When it comes to Hornet volleyball, Coaches Bridget Freeman and Broc Adams, have found the winning formula. And it starts with Jr High play. To have a winning program, special attention should be given at all angles. Watching coaches Freeman and Adams on the court is like watching a game of chess. The duo is precise with their player placement always being three steps ahead of the competition. Fans got to watch this process in motion on September 9, when the Lady Hornets traveled to Mansfield to face the Lady Tigers.
Although the final result for the Lady Hornets wasn’t a win, it was definitely a close call. After two sets, the final scores read 25-20 and 25-15. Mackenzie Mendenhall wangled 1 kill, 2 assists and 4 digs. Makenzie Freeman bagged 2 aces, 1 kill, and 2 digs. Abby McBride earned 1 kill and 4 digs.
