As usual, all good things must come to an end. Including the Jr Lady Hornets 2018-2019 basketball season. They might not have won every game that they played in. But the Lady Hornets always exemplified what it took to be an accomplished player. Determination, discipline, and self-sacrifice.
Hackett rounded out their season, playing in two rounds of the 2A-4 Jr District Tournament. The Lady Hornets scored a 22-18 victory, conquring the Westside Lady Rebels in their first round of play. On their second night, Hackett lost their footing in their game against Mountainburg and fell 38-22.
“This is my 17th year of coaching basketball at Hackett Schools and this year’s junior high team is one of the topmost improved teams I have ever coached,” voiced Head Coach, Claude Foster. “From the beginning of this season until last night, we got better every week and gained confidence throughout the season. This group of junior high girls has truly impressed me with their willingness to work hard, learn, and improve on the aspects of the game that they needed to get better at.”
