The Frazee Hornets put some extra miles on the bus last week as the Hornets had three road games. 

The Hornets dropped all three games, which included a stop at Class A fifth ranked New York Mills on Saturday.

This week the Hornets, who are 3-10 overall and 1-5 in the Heart O’ Lakes Conference, will get some home cooking as they hosted Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal on Monday, before hosting Perham in another HOL Conference game on Friday night. 

The Hornets will host Battle Lake in non-conference action on Tuesday, Feb. 8 as well.
