Here We Go Again - The Hive Student Section

The student section at Poplarville High School, The Hive, is back in action for the 2015-2016 school year.  The Hive, led by Abbi Holliday and Devynn Hart, is expected  to be bigger and louder than ever.  The student section is active at every single home game and some away games.  They are currently trying to organize a bus to transfer students to and from the away games.  Abbi Holliday states, “The Hive swarms our opponents any chance we get.  As for right now we ask that only high school students be in The Hive.  No one really realizes how much our sports teams depend on us!  The more people we have in The Hive, the better.”  So everyone come out to watch our Hornets swarm the next opposing team and “Hold It Down” so that they will “Bust It Wide Open” and “I Believe That We Will Win” because “Here We Go Again”.
