Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… Against Russell it was a nice come from behind win. Jacob Fletcher stepped up and did what a senior should do. He was really good that nigh, he was commanding the strike zone with both pitches and just competed. Gave us a chance. We had some tough luck offensively seemingly all game. But finally broke through in the 5th and then Brayden Maynard stepped up with a big 2 run double in the 6th. Nice early win.”
“…Against Floyd Central we came out a little flat and worked around what could’ve been a couple of big innings for them. Got it going pretty good in the 3rd and ran away with it. Abner Collinsworth really paced the offense- hitting for the cycle and driving in 8 runs. I don’t recall ever having a player hit for the cycle (if I’m wrong I apologize to whichever former player it was). That’s one of the rarest things to happen in baseball and pretty special night for him.”
