Lady Hornets show improvement against veteran Heritage team



Few teams in any sport are as good at the beginning as they wind up being in the end and that’s even more prevalent when it’s a young team. It’s a process over the span of a season.

In the 105-degree heat at the Hornets Nest, the Lady Hornets roared back from a 21-25 loss in the first game of the best-of-five and never trailed on the way to a 25-22 win in game two.

The crucial third game was tight throughout with Bryant within 21-22 after a kill by junior Mercedes Dillard. But the Lady War Eagles scored the last three points to forge another 25-21 win and wound up taking the match 3-1 with a 25-15 win in the close-out game.
