Lawrence Co. Head Coach Melinda Feltner
“… Yeah we definitely needed it. We’ve been struggling bad, should have won a couple games in Tennessee.”
“We were way out manned against Happy Valley, Tn, but we still competed with Cullman, Alabama who is much better then us.” We got into foul trouble vs Pike Central and couldn’t recover, just struggling right now but a good win vs Rose Hill.”
