Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… We were in the gym for about three hours yesterday together and I really don’t like to do that especially on a Sunday but we felt like it was necessary and we challenged the guys and a really hard and intense practice. I didn’t think we played hard enough against Betsy Layne on Saturday and it showed. They definitely played harder then us and it really showed on the scoreboard so give them credit for that.”
“… Against Floyd Central I thought the guys played hard from the opening tip to the final buzzer. I can’t not complain one bit about tonight’s effort. Been a tough week for us and a lot of people around Lawrence Co. and continue to pray for everyone affected. We didn’t practice until Friday but we aren’t making any excuses at all. We have told the kids from the get go whichever team stays positive and stays together throughout this season will be right there at the end.”
