Harrison couldn’t use home court to its advantage in its class ‘C’ district opener on March 8. The Hornets, hosting eventual quarterfinal qualifying Beaverton, fell 65-18 on a night where not much went right for the team.

“We could not put the ball in the hoop,” Harrison head coach Travis Veit said. “We put up plenty of decent shots and got the ball to the post more than usual, but could not find the bottom of the basket. We just could not stop Carter Johnston either, he made two of his three pointers with the ball being tipped by Joel Coughlin on the release.”

The Hornets were in a big hole early, 22-9 after one and trailed 43-13 at the half and 60-13 entering the fourth.

Leading the way in the game was Ryan Carlstrom with seven points, with Joel Coughlin and Bryce Lypovsky adding four points apiece.

On March 2, the Hornets closed out their regular season with a thrilling double overtime win at Farwell, 68-67.

The Hornets led 12-8 after one and 26-23 at the half before the Eagles claimed a 39-34 margin entering the fourth. From there the game was tied at the end of the fourth and after the first extra session.

Leading the way in the win was Carlstrom with 18 points, Jared Bennett netted 15 and Couglin, despite plagued by fouls, finished with nine points.

Harrison finishes the season 4-17 overall and 1-13 in the JPC.
