Sometimes you just have to go for it and that is what the young, rebuilding Hornets did. With some great swims, a few breaks, finishing SIXTH in D-1 is quite an accomplishment. Coach Brunty wanted a Top-10 and “thought” is everything went right he thought 5-6-7 was in the cards. Without a doubt, his best “coaching” job yet. No one saw this one coming. Below is a run down of how the meet unfolded.
