Replica Jerseys

Wendy brought in a sample jersey from Titan Sports. The jersey was voted on and passed to sell the replica jerseys to parents and students. The jersey will contain Hornets on the front and player last name and number on the back. Wendy is checking to see if the price also includes the number on the front. Titan Sports will provide the sale sheets. The jerseys will also be available in women cuts and youth sizes. We will plan to sell the replicas for $30.00.

Spirit Program

If players have not visited area businesses that they signed up for they should plan to do so as soon as possible as the due date for area businesses was set for August 1st.
