Welcome Back!!

It's 2017!!! It's time to get down to business on a new semester and a new season. The Hornets braved the snow storm and made their way back to school. Safely back on campus, they hit the ground running. This week, they are hitting the weight room, turf, and the classroom hard in their pursuit of excellence. With the start of a new year, the girls have a lot to look forward to. We asked all of the players to tell us a little bit of what they are looking forward to in 2017.

What is your New Year's Resolution?

"My New Year's Resolution is to better myself. I plan to start new habits like saving money, eating better, and drinking more water."- Alexis

"My New Year's Resolution is to not stress the little things and enjoy 2017 with my awesome teammates."- Micaela

"I am most excited about taking Anatomy and Physiology 2. It's going to be a challenging class, but I find learning about the human anatomy is extremely interesting."- Jasmine
