Sr Hornets Get Bit By Wildcats


On Tuesday, December 17, the Hackett Sr High Hornets stayed home for their second conference game of the season. Hosting the Hector Wildcats, both Hornet teams were geared up and ready to make it rain in Block City. The Lady Hornets were up first hoping to set the tone for a winning night. Unfortunately, Hackett couldn’t get ahead of Hector’s backboard action. “We just couldn’t get the ball to go in,” explains Head Coach for the Lady Hornets, Broc Adams. “We have to keep working on shooting and being more confident.”

The Lady Hornets ended falling to the Lady Wildcats 28-35 putting them with a 2-6 season record and 0-2 in conference. Scoring some nice bucket action was Faith Thomas and Kayla Richardson with 10 points each. Thomas was also active around the rim with five rebounds while Richardson broke ankles with her three steals. Rain Vaughn got some court time earning four points. And Autum Neal and Shayla Foster netted two points apiece.

The Hornets saw the same fate as the girls as they also had problems getting the ball to the net. Hackett took a 31-42 loss against Hector setting them at 1-7 for the season and 0-2 in conference play. Hornet Head Coach, Kent Elmore stated. “We lost a tough one at home against Hector. The shooting confidence is not where we need it to be. Repetition is key to find the confidence we need to knock down open shots.” The Sr High Hornets will next take on the Mulberry Yellow Jackets on Thursday, December 19 starting at 6 p.m.
