After not even seeing a football field since the previous Friday night performance, HMK put on a gutsy (and, in many ways, improved) performance at home vs. Lancaster Catholic on Friday night. On Saturday, HMK spent the afternoon setting drill pages at a record pace (20 in four hours...unheard of!) in an effort to make up for the week's rainouts. All in all, the group is poised for a GREAT week of rehearsal and an impressive Opening Knight performance!
