In the girls game, the Lady Hornets ended their season (9-5) on a high note with a big 32-6 win. The young Lady Hornets led 8-2 after the first and 16-4 at half before opening up a 28-6 after the third.

"It was good to finish our season with a strong win," coach Darrell Morris said. "These girls have played great defense all year and if they work on shooting in the off-season, they will be a tough team as they progress through high school."

Rylie Boyce had 10 points, 2 rebounds, 7 steals, and 3 assists. while Ella Posada (5 rebounds, 4 steals) and Maddy Mascho (1 steal) had 6 points each. Jordyn Abernathy added 4 points, 1 rebound, 5 steals, and 2 assists.

The B team also won 21-14 to finish their season at 7-6-1 under coach Kristen West. Emily Morris, Maddy Mascho, and Emily Pierce had 4 points each. Olivia Chilson added 3 points, while Hannah Gilmour, Lily Covert, and Bring Wilson chipped in 2 points each.

In the boys game the Hornets had their 9-game win streak snapped in a 36-28 loss to the Tigers. Mansfield led 12-7 after the first quarter but Wellsboro cut it to a 16-14 score at haftime, but that would be as close as they would get. Peyton McClure led Wellsboro with 12 points, Conner Adams had 7, Cameron Brought scored 3, and Spence Wetzel, Will Kibler, and Hayes Campbell all scored 2 points each.

In the B game the Hornets won 29-21 behind 16 points from Tyler Youells.
