Varsity In our second week of play the hornets hosted West Suburban Conference Opponent Morton at home on Thursday night. The hornets were missing key starters on the night and new players stepped up to fill critical roles on the court. Despite their attempts the hornets fell to Morton with scores 20-25, 25-27 and were unable to finish despite a late effort push to pull ahead and win. Middle Abranet Layne led the team in kills for the night and notched 6 kills while also contributing 2 solo blocks. New starting setters Peyton Wiley and Sophia Schiappa got in the action too with Peyton serving 2 aces, 7 assists and 3 digs. While Sophia added 1 ace, 1 kill, 7 assists and 5 digs. Middle Amelia Brennan also contributed 3 kills, 1 solo block and 1 dig. It was a tough loss for the hornets who look to rebound after spring break with 3 busy weeks of play.
