What looked to be a rebuilding year turned out to be another remarkable season for the Nashville Hornettes.
Despite a roster full of young players, Nashville won 22 ballgames and a regional title before giving the Breese (Central) Lady Cougars all they could handle in a tough loss in the sectional championship game.
“We knew coming into the year that we’d have to get contributions from a lot of girls playing their first varsity basketball,” Nashville coach Wayne Harre said. “We struggled at times out there, but I was really proud of how they played at the end of the year.”
The Hornettes had only three seniors on the team, one of whom was lost for the season with an injury, so Nashville had to rely heavily on underclassmen. But the youngsters proved up to the challenge.
“I told them that no one was going to feel sorry for us, and that we expected them to play at a varsity level,” Harre said.
