September 19, 2013

Highland’s 0-3 start this season is a bit deceiving, as two losses have been by a total of nine points. And it won’t get any easier as the Hornets face 3-0 Sands at home this Friday.

“One thing the kids in Highland have always been good about is looking at the big picture,” Shelton said.
