The Hornets open up their season tonight vs conference opponent Lutheran HS. The Hornets have the highest expectations in years due to a very good group of seniors. They’ve dedicated all of their time to improving since the Monday after the season ended last year. They came up with the motto “The Last Ride” over the offseason and the work they’ve put in has reflected that. It is their team to lead and the season as a whole will depend on their play and how they bring the others along.
Opening up vs. Lutheran is a tough test early due to their size, returning players, and expectation to be a contender to win the conference this year. With Ritter, Scecina, and Speedway losing a lot of players from last year, the conference looks to be wide open for anyone’s taking. A revamped offense and solid returning players on defense allows us to be thrown right there in the mix. So, why not us? It will be an exciting year for the Hornets and we hope you join us on Friday nights to experience the ride!
