“I am happy with how we competed since we are just coming off of spring break,” commented Lady Hornets coach Danny Westbrook. “The meet was cut short because of the weather and, along with the fact that we are nursing some injuries, we could have scored several more points. I think we could have made the team score at lot closer.”

Some of the Lady Hornets will run this Thursday in Russellville and others will compete at Hot Springs Lakeside. The next full meet for them will be the Wampus Cat Relays in Conway on Monday, April 9.
