Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… We are looking forward to the opportunity of going to Owensboro and competing in the 2A state tournament. Playing Ohio State commit George Washington and CAL in the first round is certainly a tough matchup but one that we are definitely excited about. They shoot the ball well and like to get up and down the floor, we feel like it has potential to be a really fun and exciting game. We like the way our team has been playing as of late and hopefully we can take that momentum with us to Owensboro!.”
