Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis York
“… Going to get everybody’s best shot, especially in District Games.” We played really hard the entire game and I was proud of that.” Looked a lot better in the second half, only played two games in two weeks so we were a little rusty.” Two big games coming up the next two days. Not going to over look Phelps at all but Huntington is very good it will be a good test for us.”
