The Hornet 7th grade lost to Trinity, 21-25, 18-25, lost to Ramsey, 24-26, 12-25, then beat Neoga, 17-25, 25-22, 25-16.

They started the season against Lutheran School State Champs Stewardson Trinity. They played well for their first game, but were swept.

“The girls played a great game against an experienced team,” said C-H coach Angela Jefferies.

The 8th grade got blitzed in game 1, then picked up play in game 2, despite the loss.

“The score didn’t reflect how great these girls played,” Coach Jefferies said. “We had a difficult time with receiving serve. Considering it was their first game of the season, they should be feeling great about their performance.”
