Boys Varsity Basketball, Girls Varsity Basketball · Three Rams named to Big 56 All-Conference Teams


The Ringgold boys and girls basketball teams placed three student-athletes on the Big 56 All-Conference teams, as announced by league officials last Friday.

Senior guard Demetrius Butler led the Rams’ selections, landing on the first team. Despite the shortened season, Butler still managed to make his mark, leading the team in scoring and becoming only the 9th player in program history to eclipse 1,000-career points. He also finished having played in 87 games over four years, breaking the program record for games played in a career held by Mike Horan (83).

On the girls side, junior Kirra Gerard earned her first selection to the all-conference teams, making  the second team. Gerard was a jack of all trades for the Lady Rams, being relied upon to run the offense as well as be a scrappy leader on defense.

Finally, junior Nick Peccon garnered Honorable Mention honors, finishing as Ringgold second leading scorer, averaging 14.8 points per game.

Congratulations to our Ringgold hoopers!
