In the semi-final round of the Jr High Districts, the #3 seeded Hackett Jr High Lady Hornets sped ahead of the #2 seeded Lavaca Lady Golden Arrows to take the 25-20 victory. This win upgrades Hackett to a 17-5 season record. “We were down 20-9 in the 4th and with pure determination, we came back,” expressed coach Broc Adams. “The girls played as hard as we have all year! I told them when we got to the 4th to just go out, work hard together, and leave it all on the floor! They never gave up and I am very proud of how well they stuck together. Proud would be an understatement!”
Alex Bunch led the Lady Hornets with 16 points followed by Teonna Best with six, Kyleigh Hill with two which came from two free-throws with only 16 seconds left in the game, and Lilly Slavens with one. “True proof that when you stick together and never quite, good things will happen!” Next, the Lady Hornets will be facing the Hector Lady Wildcats in the championship round of District on Saturday, February, 15 at 2 p.m.
