“I felt like it was one of our best defensive efforts we have put together this year,” stated coach, Broc Adams. “Lavaca is a good team and is well-coached so it speaks to how hard these girls prepared to come out with a win against them!” For District semi-finals, the Lady Hornets will go to battle against the #2 seeded Mountainburg Lady Dragons on Thursday, February 20 at 6:30 p.m. in Hector. “It doesn’t get any easier with Mountainburg. Coach Dean does a great job with them! We will have to identify their shooters and work to secure rebounds so they don’t get any second chance opportunities!”
