One thing that the Hackett Sr High Lady Hornets don’t do is lay down in the face of defeat. Sure they’ve hit some bumps in the road. Sure they aren’t necessarily having the season they hoped for. But one thing is certain and that is the fact that these girls are growing and improving every single day. They show up, put in the work, and evolve by consistently fixing their miscues.
On February 7, the Lady Hornets started off strong in their match-up against the Magazine Lady Rattlers but unfortunately hit a wall in the second half of the game leading to a 54-33 loss. “We were down a couple of girls that play a lot due to illness. I thought our girls played hard, we just couldn’t get the ball to fall in the second half,” explained head coach, Broc Adams.
Shayla Foster finished the game with 11 points followed by Faith Thomas with seven, Autum Neal with five, Brooke Holt with four, Madeline Freeman with two, and Jordan Duncan netting one. With two games left until District, the Lady Hornets will host the (7-3) Mountainburg Lady Dragons on Tuesday, February 11 starting at 6 p.m. Also tonight, the 2A State Champion Lady Hornet Volleyball team will be receiving their championship rings during halftime of the boys’ game.
