As Principal Leroy Hamilton, Jr. addressed the Arcadia Hornets before they set off on their journey, these were his stirring words of encouragement he shared with them:
Coach Jackson, Coach Champion, and Coach Fielding have prepared you to be a CHAMPION.
You played 19 games For This Moment.
You played 38 halves;
You played 76 quarters;
You played 608 minutes;
You have practiced over 100 hours. That’s more than 6000 minutes.
You are prepared to be a CHAMPION.
Tuesday, I asked you to focus between the lines. Today I’m asking you to play hard!
I’m asking you to fight through adversity!
And I’m asking you to Sting Like A Hornet!
-When the ref throws the ball up, I want you to be Stinging Like A Hornet!
-If we go down 10, I want you to be Stinging Like A Hornet!
-When we go up by 10, I want you to be Stinging Like A Hornet!
-When the final buzzer goes off and we hold up the State Championship Trophy, I want everyone in the coliseum to know that Arcadia fought and we were Stinging Like A Hornet!
