This year Beatty basketball will return with head coach Steve Sullivan in his second year.
The Hornets were 6-8 last year in Division IV Southern, finishing in fifth place.
The team will have five returning lettermen and three starters.
The following are the top players for the Hornets: Jhonpaul Adujar, junior; Lindzey Gross, senior; Daniel Jacob, senior; Octavio Maldonado, sophomore; Bryan Ortiz, senior; Jacob Oseguera, junior; Matt Reetz, junior; Robby Revert, junior; Jake Ybarra, junior and Nick Zamora, senior.
Beatty will return three starters from a team that finished fifth in their division and should compete for a playoff berth again this season.
The Hornets season starts Friday in a tournament in Las Vegas.
