Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… It was a good bounce back. Proud of our kids for battling! We had to overcome some foul trouble, but our kids just kept chipping away at it and were able to get our first home win. Yet again, our bench came in and contributed in a very positive way. We have some young kids stepping up and doing some good things for us. Great team effort!”
