The Frazee Hornets swept a triangular on Thursday night against a pair of familiar opponents. 

The Hornets defeated Barnesville and Wadena-Deer Creek by a combined score of 123-30 to secure a pair of wins. The next night, the Hornets packed the gym as they hosted Perham in a Highway 10 clash between the two neighboring schools. Unfortunately, the Yellowjackets were able to hold off the Hornets charge to come away with the win.

This week the Hornets compete in a triangular in Park Rapids against the Panthers and Hibbing in their lone action of the week.
