The Hiram Hornets volleyball team hosted the Locust Grove Wildcats in the first round of the state playoffs. Hiram was the number 2 seed from Area 7 (5A) and the visitors from Henry County were the number 3 seed from their region 4. It was a very exciting match that went 5 games to determine the winner. Locust Grove pulled out the victory by winning the final game 15-13 and ending the season for the Hornets.
The Hornets have been a regular in the playoffs every year since 2011 and were hopeful to get past the first round this year. This was a very exciting match that could have easily went either way but when the final serve was hit the ladies from Locust Grove advanced to the second round to play Buford.
Congratulations to coach Kevin Thomas and the Hornets on a great season and also in collecting his 300th coaching win in this season.
