On January 14, with it being homecoming, the Hackett Sr High Hornets were more determined than ever to upgrade their season and bring home a win. When the Hornets hit the court, they always bring with them a high degree force that is noticed by anyone watching. And this night was no different. Although the season hasn’t been all rainbows and lollipops, it has showcased the raw talent that the Hornets roster holds.
Hackett took a home conference 47-45 loss to Magazine but it wasn’t from a shortage of effort. Dylan Katts spearheaded the points department with 22 followed by Zach Gragg with 11. Cash Oliver delivered five, Tyler Satterfield brought in four, and Jake Fisher obtained three. “We struggled to finish open looks until the fourth quarter,” explained Coach Kent Elmore.
“We went on a 22-2 run but came up just short. We will continue to work and improve on both sides of the ball. The open looks are there, we are just having difficulty converting them into points. Defensively, we have to continue to get better and step up the intensity every day.”
The Hackett Hornets will head to Mountainburg on Friday, January 17 to take on the (6-11) Dragons.
