Lawrence Co. Head Coach Melinda Feltner
“… Our girls played a tough game on Monday night against one of the best teams in the region and wasn’t able to pull it out. We took them down to the wire. We had our chances at the end and couldn’t make baskets when we needed them.
“…I was proud of the girls that we were able to come out tonight and rebound from a tough loss. Our defense did an amazing job in the beginning and went on a 16-0 run. We maintained the lead heading into the 2nd half. Morgan came out on fire and hit 7 3s in the second half. They battled and didn’t quit but we were able to pull out the win. We had a balanced scoring attack and I’m proud of that. That’s what we have to continue to do.
