Hornets end season 27 seconds from a three-peat

Who would had thought after losing four starters from the state champions of a year ago that we would make another run for the top team in 2-A?  

A lot changed but an important ingredient stayed the same and that was Damon West, Antwuan James, Ron Ellis, Billy Green and Johnnie Mack. These coaches stayed the course and produced another sterling team that went undefeated again in the district and finished with a 27-6 record.

Hornets two games away from third straight title

Three down and two to go for a three-peat of the state championship after taking care of Mangham and Jonesboro-Hodge in typical Hornet fashion, Mangham 95-68 and he latter 87-57. 

Didn’t get to see the Mangham game myself but I heard that the Dragons “froze” the ball in a delaying tactic to keep the Hornets from breaking the century mark on them. I suppose any “moral” victory is better than none.

Mangham Lady Dragons 8-0 as district play starts

The Dragons held Delcambre to two runs in the first inning and then shut them down for the rest of the game.
