Lady Hornets getting Ready!

On August 13-14th the Lady Hornets basketball team had a clinic to kick off the new school year. Rick Torbett from Better Basketball was the presenter. He is the inventor of the Read and React offense. He came all the way from Atlanta to present the clinic to our team. The girls spent 17 hours over two days learning new ways to integrate his techniques into our offense. Not only did we obtain a lot of new ideas we also re-enforced a lot of the fundamentals that we had already been implementing. We all learned a lot and I know it will be extremely beneficial this season and in the future. Coach Torbett was very complimentary to our team and mentioned several times how intelligent and hard working the girls were.
We would like to extend a special thanks to everyone who made this happen. To Mr. Gott for allowing us to use the facilities, to the team mothers who fed us twice a day both days, to the girls themselves. We had 16 girls there both days. Every girl who played high school basketball last year that didn’t graduate participated. That says a lot about the commitment of our team.

Again, thank you all for your continued support!!!
