Louisa, Ky. — The Louisa Middle School Bulldogs are gearing up for another successful season and looking to hang a banner. And it all starts on defense according to coach Matt Maynard.
The Dawgs are looking to build on last year’s success that left a sour taste after falling short of the team goal. LMS lost three starters from last year’s team but 8th grade coach Matt Maynard returns a ton of experience. The 7th grade team finished runners-up in the OVC.
The Dawgs will play a fast and exciting brand of basketball that will be fun to watch. They will use their size and depth to wear teams down. They will also full court press after makes to get teams out of their offense.
Louisa plays in the OVC which is a very good Middle School Conference with the likes of Ashland, Boyd Co. and Russell just to name a few. The Dawgs will also travel to Johnson Central and Paintsville. Jeremy Wellman will coach the 7th grade team and Marty Marcum will coach the 6th grade team. All Home games will be played at Louisa Middle School.
…”We expect to play for a championship and hang a banner,” Coach Jeremy Wellman said. “We are going to play fast and use our depth. We tried to out score teams last year but when the shots didn’t fall it cost us, defense will be much improved this year. We have worked on it a lot this preseason.
Our league ( OVC ) is very good with Russell, Ashland and Boyd Co. Our schedule is top notch and that will only help us at the end.
We have a lot of guys with high basketball IQ and have played a lot of games together.”
