The Hornets spent the day in shoulder pads and shorts working out the kinks in their offensive and defensive packages during their second spring training in so many years as a program.

Last season the Hornets came from out of nowhere and stood toe-to-toe with the University of West Alabama and then picked up their first win of the season on the road against Allen College in South Carolina.

That not only turned out to be the first win in the school’s history, it served as the first victory for the Hornets in the Southeastern Athletic Conference.

Last fall turned out to be a year of firsts for a program that many even knew existed. The Hornets won their first home game against Atlantic College-Charlotte in a complete cakewalk.

Concordia rallied on to win the SEAC South and also won the SEAC Conference title in the USCAA.

This year, however, the Hornets are going to have to work a lot harder to continue their success from a year ago.
