The Athens Hornets finished off their home schedule with a bang, dropping the Palestine Wildcats 9-0 Tuesday at Hornet Field.

The win, on Senior Night, pushed the Hornets' record to 7-2 in 20-3A action and 14-7 overall. More importantly, it kept them in the hunt for a district championship — just one year after the team went 0-10 in district play.

The Hornets close out the regular season Friday on the road against Brownsboro. Game time is set for 6 p.m.
