Lawrence Co. Head Coach Melinda Feltner
“… Proud of our girls for coming out and executing in the first half. We built a big lead but let them speed us up in the second half and didn’t execute as we needed to but we have to learn from those mistakes and get ready for tournament play. This was another good test for us to learn and grow and that’s what we want right now.
“…We have two more home games this week. Senior night with Paintsville on Thursday and Tolsia on Friday night. Two more great opponents to help better prepare us for tournament play.”
