Although we lost on both levels, JV finished with a score of 3-9 and Varsity was 4-15, our defense looked great and we learned some good lessons.

Finishing out game play on Wednesday, the Hornets won on both levels against Argo at their pool. Varsity won 6-4 and JV won 7-4, playing their best game of the season to date.

Week of March 5th
Week One kept the Hornets really busy with Varsity playing 3 games and JV playing 6. The week started Monday with losses against Metea Valley on both levels, followed by a loss on the varsity level and a win for the JV against Homewood-Flossmoor at HF. The varsity had a hard-fought battle, but struggled to convert in the 4th quarter. JV was really excited to come up with the first win of the season! On Thursday, the Hornets had their first Conference matchup with Lyons Township and came up short on both levels. Varsity Hornets did, however, score two more points than last year, earning themselves pizza for dinner next week. On Friday and Saturday, the JV squad turned up with a HUGE 13-12 win over Lincoln-Way West, followed by even bigger wins on Saturday against Lincoln-Way Central and Shepard to WIN the Lincoln-Way West Warrior Warmup tournament. Way to go, Hornets!
