Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… Two great wins today. Showed a lot of fight and ability to battle back and over come some adversity. Down a couple of regular guys defensively and hopeful to get healthy in the next 2 weeks heading into post season.”
“… Boyd county is always a big game for us with them being an old district rival. Coach Conley has a very nice ball club led by several seniors and to pick up 2 wins against them is big for our kids.”
“… Bryce Blevins and Blue Fletcher were spectacular on the mound today and Jake Derifield did a great job out of the bullpen.”
“… Tough road loss against Paintsville early in week we just couldn’t string together a big inning in that one.”
“… Road loss at Fairland is 100% on me we clearly were not mentally ready to compete that night and I will make sure that doesn’t happen again I tip my hat to Fairland they were ready.”
“… Tough week ahead of us and I’m excited for the challenge for our guys.”
