The Sr High Hackett Hornets experienced one incredible 2018-2019 basketball season. From immense conference wins to Runner-Up at District to a seat at Regionals, the Hornets have an abundance to be proud of. Hackett will close down their season with a 12-15 overall record and a 7-5 conference play record.
Dominating at District, the Hornets made it all the way to the final round where they ended with a 51-33 loss to Moutainburg and being named the 2019 District Runner-Ups. Hackett beat out Westside 60-37 in the first round and blew Lavaca out of the water 38-17 in round two. Earning a spot at Regionals, the Hornets had to face the Flippin Bobcats where they ended falling short 34-31.
Head Coach for the Hornets, Broc Adams, said this about Hacketts final game and the season as a whole, “We missed some opportunities against Flippin but we played hard and gave ourselves a chance to win. At the end of the day, that’s all I can ask for from these guys! I’m proud of how hard they fought this year and for how well they played together the last few weeks! We will use the experience as we work in the offseason and prepare to take that next step next year!”
The Hornets will be retiring six seniors from the 2018-2019 Hackett roster. Anthony Collins, Bryce Brown, Christian Woods, Bradley Martin, Brady Hester, and Luke Petterson will all be graduating to brighter futures while conquering every opportunity the world has to offer.
