TAYLORVILLE-- Carey McVickers has been hired as the new head basketball coach at Sacred Heart Griffin. McVickers spent the last ten seasons at Taylorville, where he coached the girls team for seven years and the boys team for three years. Back in 2012 McVickers led the boys team to their first regional championship in over ten years.
"We wish nothing but the best for Coach McVickers and thank him for the past 10 years of leadership within the athletic program here at Taylorville High School," said Taylorville Athletic Director Paul Held.
McVickers takes over for Blake Lucas, who resigned after four seasons at SHG. The Cyclones went 66-46 overall in Lucas' four years at the helm.
