Hornets Show Great Promise For Baseball Season


Baseball season got underway for the Hackett Hornets as they took on the Hector Wildcats in last nights away game. Although the Hornets lost 3-2, the boys played extremely well considering the cold temperatures and the amount of time that they have had to practice. Hackett was first to put two runs on the board in the second inning. In the fourth inning, it was Hector who added one run to the score. But by inning five it was Hector who got in two runs and the game came to an end.

Hackett is a young team with the majority of the roster being freshman. That’s no cause for concern though because according to Coach Broc Adams, his team is loaded with speed and a strong defense. The Hornets are playing in the 2A-4 conference division and will step up to bat this season against Danville, Hector, Westside, Magazine, Lavaca, and Mountainburg for their conference games.

The game that was scheduled for tonight, March 1, against Mansfield, has been postponed until further notice. As it stands now, the Hornets will travel to Lavaca on Monday, March 4, to face the Golden Arrows with a 4:30 p.m. start time.
