Senior Morgan Miller and sophomore Peyton Cyrus have been setting the table for the middle of the order, coach Feltner said..
Sophomore Brad Parks is solid at the hot corner and senior Zach Keesee has been playing well even though he isn’t 100% after being injured during football season.
Senior Drake Barager has done a good job in centerfield and just lost a heartbreaker at Wayne on Friday 1-0 on the mound.
Lawrence Co. is the favorite once again in the 60th district followed by Belfry, Pike Co. Central and Phelps.

Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“…Been really inconsistent so far, not catching the ball like I thought we would and that has been frustrating.” We are 2-0 in district play so that is a plus, our schedule is always tough and we try to get our kids prepared for post season.” In two of our losses we have committed way too many errors and that is not Lawrence Co. baseball, we pride ourselves on defense.”
