Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… To say I am proud of this team would be an understatement! The past few games they have played with a win at all costs mentality. We started the game with several missed shots but our kids didn’t let that phase them. They continued to do the things we needed to do to get back into the game and gain/sustain the lead. They were very focused on winning that tournament. We are very pleased to see these guys rewarded for their hard work. However, the season is still early and we have some unfinished business.”
“… Special thanks to everyone who made the long trip to Belfry to support this great group of young men!! Truly appreciated!”
“… We are looking forward to the opportunity to play in the 2A state tournament in Owensboro next Thursday at 7PM!!”
