the drama, and he was the center of it Saturday evening.

With four minutes left in regulation in a scoreless game, Naquin powered a shot inside the Franklin County box. Unlike the previous 14 shots on goal for the Crusaders, the Bulldogs’ goalkeeper couldn’t save it.
