The Sacred Heart Rebels play in Class 1A under the Arkansas Activities Association. They are currently members of the 1A 5 North Conference.
Rebels: Over the past ten seasons, the Sacred Heart senior boys’ basketball program has set numerous school records. This time period has seen the Rebels advance to the state tournament six times. They have also collected four conference and district championships in that time span. The Rebels also captured the first ever regional championship in school history in 2011 and advanced to the state championship game in 2012. This stretch has also seen the school record for wins with 34 in 2012, followed by a 30 win season in 2013.
The Sacred Heart Rebels Senior boys’ team is coming off of the 4th state tournament appearance in the last five seasons, which is the best stretch in school history. Although the Rebels went only 19-22 last year, they peaked at the right time by making a run through the regional tournament into the championship game. This propelled the team into the state tournament in Nashville, Arkansas.
The Rebels are coached by alum Aaron Duvall (’98), who is entering his sixth year at Sacred Heart.
Lady Rebels: The Sacred Heart Lady Rebels basketball program has a long history of success. The Lady Rebels started this history long ago and took it to another level, when they won back to back state championships in 2006 and 2007. Since then, the lady Rebels have been to the state tournament 10 times in the last 12 years and have had a winning percentage of over .700 during this span. This program has been successful because of the dedication, sacrifice, and hard work put into each season by everyone involved. The lady Rebels finished with a 21-19 record in the 2014-2015 season with a state tournament appearance. The lady Rebels this year are determined to make their own history and build on to an already strong tradition. The Jr and Sr girls are now coached by Kyle Duvall (Sacred Heart Alum ‘07). The team and Coach Duvall says “Get ready Lady Rebel basketball fans, WE are ready………….ARE YOU?”
