Maybe it was the warmer temperature, or maybe it was being back home at Macken, but Good Friday ended up being Great Friday for the Hornets. The Varsity Hornets picked up their first two wins of the season on Friday afternoon at Macken Park against the Cameron Dragons. Throughout the doubleheader, it was the seniors who led both offensively and defensively. Game One featured senior Kyle Gaines who had a six hits on the afternoon with six RBI. Devin Peterson had a key pinch-hit RBI in Game 2 and Blake Eversole helped his own cause by being the winning pitcher AND the walk-off batter in the second game to send Cameron back home, victims of a Hornet sweep. Not to mention junior Grant Lorenzen’s complete game victory in Game 1 where he also went 4-5 with two doubles.
