Hornets Buckle Down For Border Classic


By Megan Hecox
The Hackett Classic was a success for the Hornets who held the two-day long basketball tournament on November 19th and 20th. The Sr High boys and girls teams both competed against the Mansfield Tigers in Round 1 and the Western Yell Wolverines in Round 2.
The Lady Hornets went 1-1 in the tournament defeating the Mansfield Lady Tigers 35-27 but fell short against the Western Yell Lady Wolverines 50-41. The Lady Hornets played fiercely against both teams showing that they can hold their ground against any competitor that comes their way.
Although the boy’s squad lost both of their games against Mansfield and Western Yell, the players and coaches learned a lot and know what they need to do to create success. With both games combined, the Hornets only lost by a total of 13 points. With their first conference game being on December 7th, the boys are taking this time to learn from their mistakes and continue to grow as a team.
The Sr High Hornets will go into next week ready for redemption as they battle for the ball in the Border Classic at Omaha. Both teams will play on Tuesday, November 27th with the girls playing at 4 pm and the boys playing at 515 pm.
