Dodd City returns to state, hoping third time is a charm

The Dodd City Lady Hornets are headed back to the state tournament for the third year in a row.

Making it to state is nothing new for this team. The Lady Hornets won the silver the past two years. Each time, they lost to Nazareth in the state championship game. Now, they are back, ready to take another swing.

There were doubters that Dodd City could make it back. After-all they were losing some key contributors from the past two teams. So much of their scoring punch was lost, but head coach Alex Stephenson went to work, finding the right formula to get this team back to the final four.

Dodd City will take on Moulton in the state semifinals on Thursday at 10am in San Antonio. If the Lady Hornets can win there, they would play either Nazareth or Hermleigh in the state championship game at 8:30am on Saturday.
