Although the Hackett Sr High Lady Hornets have lost three games in a row, the girls are really starting to come together at the right time. Recently the Lady Hornets hosted the Mountainburg Lady Dragons to a hard-fought hoops fest. It was a slow struggle by both teams in the first half of the game with Hackett leaving the first quarter down 14-2. The Lady Hornets did battle back to take the lead in the fourth quarter but unfortunately, time ran out and Hackett took a fall 56-48.
Kayla Richardson led the team with 12 points followed by Madi Taylor with 11, Rain Vaughn with eight, Faith Thomas with seven, and Kandace Byrd and Autum Neal five apiece. Coach Broc Adams filled us in with his thoughts on the game. “I thought we played as hard and as well as we have all year. Hopefully it will give us the confidence we need going into tonight’s last regular-season game and into the district tournament next week!”
The Hackett Lady Hornets are sitting 5-16 in total season play and 1-10 in conference. On Friday, February 14, the Lady Hornets will host the (3-8) Westside Lady Rebels in their last conference game of the season starting at 6 p.m.
