Fastbreak effort

Senior Tyler Lewis races to the basket for a layup in the team’s battle with Little River Academy Tuesday. Lewis scored 29 points to lead the Hornets’ scoring. Lewis scored 12 of his points in the first quarter on five of eight shooting. Lewis has been effective handling the point guard duties during the early part of the season. The Hornets will be at Taylor Tuesday for a non-district tilt.
