Who was it that said “All good things must come to an end?”

Even knowing that, it makes it no easier when the end does come. Right now the Lady Hornets are heartsick that they did not win three more games that would have meant a state championship.  Now they get little consolation that dozens of teams would by very happy to have made it to the quarter finals in the state tournament.

Hornets still on track for state

There was not much difference between the first stage of the state playoffs and the last action in the regular season.

It wasn’t a pretty sight as the Hornets triumphed 102-25 and that with the “mercy” clock running and the substitutes doing most of the scoring in the second half. It may have been Keshie Natt’s second three that put the Hornets over the century mark. He wound up with two threes and a free throw for seven points.
